UNESCO Registers Razi Commemoration

The 1,150th birth anniversary of Persian scholar, Mohammad ibn Zakariya Razi, has been registered on the list of UNESCO’s birth events to be observed in the 2016-2017 festivals.
Iran and Tajikistan had jointly recommended to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization to register Razi’s anniversary which was approved on the sidelines of its 38th General Conference in Paris, IRNA reported.
 Razi (854-925 AD), was a Persian polymath, physician, alchemist and chemist, philosopher and an important figure in the history of medicine. A comprehensive thinker, he made fundamental and enduring contributions to various fields of science, which he recorded in over 200 manuscripts, and is particularly remembered for numerous advances in medicine through his observations and discoveries.
The United Nations General Assembly designates a number of international days to mark important aspects of human life and history.
Additionally, at an earlier meeting with UNESCO’s Finance and Administrative Commission, acting Secretary General of the Iranian National UNESCO Commission Sa’dollah Nasiri Qeydari, said several of Iran’s proposals at the meeting were adopted for the years 2016 and 2017, including the commemoration of the 700th anniversary of Sheikh Mahmoud Shabestari’s book ‘Gulshan-e-Raz’ and the 1,050th anniversary of the famous Persian scientist Seyyed Morteza Alamolhoda.
 The proposals, along with propositions from other countries, were finalized in the 196th and 197th meetings of UNESCO’s Finance and Administrative Commission and were put on the General Conference agenda.
In Iran, August 27 is named after Razi as a tribute to his scientific achievements.
