Reply April 15, 2019 xxx xxx To those making irrelevant comments on India, it's sad that you don't know that Persian culture is imbibed within our Hindi/Urdu and food at large. We have genetic ties to the Persians (well ,not all but around 15-20% of Indians have some strains of Persian DNA in us and that translates to around 270 million people in India alone with some Persianic gene markers though in huge overlapping of other race and multi-ethnic admixture.) Don't simply spread hate. We love Israel just as much as we love Iranians. We are very balanced.

Reply April 15, 2019 Delaram Salmassi I think they deleted my comment. Again BCC is the enemy nr. 1 of all Aryan/Iranian Peoples! They try to split up Iran into states and pieces and they try to split up what was apart of The first Persian empire and they try to split up Kurdistan and many other parts of The first Persian empire into pieces and states and they wish to steal the history of The first Persian empire and the history of Iran in Russia and Europe and they wish to split up the Aryan Peoples and they even say Slavic Peoples are from the Iranian tribes but I prefer to call them Indo – European! Again I don't mind if The first Persian empire became Byzantin or Russian or Egyptian or Assyrian or Anatolian or Albanian ect. Reply April 15, 2019 hardyharhar yo Hello to all Persians around the world. From Iran to Afghanistan and Tajikistan etc .. Reply April 15, 2019 Gurkhani Zoroastrian new year rather than Persian, I say that since most of the people who celebrate aren’t Persian Reply April 15, 2019 Reply Cancel reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
