Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi expressed condolences on the demise anniversary of the ancient Iranian Prophet Zoroaster.
In a message on Wednesday, Qassemi offered condolences to Zoroastrians.
“I send my condolences to the kind Zoroastrians in Iran and the Parsis (members of the Zoroastrian community) in other countries on the death anniversary of Zoroaster,” he said in a message.
“Zoroaster was the founder of religion of monotheism in ancient Iran and harbinger and preacher of Good Thoughts, Good Words and Good Deeds. Zoroastrianism has still based its identity on promoting love and friendship among good humans and avoiding hatred and demonic behaviors,” Qassemi added, according to the Foreign Ministry’s website.
The spokesman said that the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic of Iran are the examples of a country and people that have always been able to raise the flag of coexistence and friendship among various religions on its monotheist lands.
“For this, Iran prides itself on enjoying the high culture in the current chaotic and volatile world,” he concluded.
