Note:I'm not arguing or something, Americans say they understand what I'm saying, this is only for correcting some wrong opinions, not for blaming you or the others.Hope you understand me....... Hi people.I'm Iranian and I live in Iran.When I chat with people from other countries, I understand that they have totally wrong ideas about Iran.I just wrote this article to correct you. The first thing they accuse our government of, is that they don't let you be free.Actually, Iranians would be some of the most free people in the world, since thousands of millions of strict rules in other countries, don't even exist in Iran.Our goverment tried to not to let western cultures influence ours, by prohibiting videos and sattelites, but in Iran every single house has one sattelite. Sattelite channels have a serious influence on people, now the way they wear clothes sounds like western countries, only there are scarves that don't seem to be worn because we're Muslems.People wear fashionable scarves to make themselves more attractive and most part of their hair is out.They do whatever they wish to, and some of the things they do, don't fit our culture at all, however it's normal in Iran, since people have got used to such acts and behaviours.You really need to pay a visit to Iran and you'll be surprised seeing the difference between what you imagine and how the real Iran is! It's wonderful, believe me.The Iran you know, is related to at least 40 years ago.At present, everything's so great.Even at that time Iran was not a bad country either, but many things have changed so far. Some people think music is forbidden in Iran, but did you know that Iranian pop music has won the nobel prize in France?Iran's full of music and they're all current pop music.The best you've ever heard, and in case you're curious to hear some, e-mail me and I'll send you some. Some people think women don't have any rights in Iran! What would you tell me if I tell you that women are now overtaking Iran? They're treated very well, most of the times they're the winners in most cases: They get into the best universities, they get the best jobs, they've got rights that have made it difficult for men to marry them, because husbands seem to be under control of women and they have to buy them expensive things and treat them very well, otherwise women will have the right to divorce them, and then the their husbands have to pay them a great amount of money which most husbands cannot afford. (so, they can simply sit in the corner of prison! lol).Another funny thing: Your footage about stoning the women who have committed adultery.Have you ever asked yourself they relate to how many years ago?Just for your information, those are from Afghanistan which was once ruled by those freaks (Taliban).I find it difficult to make you understand that Iran, Iraq and Afghanistan are SEPERATE COUNTRIES! and thet we're Persian not Arab!And I find it even more difficult to make you understand that Iran is a normal country like any other countries in the world.There's nothing mysterious about it!(The media is very good at making good scary titles: BEHIND THE CLOSED DOORS!!! IRAN UNDERCOVER!!! This would be enough to scare people away! Iranians are much more educated,sophisticated, intelligent and open-minded than what you think!!! I'm sure you don't know that there are lots and lots of Iranian geniouses and scientists that are all under 25.You don't hear about their discoveries and inventions on TV. A small example is this 17 year old boy who's invented 72 amazing inventions that the biggest scientist haven't ever managed to.You don't know that Iranian students are winning gold and silver medals in different compotitions in the world all the time such as robots, biology,maths,physics,anything... Why don't your media talk about them? Some people think, Iran's a desert! Iran's a modern country with very beautiful nature and lots of historical places to visit.Please take a look at the following links and see if Iran looks like what you think or not! (Surely it doesn't!) This is a photo of Tehran: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/co... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/tehran... If you like you can visit these too, hope you like them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/image:hills... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/image:jhcfj... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/image:dariu... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/image:kish-... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/image:dariu... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/iran...

I am not sure your response is topical. However it is very interesting in itself. Anoop, sorry about taking this "off topic" conversation further. The Persia that many of us liked was epitomised by the grace of Empress Farah and the style of the late Shah. Your country is beautiful and the people are fantastic. I love the food, carpets, tea, art and even aspects of your Bah'ai faith and Zoroasterism. Iran does have a rich history and heritage. However, I feel that after the Shah was deposed, a government led by religious people has not presented Iran in a good light to the rest of the world. As a woman I completely disagree with religious freaks who would have my Iranian sisters cover their hair because it offends some Islamic principle, whether it is Shiite or Sunna, who cares. We have reports of women being harassed by these religious freaks for all sorts of imaginary non-compliance with fundamentalist Islamic dogma. There are other simple things like the occupation of the US embassy and butchering people and similar things that has made Iran an unfortunate outcast in the world. So, in summary though I have awesome respect for Persian culture, affection for the people of Persia, I think that the lack of moderation and respect the government of Iran shows its people, and in particular to women is to be universally condemned.
