Dear Arash, I beleive you are a Zartushti. Here we have lots of Zartoshtis who are of mixed religion but they are welcomed as true Zartushti. I also believe some few Zartushti preists are converting others, but at present this is done discreetly due to threats by the present Govt. in Iran. As for Tajiks, I know that the Iranian Govt.trying to gain influence presented the Tajik Govt. with copies of expensive Quran. This was rejected as Tajiks consider themselves Zartushtis so Iran had to give them a copy of Shahnameh and also that they contacted Parsis in India and USA.
