Assuming that the bit about Darius III's family isn't Hellenic propaganda aimed at legitimising Alexander in the sources, and assuming that Zoroastrian women "left Persian men" but that Zoroastrian men did not "leave Persian women". One reason why the Parsi community has been declining in numbers is that both men and women are marrying outside their faith. But in an attempt at compensating for your obvious Punjabi inferiority complex and healing your wounded Punjabi ego, you tend to look at certain issues from the perspective the suits your agenda. You try to hit a Persian nerve, but the more you try, the more lame you become.Zoroastrian women married Indian men willingly and left Persian men just like Darius own mother and wife loved Alexander more then any Persian male. Nice one.
We ruled your lands more than once. Remind me what our great leader Nader Shah did when he invaded your country? You don't want to read about what we Persians did to your people when the great Nader led us to your capital, that would really hurt. But what Nader Shah did to India was not something really extraordinary, since we Persians curbed stomped your people whenever we encountered them.Persian never really ruled the small part of India lol. There were many kingdoms fighting eachother there. Satraps and all. The Persians were chased away quickly,by the Punjabis.
How many empires did we Iranians have throughout our history? Last time I checked, it was more than 10. Alexander destroyed only one of them, and we returned even stronger. On the other hand, how many empires did you Punjabis have? Or a more apt question would be how long were your people suffering under foreign boots.Afterwards ofcourse Alexander taught you guys a nice lesson you never recovered from. Even Alexander didn't go beyond the utter northwestern part of India.
One could basically say Persia was destroyed by the Greeks, leaving behind nothing but chaos. Karma, certainly.
