Person of the Year 2009

On the Day of Tasu’a, when millions of Shi’ites in Iran and elsewhere commemorate the beginning of the martyrdom of the grandson of the Prophet Muhammad, Imam Husayn at Kerbala in 680 CE, The Times has announced that Neda Agha Soltan, only one martyr of the probably rigged Iranian presidential election, has been nominated Person of the Year 2009. It is a good choice and the timing is perfect.
