Dr. Mir Baiz Khan delves deep into the historical tradition of Navroz, an occasion that the Fatimid Imam-Caliphs recognized as an official public festival of great joy and revelries. It is a national festival in Iran and is celebrated with joy and festivities by communities in Afghanistan, throughout Central Asia, and in South Asia. Though inherited through Zoroastrian Persia, it is the only festival that is not confined to a single religious group. Presented by ITREB Canada.
