Years ago, I watched a clip where a female student asks Rafsanjani, how would he describe himself? A Muslim-Iranian or An Iranian-Muslim??
His answer was as political as he could be, ' the order of words is not important! both statements will stay'
Regardless of who and what Rafsanjani and the female interviewer are, I find both question and answer a good way to describe the core values of mine in only two words!! whatever the order is !! However, these two words have no connections to each other, You can be Muslim but not Iranian or other way around it. In our little Iran, one would choose his/her religion, but Iranians don get to choose their nationalities and place of birth. While one of core value of any Iranian individual is his/her religion of Islam, Christianity, Judaism, bahaisim......nevertheless that very own religion has no meaning to the other core value of being an Iranian.
What is the description of being an Iranian?? No, this is not any more King Akbar's interview, this is my question for which I am not looking for an answer- if you like to answer it, Go Ahead. Perhaps, Iranians would describe themselves according to their own gender, ethnic back ground....and you name it but the religion carries no weight in being an Iranian.
few years ago, while visiting Iran, a friend and I went to watch soccer game between Persepolis and.....- can't remember the opposing squad!! dont care, I love Persepolis!!!- a 16-17 years old boy full of energy and stupidity told me ' Persepolis is the people's team of Iran who dont love Persepolis dont love Iran'
But seriously, there is some thing called common sens..................
You Know what?? I am not going to finish this blog!! A business math professor once told me ' if he knew how to describe the wind blowing in forest he could have got a couple of more degrees!!!'
No, this is not going to work!! I was thinking to write a blog develop a thesis which is to say the differences between us are not of the religious matters but rather the political situation in ME!!then support my thesis by making some comparison and example of other Iranian! but that could be interpreted as offensive, some thing that I am actually trying to avoid here!! yeah!! I dont know how wind blows in forest!!!
No,in this blog, I am trying to reach to Iranian-Bahais or Bahia-Iranians and tell them ;It is and must be their own choice of religion and believes. where I myself feel lost with my God how could I instruct religion to any body else??
I know nothing about religions or blowing wind, but I know 2+2=4
Dear Iranian_Bahais or Bahais_Iranians
please use common sens!!
