Campaign Against Distortion of Iranian Architecture by Arabs

 

News Category: Cultural

 12 November 2005

 

 

Following the erroneous reference by United Nations introducing Yazd wind-towers (windcatchers) in buildings dating back to the Achaemenid era 2,500 years ago as Arabic, Cultural Heritage News agency (CHN) has launched a Persian language website; www.persianpetition.com to object to the distortion of history.


It pointed out that the Dubai-based Best Practices International Award to enhance the standard of lifestyle has misled the United Nations by introducing a significant feature of Persian architecture as that of the Arab heritage.


It called on the Iranians to log in the website and register their protest against the distortion of Persian architecture.
