Teymour Faraji’s mother: PJAK did not even tell us about my son’s death

Following the ongoing talks with the families of the victims of the PKK / PJAK crimes, the Human Rights Watch of Iran has arranged a conversation with the mother of “Teymour Faraji”, another victim.

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 NOT 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 full text of the conversation is as follows:

Timur was a self-made young man who had gone to Sulaymaniyah, Iraq, to ​​earn a living and was also studying at a university there.

My son was in constant contact with us from there, and of course he came to Iran once a month, asking how we were, and of course, taking care of me and his father.

After a while, there was no news about him again. We, who are old and disabled, did not know anyone or anywhere in that country (Iraq) to find out what happened.

This ignorance continued for several years until we heard from our fellow villagers that the news of Timur’s death in Turkey was published on the internet.

We didn’t even receive a call! We are old, and don’t have internet!

It is unfortunate that the PJAK group did not even contact us to inform us about the death of our son, and tell us where his burial place is.


** The Iranian Kurdistan Human Rights Watch continues to pursue the fates of these individuals until a clear conclusion is reached all Kurdish citizens trapped in militant groups. **
