still / picture for Grand Ayatollah Bajat Sandschani


In the holy city of Qom - the religious center of Iran, the streets are crowded with clerics. In a small backyard we find the office of Grand Ayatollah Bajat Sandschani. This is a place for education, marriages and discussions, nevertheless a meeting point where conflicts based on different views within the religion turn unmistakably visible.
