Behzad had conflicts and problems with his mother and they did not get along somehow. According to his father, some of Behzad’s friends tricked him and took him to PJAK.
Behzad Mahmoudi was only 15 years old at that time and it can be said that he was a child. Of course, we should also add that after Behzad’s departure, his parents separated. Behzad worked with his friends at the border and as his father had heard, he had become a member of PJAK with those same friends. Of course, one of them named “Arman” returned to his village and home after three days. One of the constant approaches of militant groups such as PKK/PJAK is that after one or more years of the killing of their Iranian members, they inform the families that their children have been killed and in most cases they do not inform about their burial place.
According to most of the families, PJAK usually pressured them as to why they talked to the media about their children, so that they could continue “violating the rights of Kurdish citizens” in the shadow of media silence.
Even though his father has gone to Iraq and Qandil region twice to follow up on Behzad’s condition, he has not heard from his son for nearly seven years now. In the opinion of Behzad’s father, he spent useless money and went there both times, because they did not allow him to see his son, which is not human at all. In addition to Behzad, he has three other sons and of course a house in the village. If there is any news about Behzad and he knows where he is now, he will surely sell the house and everything he has and go after him. But now he has no news about his son and with these high prices and the economic situation and this father who is a worker, he does not know and cannot know where and how to follow up on his son’s condition.
