History is worth protecting, preserving and restoring on the premise that it is! If we were ever to fool ourselves into believing that we could lose some of our past without damaging our collective humanity we might soon wake up strangers into our own backyard. Let’s just hope that it does not get to that.
Let’s just hope that organization such as the Baqee in the United States will commend enough traction to rally both public and international to their cause, since their cause is that of our collective right to our collective History, regardless of creed, ethnicity or social status.
From the looks of it, the Baqee’s efforts of late to speak against the poison of religious and cultural exclusionism – such as that expressed by Wahhabi clerics in Saudi Arabia, prompted new efforts to be spent towards the architecture of a global conservation effort.
