These are not gypsies but Pakistani Shia’s who regularly come to Iran to go on pilgrimage to the holy cities of Mashad or Qom… last year I was in hotel with Mashad and who floor was occupied by a group of them…

It is against arab traditions and values to let women and children to sit on the floor of this subway/bus while men stay seated. The men should give up their seats. Please reconsider this photo. I am arab and I wish iran peace and prosperity.

Abd al Aziz,
Arabs treats Gypsies like shit:
“Despite a deep-seated identification with Middle Eastern culture, the remaining two hundred families endure severe discrimination at the hands of Israelis and their Palestinian neighbours. Once lauded in Persian poetry as unparalleled entertainers, a series of cultural, political, and economic shifts have led the Dom to be regarded as despicable beggars. The shame of being a Gypsy is instilled at an early age when children enter school. Although the Dom consider themselves Palestinian, their non-Arab ethnicity elicits such intense abuse that nearly 60% of the Dom community has failed to complete elementary school.”

These are not gypsies. They look, as an above poster said, like pakistanis. I think you put a gypsy spin on it to get more attention.

I really hate this pic! Shame on the photographer for his lack of discretion and poor sense of judgment.
In spite of their bad circumstances, these people are trying to maintain a sense of dignity, and yet the photographer, who is clearly better off, has none! …to stand there and take this photo infront of a train-full of watching people! (look at the boy in front looking at other people).
Could you not notice the old man turning his head away in shame? and desperate look of hope on the mothers face? the confusion in the girl (left) face? what were they to do as you stood there above them taking a photograph of them with your fancy camera…cover their face with cloth?
do you feel more talented for humilitaing and degrading these people like this?… no sir, talent is being able to regognise the plight on the other end of the lense and acurately, and more inportantly, truthfully capture their story.
My heart breaks when i see this and feel ashamed for them just looking in on their situation.
