Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Open Parsijoo Project

Mirmohammadi Meybodi, head of the University of Yazd, has announced that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will inaugurate the Parsijoo project which is aimed to eliminate Google domination in Persian web by providing searching facilities to its users.

The project is currently working in pilot phase and it has been financed by the IT ministry of Iran. The University of Yazd in cooperation with other prominent universities in the country has developed the Parsijoo search engine.

“Having a consistent connection to information is a top priority in today’s world. Russia has launched its own search engine and its people can use the engine even in emergency circumstances to obtain the latest stories. By starting the Parsijoo search engine, Iranians can use the searching services if Google decides to ban Iranian clients from using its services.” Mirmohammadi Meybodi said about the indigenous search engine.

Meybodi also asked for a great support from the government. “Currently we have more than 120 million pages indexed in our system. We can improve this number if the government provides the necessary infrastructures such as servers and the needed bandwidth for us.”

In the recent years, the government of Islamic Republic of Iran has invested on national projects to encourage people to use local services instead of foreign based ones offered by American and European countries.
