Kurdish children spend somber Eid as fathers linger in Rojava prison

By Rudaw 14/9/2016
-

Rudaw met the families and children of a number of leaders of the Kurdish National Council (KNC) who have been in detention for almost a month in Rojava.

 

The children said they could not celebrate Eid in the absence of their fathers.

“We did not have a joyful Eid. My father and his friends have been detained. People’s fathers were home, but my father was not. If he were home we’d have an Eid,” said one young girl.

 

Another wished her father a happy Eid in his prison cell:

 

“Happy Eid to you, to our president and all four parts of Kurdistan. Our father was detained for nothing. They made our Eid unpleasant. We wanted our father to be with us on this day. Without him this is not a happy Eid. We all miss our father. He is not with us, but I say happy Eid to him and all those in jail.

 

“This was an unhappy Eid without my father. I want him out. I miss him.” cried a young girl.

KDP does also imprison political leaders.

Stop this petty bickering and cheap propaganda, that goes for both sides!

so so sweet children talking sweet kurdish. Turkey wants them to forget this lovely language in exchange for (bright) turkish employment future. It is sad that they are imprisoned by fellow kurds just because they differ in views.

This article doesn't provide any information other than they're in prison. Those kids are cute and I hope they're ok but there's much we don't know. Only a certain (kids) side of the story is underscored to garner sympathy. I don't mean to be harsh but rather provide some constructive feedback.

Pity they couldn't have done it for real when ISIS invaded instead of running away and leaving all their equipment behind for DAESH to use.
