Nasser Alizadeh’s father: PJAK took advantage of our family problems

Following the ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes, the Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch has arranged a conversation with the father of “Nasser Alizadeh”, another victim.

The young Nasser, who became a member of PJAK in 2014, was born in 1992 and was from a village in the surroundings of Khoy. .

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.

Perhaps the deception of Kurdish teenagers, youth and, of course, Kurdish 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 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:

“It was in 2014 that Nasser left us, even though he was married, and as we have come to conclude afterwards, the reason was that he had some problems with his wife.”

“These problems were such that neither he nor his wife spoke to us about them, and even because of these problems, his wife had gone to her father’s house in a rage.”

“Nasser was angry with all of us at that time and had even gone to Tabriz and Salmas for work for a while and had been weaving carpets in his aunt’s house for a month or two. He never studied after grade 1 of elementary school.”

“It was after these incidents that he went to Oshnaviyeh (Shno) with his cousin for work, and after a while we heard that he had joined the PKK from there.”

“In fact, Nasser was accompanied by two people on this journey, one was his cousin named “Taksim Darvishi” and the other was one of his friends named “Rahim Musalou”. He left for the border at his horse, carrying goods, and even called Rahim. He told him he was accompanied by some men he did not know and had perceived as (Iraqi Kurdish) border guards, and told them not to be worried.”

“Two years ago, they called us from Iraq and said ‘your son Nasser has died in Shengal’.”

Of course, we do not know whether Nasser worked with the PKK or anywhere else, but they published a picture of him on a Kurdish network, with his name spelled wrong, they said his name was Naji instead of Nasser…

The truth is that because we had no further knowledge of the PKK, we did not reach out to them nor follow them into Iraq. In fact, in that phone call, we could come and see his grave, but we said we could not leave the country and we have not left yet.


My son had a wife and children

“Today, Nasser’s son is in preschool, Nasser’s wife left for her father’s house after learning about her husband’s death in the news of one of these Kurdish networks, and after them contacting us from Iraq and announcing his death.”

“Nasser’s son is left behind without a father and mother. I am old and afraid I will not live to see my grandson grow up. My heart breaks every time the child asks about his parents. Sometimes I struggle to believe Nasser is really dead or might be alive still.”


Nasser Alizadeh, unknown 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 in militant groups. **
