Internet is amazing in that it's made research very easy. Admittedly there is a lot of rubbish but you have to look for the diamond in the rough. We are very lucky to have the pick of Persian literature on the net.The one glaring and undeniable fact is that despite of and in spite of so much Arabic entering the language, from Saadi, Hafez to Molavi to modern day, the learned ones never referred to our language as Farsi other than enemies of all Iranian nations and Parsi speakers (present day Iranians, Afghans, Tajiks etc.), why else would you insist on a Tazi term or change Pars to Fars? One point made is that these are ancient texts but that is not true, The 5 Masters of Persian Grammar written in modern times never referred to the language as Farsi. In reality these feeble reasons do not excuse speaking or writing incorrectly.
Hear it from Molavi:
مسلمانان مسلمانان زبان پارسی گویم
......زین قند پارسی که به
The insistence on Fars or Farsi is either out of ignorance which can be forgiven as you cannot blame in the ignoramus, or in the case of those who clearly don't belong to the former group and are capable of assessing the damage they inflict. leads one to ponder about their motives.
It seems we are doomed to repeat our mistakes as it's all been said before. Isn't it just amazing that Saadi in his introduction to his Golestan, came up with this line amongst all the use he made of Arabic within the text to show off his mastery.
It seem to me it is THE SAME struggle over and over again throughout our history. Beofre you become too 'gheirati' and reply, ponder why (1) he used the term Pars and (2) was everything said in disguise? Then you may understand the essence of the Iranian struggle throughout history. The only difference is that the children of the Internet don’t have to disguise what they need to say but can say it openly or need the help of any Americans to know their culture, so it’s Parsi, NOT Farsi STUPID!
پارس را غم از آسيب دهر نيست
تا بر سرش بود چو تويی سايه خدا
