Kurdistan and the Kurds
Since the end of World War I, the Kurds have had no national rights, and their country Kurdistan was divided and occupied by Iran, Iraq, Turkey, Syria and former Soviet Union as an international colony, and the Kurds have been prosecuted, massacred, assimilated and denied the very basic human rights. Whether the Kurds are demanding full independence or a more limited autonomy or extension of electricity for their villages, in these States the Kurdish people face severe restrictions and harsh oppression. Here is some of what happened to western Kurdistan as an example to the rest of Kurdistan.
The author of this book, the scholar Jawad Mella is a known Kurdish politician. He was born into a Kurdish family thirsty for freedom and emancipation from injustice; an educated family of literature and science. He grew up within this honourable family and carried out political activities since young age so, he became accustomed to imprisonment and detentions.
Jawad Mella was the first who called for a formation of a Kurdistan government in exile and the Kurdistan National Congress in 1985 working to achieve the independence for Kurdistan, that elementary right that does not need any evidence or proof.
