Fact of the Day: Parsi

Zoroastrianism is one of the world's oldest religions and was once the majority religion in Persia (Iran) for centuries. After Muslims conquered Persia, the religion greatly declined. Many of the old faith left and settled in India becoming known as the Parsi (Persian) people. More recent settlers of the Zoroastrianism faith in India are known as the Irani people.
