ARA NEWS: Erbil, Kurdistan Region – Thousands of Kurds took to the streets on Thursday in the city of Mahabad, northwestern Iran, to protest against an Iranian officer who sexually harassed a Kurdish girl causing her to commit suicide, locals reported.

Local activists reported that the Kurdish girl, Farinaz Khosrwni, 23, who was working in Tara hotel in Mahabad, has committed suicide after an Iranian intelligence officer tried to rape her.

“She threw herself from the hotel’s balcony on the fourth floor, for fear of being captured by the Iranian officer,” the sources said. 

Activists on social networking sites have shared the news in the city and called for a campaign of mass protests across Mahabad. Thousands of Kurds protested in front of the hotel and burned it.

TEHRAN — Furious over the unexplained death of a chambermaid, ethnic Kurds in an Iranian provincial capital rioted on Thursday, apparently setting the fire that roared through the hotel where she had worked. Police officers used tear gas to disperse the crowds, according to news accounts, witnesses, and images posted on social media.

The anger, which appeared to have been smoldering for days in the city, Mahabad, spread over the mysterious circumstances surrounding the fate of the chambermaid, Farinaz Khosravani, 25, who on Monday plunged from a fourth-floor window of the city’s only four-star hotel, the Tara, Kurdish news media reported. Mahabad is the capital of West Azerbaijan Province, and its population is mostly Kurdish.

Nothing is as mortal to the morals of the Turkish politicians as the recognition of the Armenian Genocide of 1915. 

 

When many in the world were mourning and commemorating the centennial of the Armenian Genocide with sorrowful indignation, the Turkish government paraded its usual April 23 pompous celebration of National Sovereignty Day, an occasion exploited by Turkish politicians to fan the flames of patriotism amid crowds of flag-waving children who had gathered in front of Kemal Ataturk's Mausoleum. 

This ritual of glorification and veil of sanctity is the very ideological material that Turkey has used as a basis for its denial of the Armenian Genocide. Instead of accepting the bitter historical truth the conduct and bombastic rhetoric of Turkish politicians proves that they still consider themselves heirs to the Ottoman Empire, and act as if their predecessors were beyond such heinous acts.
