Mojdeh Gholami’s mother: Problems due to divorce caused my daughter to join PJAK 

Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch has continued its ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes with the “mother of Mojdeh Gholami”, a former PJAK member.

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

According to most families, PJAK has often pressured them NOT to talk 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 PKK / PJAK has long been arguing for child soldiers, but more importantly, these groups deceive and arm underage children and adolescents.

But the question is, what is the reason for the sudden announcement that these children were killed a few years after their death?

According to statistics released in recent years, “more than 50 percent of those killed” were child soldiers.

What makes these children quickly announce the names of those killed in the war by the PKK media after several months of membership?

What is hidden behind this news? Is the PKK trying to destroy the identities of children by announcing this news so that it can use them in its secret operations?

The full text of the conversation with “Mojdeh Gholami’s mother” is as follows:

Mojdeh and her daughter were very dependent on each other, and this caused mental problems in my daughter, after her divorce.

She told me several times that if you did not bring my daughter to me, I will either run away from home or commit suicide.

I remember that one day, she hugged her daughter’s clothes until nightfall, and when we were asleep at night, she tried to commit suicide by using a rope tied to a pipe, but fortunately we were able to break the rope and save her.

Mojdeh escaped the next day and when she left the house, she locked the door so that we could not follow her, so my son had to break the glass so that he could go after Mojdeh, but unfortunately she immediately poured the glass on my son and injured him.

We had not heard from Mojdeh for 11 months since she left the house, we went wherever we could, but we did not know where she was, we did not even think she was a member of a group or a party!

We were completely unaware all the time until one of our relatives living in Iraq called me and said that someone had called him and said that the good news was with them, and had asked him to let me know immediately. They had went after my daughter and because I could not believe it, they sent me a recorded voice of my daughter.

When I was sure, I decided to follow her. When I got there, we begged him to let me take my daughter back because her daughter was really very ill away from her mother, after which he had agreed to hand over my daughter, and do not stay here.

But I did not know at that moment why he said that ?! But later I found out that he had even been imprisoned over stealing one of their members, as he lives in a territory they control.

As soon as I brought my daughter home with me, I was relieved.

After her return, with the help of the judiciary, we were able to return her daughter to her mother. She is happy now, although she has been through a lot.

She was 14 years old when her father gave her hand in marriage, and joined and left PJAK just before her 18th birthday.
