Iran’s anti Kur­dish poli­cies con­tinue

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

As part of the bans of the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran against its Kur­dish cit­i­zens, re­cently the Ira­nian Gov­ern­ment’s Is­lamic Is­sues Min­istry started to ban Kur­dish names in the coun­try’s south­ern prov­ince of Fars, where there is a Kur­dish com­mu­nity.

Ro­jha­lat Times, a Kur­dish news web­site, reporter on Thurs­day, June 18, 2013, that a res­i­dent of Fars Prov­ince has sub­mit­ted a re­quest to the prov­ince’s au­thor­i­ties to open a pub­lic place with the name of “Zheena”, the au­thor­i­ties, es­pe­cially the direc­torate of Is­lamic Is­sues have re­jected the re­quest ar­gu­ing that the name is a Kur­dish name and not an Ira­nian name.

This comes at a time when the Is­lamic Repub­lic of Iran and the Ira­nian Op­po­si­tion claim that Kurds are orig­i­nal Ira­nian cit­i­zens, but in re­al­ity Kur­dish names are still pro­hib­ited.
