why our homeland is called iran and not farsestan

by hoomangolshan

I don't think many people appreciate the things reza khan did for his country.  iran was on the verge of disintegration when he took power.  the threat of the balkanization of iran had never been higher.  iran lacked a strong central goverment, and local strongmen called the shots in many part of iran.

 may you rest in peace reza khan !!  if it weren't for you, we would be called 'farsestani', rather than iranian !!
