Neda Was A Christian?

I wouldn’t be surprised if she was targeted by the Basiji thug because of her cross necklace.

    First, Neda is not a Christian name. It’s a pure Persian/Aryan name, which means “call” or “voice”.

    Secondly, Farvahar has many different shapes. So, you cannot judge the shape by looking at just one or few pictures. Some have long wings and some have short wings. And, I’m not just talking about Farvahar necklaces that you can find in ancient bazaars. You see many different shapes of Farvahars on walls in Takhte Jamshid (Marvdasht) as well.

    Thirdly, I don’t think it’s appropriate to argue about which religion she practiced (if she was religious, that is) because, frankly, it’s none of my business. It’s a personal matter. Her family and close friends are suffering enough from her loss. So, this kind of discussion is not helpful.



  5. Where did you get the idea that I was arguing about which religion she practiced?

    I asked a question. I thought it was an interesting observation.

    If the discussion is none of your business, why are you discussing it?

    I’m not. This post is over 6 months old.
