Under the article 15 of the Iranian Constitution, the official language is Persian. The same article stipulates that the use of regional and tribal languages is allowed in addition to Persian, in the press and mass media, as well as in schools. However, the mention of regional languages is only a façade, since the Kurdish and other national minorities’ language is not taught in schools, the national minorities newspapers are regularly closed down and the journalists arrested.

Light lunch will be served
