Tajikestan, Fotos by Yousef My Azari friend

The persian King- Samanid

Tajikestan is not only a country that had not had political borders with Iran in the past, but also we have a same cultural point of views with each other now. Although there are no more political borders between us, but we should remind that having the same borders has no meaning for us. Those who read and searched in history know that the identity of Tajikistan is derived from the very big and important Iranian identity. Our identity is not differed from our past and history.
For better recognizing Tajikistan and its relation with our country Iran, we should return back to the past, to the vast and vital cultural region that performed the history of humanity. History and identity of Iran is a part of human identity. If we overview the world o the third millennium, we can see the great culture of “Chinese Culture” in the far east of Asia that dominated all over there. In the ancient time, the Greater Iran had the same borders with China in the east part with a vast area of thousands square Kmeters to the west, where the culture of the greater Iran met the Helenist culture that we know this culture is named Greek Culture now, and in those days cities had their independent rules like an exclusive country and nation, and then the Romance culture replaced them. The southwest borders of Iran met with the Great Egyptian Culture; so for hundreds years Egypt was parts of the Great Iran and its culture. Therefore as an Iranian and lover of Iran and its culture and civilization, I pay more attention to this field and while I studied more and more I discovered many new things and points about it.
We discussed about a culture that spread from China in the east to Rome, in the west of Iranian civilization. If you review the archive of this Fotopage, you’ll be notice that we showed a lot of photos about this strategic area. Some parts of northern borders of Iran met with the Current Dagestan Republic of Russian Federation. I refer you to the Darband Castle, the reminder of those days.sasanid era
The west borders of Iran are also vital and remarkable; Kurdistan and its culture is part of Iranian Civilization and culture. It’s better to say that, they are one of the first settlers of Iran; their language, culture, norms, customs, music, etc. influenced and influenced by Iran. We can find the evidence of this history at the heart of Kurdistan Mountains. Near Kermanshah, the evidence of my saying is engraved on the mountains for ever. On the Bistoon inscription all of the details about parts of this land “the Greater Iran” were mentioned.
We return back to East. The Borders of China, particularly the people of Tajikestan.Tajikestan was the east end of the Greater Iran. But nowadays there is just a very small country that remains from the past and unfortunately its main cities like Samarqand and Boukhara that seemed never depart from, are not belong to it. In this region, that was called the Great Khourasan in the past, the Iranian culture was maintained; many Iranian poets and scientists that are our honor and we memorize their poems in our schools, were buried in this Land (Tajikestan). When Arabs occupied Iran and forced Iranian to speak in Arabic language, the people of this region, the people of east Iran (Tajik people) protected and maintained Persian Language and by establishing some Iranian dynasty like “Samanid Dynasty” in order to bring the Iranian identity to life. It was due to their attempts that we can speak Persian now.
At the United of Soviet Socialist, many tried to dispossessed and deprived the Tajik identity as one of the Persian tribe and nation in an ancient time. Up to 19th century, this part of USSR had a very deep relation with its origin, the Greater Iran; but Russians with cooperation of the Great Britain separated and departed this land ( Tajikestan ) and other main parts of Iran from its homeland. They feared and scared about Iranian culture and they did not stand it; so by their plans, they tried to departed Iran and the people of Iran. But they forgot that the heart of Iranian people beat at the same time for each other for ever.
When my friend, Yousef, talked about his trip to Tajikestan, he said: “when they identified my nationality as an Iranian, they treated very warmly and kindly with me.” He was at their parties and saw how they enjoyed Persian songs. They asked him about the feeling of the people of Iran about Tajik people. Physically they are far from us, but they are our historical compatriots.
Among the photos I saw the shots of “central cinema” of Doushambe City, that showed Itanian film, I remembered a few years ago, I read an article on Internet about a Tajik writer that quoted from 1978.
“The Iranian movie that was completed and showed before the Revolution of Iran in 1978 and was named “Along the Night. When I was informed that after a long time, for the first time, the central cinema of Doushambe showed an Iranian movie during the governing of Communist Autocracy of Soviet Union, I rushed to see it. When I saw it for the first time, I was confused; I returned back and saw if for 4 times that day. It was very amazing for me, it was wonderful. I imagined myself as a person who was walking along the Tehran streets instead of Dushanbe streets. At that moment, I felt love in Iran and I felt it as a departed part of my sole. I felt I was on the sky and connected myself to the main origin and identity. But reality was something else, I was born in Soviet union.”
If they separated us, they never will be successful about departing us from our origin. Iranian civilization is the honor of other tribes; unfortunately we were separated from our origin, civilization and compatriots. I have a complaint about the politicians of the system who were caused it. A famous and remarkable poet of Iran, who was burnt at one part of this holy land. Azarbaijan that is unseperatable parts of Iran, the Great Shahriyar on one of his interview that was recorded on the cassette said that: “the enemies of Iran are trying to balkanize or depart Iran. We should think of the realities about Iran which its border continued from China up to Rome Sea (Mediterranean Sea), we as Iranian should protect and maintain our holy land for ever. I proudly honored our nationality and homeland that humanity and kindness is its essential and main principles of our country. I belong to the country with lots of historical, documentary and researchable places. For example Persepolis is just a historical and ancient work that shows the hidden reality and fact about Iran. I refer you to the Appadana Palace at Persepolis, where many remarkable relieves were engraved at the eastern stairs. By passing 2500 years, they are still readable, in order to show the world that we are her (as a young Iranian in this country). At none of the persepolis relieves, you can find no person who was kneed, all of Iranian Nations and tribes had a same value and respect with each other and other parts. There is no priority on the people. In the Greater Iran not only Slavery was not popular or exists, but also in the Persepolis archaeological excavations, archaeologists found some tables that the amount of payments people of those times. Whether men or women, earned were engraved on them, Also there was no sign of nudity (nakedness) or licentiousness in our relieves.
This is my identity as Iranian. Being Iranian means all of these feature, nations, tribes, customs, and norms of all Kurdish, Azari, Lour, Barouches, etc together. My friends and I believe that Tajik people are belonging to us and we belong to them, even they don’t live in the same country with the same name.
The message of Iranian people, not only in the past, but also now is Peace and Friendship.
سرزمین سغد باستان که سرزمین کنونی تاجیکستان را در بر می‌گیرد، در زمان داريوش يکم به جزئی از امپراتوری هخامنشی تبديل شد.
