Rebin Hardi after being beaten attacked.
Kurdistan region 'Iraq', — The well-known
Kurdish writer and opposition advisor, Rebin Hardi,
was arrested and
beaten by the
Kurdish security forces in Sulaimaniyah while they
were trying to quell the demonstrations against
Kurdistan government KRG and president Massoud
He was later released and wrote the following
statement on his facebook page in Kurdish:
“To be honest, the last thing I thought of, was that
one day I would be imprisoned by Kurds and be
tortured for no reason by people with cruelty of
this magnitude. In my lifetime,www.ekurd.netI
experienced this once, in 1982, during the
demonstrations against the Ba’th regime.
When they took me to the general command prison,
they were very respectful and I could feel that they
were upset because I was tortured. Some of them were
even shocked that I was arrested.
I salute those who were kind to me and I ask God to
forgive those who do not realize the extent of the
crime they are committing.
It became clear to me today how some cruel people
can easily tarnish the image of the good majority. I
was also confident that this type of rule is digging
its own grave.
While I thank all the friends from the General
Command’s prison, I tell them that the whip of
the man in the bus, who lashed me all the way to
the prison, hides all your kindness.
Being quiet about
cruelty of this magnitude is enough to tell us that
sooner or later they will go.
My request is that we
should not respond to cruelty with cruelty, violence
with violence. Our aim should not be switching
roles, us taking the place of this cruel man and him
taking our place.
Our aim should be creating a world away from
cruelty, humiliation, illegal arrest and torture.
This would not come about without a civilized and
