Dari (Persian) or Dari Persian is a name for the Persian language and in particular it is the term insisted on by Afghan authorities for the Persian used in Afghanistan. Dari is also known as Eastern Persian.
Some people do not consider the Persian spoken in Afghanistan to be a separate dialect. They consider it to be just Persian. Dari is used by certain scholars in Tajikistan and Iran, including Mahmoud Dowlatabadi, to refer to the Persian language. It is also believed by some that Dari Persian should not be called Afghanistani Persian, because it already existed centuries before the creation of Afghanistan, or the use of the word Afghanistani. Linguists prefer the terms Western Persian (Farsi) for the spoken Persian in Tehran, and Eastern Persian (Dari) for the Persian spoken in most of Afghanistan, eastern Iran & in Pakistan. The language name of Afghanistan was officially changed from Farsi to Dari due to political reasons in 1964.
