The president of Islamic Azad University sent a message to the Aligarh Muslim University for the conference on Persian Language and Literature in the age of Akbar Shah Gourkani and the Safavid dynasty.

According to ISCA (Iran Student Correspondents Association) quoting IAU public relations, Dr. Hamid Mirzadeh first expressed his appreciation of the efforts of the Persian Research Center of Aligarh Muslim University in holding continuous conferences on literature, linguistics, and history.

He also thanked professor Zameer Uddin Shah, Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, and Professor Azar Midokht-Safavi, head of Presian Research Center of Aligarh for their effective contributions to providing favorable circumstances for Iranian and Indian philosophers and developing the relationship between these two countries. “This active relation demonstrates that these two nations share the same ancestry from the Achaemenid, Parthian, and Sasanian Empires and enjoyed amicable cultural, political, business, and artistic interactions.”

In this letter, Dr. Mirzadeh also pointed to the strong relation between the countries throughout history, to the point that Persian language became the second language of the Indian people during the Mongol Empire era under the Safavid Kings who then resided in India. He also cited the thousands of Persian manuscripts in Indian libraries, the rise of many famous poets such as Sa'ib Tabrizi, Naziri Nishapuri, Taleb Amoli, Hazin Lahiji as examples of the literary phenomena of the time.

The president of IAU gave word of the readiness of the university to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Persian Research Center of Aligarh Muslim University in order to exhange faculty and students and enhance the cooperation of codicologists with faculty members, allowing for further cultural and academic ties.
