  4. With Dinshah Irani in New Iran
    Masani, Sir Rustom
    After the passage of over one thousand years since a group of Zarathushtis fled to India from Iran to escape forced conversion and religion persecution at the hands of the invading Arabs, Reza Shah Pahlavi, the founder of Modern Iran distinguished himself by being the first king of post-Islamic Iran to encourage the descendents of those Zartoshty refugees to return to Iran and help in its development.  A delegation of Parsis headed by the legendary Dinshah Irani traveled to Iran as a direct result of the invitation from Reza Shah.  This informative article reflects on observations from that trip.
