Are there any non-Muslim Iranian members at AE?
 
I'm just curious as to where they live in the world, or if they live in Iran what is it like to live as a religious minority in Iran.

A lot of originals Iranians live in India. They are called the parsi people.

They came here to escape their prosecution & forced conversion to islam in mediveal time, when Islam invaded iran.

They are Zorastrian by religion, speak their own dialect of Gujarati. 

They form one of the most prosperous communities in India.

They are very rich people. Some of them are dollar billionaires in the Forbes list, while I doubt Iran has even a single person in this list.

Yazidi Kurds have a religion derived from Mithraism. And there are Zaroastrians in Iran also (about 25,000).
