Ismailis of Dizbad, Iran

Dizbad Watan e Mast – if you look at the Dizbad History in the CA&CC Website, you can learn somethings about the History of Nasir Khosraw School in Dizbad.

In the 1930s, on an instruction from the Imam, the Nizari villages of Khorasan got their first schools. The very first of them appeared in 1932 in Dizbad and was called after Nasir Khusraw, venerated by the Khorasan Ismailites.

Local communities paid for the schools—on an order from Aga Khan III. 80 percent of collected taxes went to school building and education.
