Subject: Persian Gulf name must be used.
Dear Dr. Golbahar: Dr. Hojbari has brought to our attention that you are holding a conference at a University where the wrong term of Persian Gulf is used. When this University came into being in Bahrain, I personally wrote to its President, Vice Presidents and academic Deans. I have not heard anything from them up to now. We created a website to educate non-Iranians about the use of correct term of Persian Gulf. Our community expects more from Iranians especially those who teach or conduct research at academic institutions. We believe honesty and integrity are two important elements of academia which we must honor. On behalf of Persian Gulf Organization, I encourage you to promote the correct name of Persian Gulf. At this time, we do not wish to list your University or you as an abuser of our historical heritage in our website. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
