Sati, which is unlike the modern moral standards and incompatible with the standards of the Abrahamic and Zoroastrian religions, is an old Hindu custom that has been practiced for many years and seems to have been abandoned nowadays. It is an official custom related to the sanctity of fire, the glory of love, Hinduism, and the result of Indian patriarchy and xenophobia. This study has tried to explain the cause and elements of its emergence. It also attempts to investigate why and how the Indian books (the sacred and historical ones) refer to this custom and then analyze the historical texts and literature in Iran with regards to poetry.
