what is your problem DjDavis?? He is a very respectful man to all of us because of his talent! no matter how much they costs...its like when MJ passed away we were all upset and now we are sad that he is sick at the moment and needs our prayers! Beside no one talked about him as a "God" and whom represents our country!! why are you making stories ... he is an artist and a famous man in his very own way and we Love him for that!! You should really start loving people and change your opinions about people no matter where they are from or who they are.. unless if you are seeking for some attention... then I would feel deeply sorry for you!
Be strong Bijan.. we all pray for you <3

Don't Worry!
when he was alive was dead for many.He never helped to his compatriots.he didn't build 1 public library !he didn't build 1 public hospital ! he didn't build 1 Iranian's shelter .
so his name 'll bury with his body.

Bijan was a real gentleman, always kind. He always treated me as a real friend. He transended race, I never heard an unkind word from him. He was very proud of what and who he was. My symphony to the family that he loved so much. Good Bye my friend, you will be missed. Mauro Pappalardo
