Farshad Amini’s brother: The false promise of studying abroad brought my brother to PJAK

The Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch has continued its ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes with Farshad Amini’s brother, another victim of PJAK’s policy of forced disappearance.

One of the constant approaches of militant groups such as PKK / PJAK is that after one or several years after the children are killed, they inform the families that their children have been killed and in most cases do not even inform their burial place.

According to most families, PJAK has often pressured them to talk NOT to the media about their children, so that they can continue to “violate the rights of Kurdish citizens” in the shadow of media silence.

Another point to consider is that the approach of militant groups such as PJAK in the use of children in war is contrary to their commitment under the Geneva Convention not to use children under the age of 18.

Perhaps the deception and abduction of Kurdish teenagers, youth and, of course, children, and then arming and using them for the purposes and interests of the leaders of militant groups such as PJAK and the PKK, is the only achievement and gift of those claiming to defend the rights of the Kurdish people.

In fact, this is a human rights violation that these groups are constantly insisting on.


The full text of the conversation is as follows:

Our family was financially weak and Farshad was able to rely on himself, study and go to the University of Tehran.

But since he became a member of a social network affiliated with PJAK, they have been deceiving Farshad by knowing his economic situation and problems, and of course his desire to continue his education. PJAK promises to attract Farshad to study at universities abroad, and for this purpose they offered him a very tempting – but deceptive – offer, including paying for his studies.

It is natural that a young person with Farshad’s conditions is deceived by this issue.

Therefore, Farshad also believes in the deception of their lies and after leaving the University of Tehran, he goes to Qandil Mountain and starts another path in his life, the end of which is unknown.

We ask for help from any agency and organization in Iran that is related to these issues to find out about Farshad’s fate.

** The Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch continues to pursue these individuals until a clear conclusion is reached about the unknown fate of Kurdish citizens trapped inside these militant groups. **
