IRAN
1953

SUSTAINED progress toward the international enactment of calendar reform was reported at the Seventh Annual Meeting 15 January 1954 of The World Calendar Association, International, held in the International Building, New York City. Published highlights (JCR Vol. 24, April 1954) for IRAN:

Although the Moslem countries of the Middle East are in continual difficulty with the wandering lunar calendar which they adopted after the death of Mohammed, there have been few attempts to correct or revise it. In recent times, Iran is the only Moslem state where a revised calendar has actually been legislated. This was done about 30 years ago by Riza Shah Pahlevi, and his rather laborious revision is still the legal calendar of Iran. Some highly interesting discussions of this situation and its bearing on the current international movement are expected to take place in Tehran early in 1954, when Dr. Hashim Amir Ali of Osmania university (Hyderabad, India) will visit Iran. As a leading Moslem expert on calendar matters his advice will have an important bearing on the official attitude of the Iranian government. He is a supporter of The World Calendar, and regards its adoption as specially important to Moslem countries.
