the true name of this region is Khorasan not Greater Khorasan . after fragmentation of Khorasan by Russia and Britain , and creation of Iran's Khorasan province and Khorasan country (Nowadays Afghanistan) people who try to Unify Khorasan use this term (Greater Khorasan) to differ it from new regions witch named khorasan.

"Khorasan is historical region lying in the northeast of Persian (IRAN) --This is beyond grotesque. Only about 30% of Khorasan, if not less, included Iran, yet to link it entirely to Iran is very funny. I guess the author of the text was an Iranian. Funny.. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Heley (talk • contribs) 21:24, 27 June 2013 (UTC)
I do not know when it comes to Persia you only talk about Iran,, so what about Afghanistan, Tajikistan , Uzbekestan,,etc,, at that time there was no Iran,,, so how can you say Persia is Iran ?? or Wikipedia is being wirtten by Iranians ? Khorasan was the pervious name of Afghanistan,, Great Khorasan was the whole area of Afghanistan,, I dont know why you are hiding the truth ? I hope you improve your informations on subjects you write,
These terms are not necessarily referencing religion. Sind/Hind/Hindu/Sindu from the point of view of western outsiders can reference the River Indus and its drainage basin. Suggesting a review here:
When the Arabs first arrived to the southern Hindu Kush to defeat the Zunbils, they recognized it as al-Hind (Sind), owing to the prevalence of Buddhists and Hindus (non-Zoroastrians) due to its cultural connection with Greater India.
