The Parsis are believed to be descends of Zoroastrian Community from Greater Iran  who were compelled to relocate towards Asia to evade Muslim brutalities. The harassment  and persecution started as sparse outbreak of violence, which eventually led to mass murders and forced conversion.

Zoroastrian temples were burned, shrines were pulverized, and Mosques were constructed on the sites. Over the period, persecution of Zoroastrian community became widespread and quantity of adherents diminished dramatically. Toward the start of the tenth century Zoroastrians started leaving Iran, and gradually emigrated towards South Asia, living mainly in Sindh and Gujrat. The Parsis never surrendered their way of life, even though they had to abandon their homeland. Parsis, despite almost being an extinct community, are the wealthiest community in India with notable ones being members of Tata and Wadia’s.
