Human Rights lawyer Abdol-Karim Lahidji was honored at a special reception on Friday at the University of Toronto for his work in promoting human rights in Iran. The tribute came during a conference on "Intellectual Othering and the Baha'i Question in Iran," held 1-3 July 2011. Dr. Lahidji is among the most well-known Iranian lawyers in international circles and is the author of numerous books and articles on human rights. "If other people's rights are violated, you have to defend them too. This is the struggle of every single one of us," Dr. Lahidji told the conference.
