It has become more apparent than ever that Kurds and Azerbaijanis must build an alliance to topple the mullahs’ regime in Iran. 

Diako Moradi, a Kurdish journalist and human rights activist based in Norway, stated: “Recently, areas where Kurds and Turks are living have turbulent days. From ethnic clashes in Naqadeh, to the burning of the statue of Master Hejar in Mahabad and the breaking of Sunni graves in Urmia. These events have created a panoramic view of fear and apprehension in the society, which unfortunately, the totalitarian currents are trying to polarize and atomize the society by using the extreme right and extremist nationalist ideas and totalitarianism with instrumentalist rationality.”

“West Azerbaijan, known as the rainbow of ethnicities and religions, is now a scene of conflict and the key word of peaceful coexistence is lost, and all this becomes more prominent when conflicts are transferred to cyberspace and some waves the riders are trying to take advantage of this situation to provoke the national and religious feelings of the people,” she said. 

“Those behind the mask of the so-called sympathizers and chanting false slogans against the other and in the background of their minds have long produced the “other” and now in the continuation of this bloody project of actual “anti-other” actions through violence to the border elimination has progressed and they are trying to bring about a moral collapse of society.”

“The forces of internal and external domination have pursued their policies at one time or another through the direct military and temporal presence of dictatorships or through influence between ethnicities and minorities and have sown the seeds of their policies in the region for the past 150 years,” Moradi noted. 

“They started their biggest invisible war today. But this war is not about wearing battle clothes and taking a stand behind the embankments and taking up arms. Today’s war is not a hardware war. The dissidents have left all the embankments and left the slaughter to the ethnic groups and are watching from afar themselves. Military, political, economic, bankruptcy, famine, displacement, unemployment, poverty, and new divisions are being irrigated, and new divisions are being irrigated for war, conflict, and killing.”

She cited recent events in West Azerbaijan province and its cities, “especially in Mahabad and Naqadeh, with the second version of the bloody conspiracies of the spring of 20 April 1979 in Naqda and the massacres of Qarna, Golvan, MohammadShah, Qalatan, Qotur, Bayzabad and Haushar region in the 1980.”

Nonviolent movements have the necessary discourse infrastructure to counter this war, but they must be genuinely and comprehensively supported.

“As I mentioned, in Mahabad, the statue of Master Hejar is set on fire, or several people are killed in a clash in Naqada. Each of these becomes a spark, and the vulgar currents of thought blow over it to create a pervasive fire,” Moradi emphasized.  “Historical experiences and the bitter events of the contemporary era have made both Azeri and Kurdish nations distrustful of each other… today political suspects try to reproduce the context of mass killings and genocide, either directly by agents or through regional governments. The story is not about two or three incidents. Rather, it is an inaccurate, large, and planned program by governments and their dependents.”

“After four decades of Islamic regime establishment in Iran, it has tried to show all human rights activities of minorities especially Kurds and Azeris as separatist actis and to unite other people especially Persians against them,” Moradi concluded. 

“Kurds and Azeris had been living in some areas of Iran for centuries and had always been some kind of peace and compatibility, but Islamic regime of Mullahs tries to divide them, to suppress them under national security slogans. Azeris and Kurds know well that if they want to make a powerful force against regime, they have to know each other better, to understand that the power is in unity, they have many common aspects and goals and they have a common enemy named Mullahs, they are not enemies of each other although they may have some differences, but they can solve them by dialogue and negotiation.”
