I am not Persian and I do not live in B.H., and I am not rich or buy my clothes at Bijan's, but WHAT THE HELL is up with all the disrespectful and untimely negative and rude comments? A self-made, successful, positive human being died suddenly from a stroke. I think that in the least, a little respect for the family is due. If not, how about no response at all.

May God bless his soul!

I've visited his shop only once, not to buy any thing but to watch those stupid show offs paying an exorbitant prices for his products.

I don't have any high regards for those who are just rich but don't care about the human miseries. I wonder if he had spent any money for the Iranian orphanages and or helping those forgotten eldery street sleepers?

friend of family 2    

anyone on here being negative and cruel at a time like this will face their day of judgement. Bijan is in Heaven now getting his wings that's for sure. He was a remarkable man and he loved his family. God rest his soul and be with his family and friends at a time like this. xoxo

We will remember Bijan, fondly and gratefully, as the true friend he was, most of all, for his incredible and genuine pride in being Iranian. It may seem as though he left Iran. But Iran never left him.
