Muslims in Iran, in 2020, are a minority!

Dr Pipes,

You might be interested in reading this study of "Iranians Attitudes Towards Religion, A 2020 Survey Report"

Notice that the number of Shi'a Muslims in Iran is only 32.2% and even if we add the number of Sunnis and Suffis in Iran, which is a total of 8.2%, the total number of Muslims in Iran is only 40.4%. This means that Muslims in Iran are really a minority and it seems to be happening so fast.

May be Firdawsi was correct in his epic poem: The Shahnemah, where he said, and I'm paraphrasing, there will always be the real Iran of the Shahenshah (The King of Kings)!

Here is the link to the survey by GAMAAN
