SNE, Iranian Kurdistan,— During the four-year presidential term of Iranian president Hassan Rouhani, on average, one Kurdish citizen has been executed in every five day or almost seven Kurdish citizens have been executed monthly.

According to the statistics registered in the Statistic Center of Hengaw, 328 Kurdish citizens have been executed in the Iranian prisons mostly in the Urmia Prison and Karaj Prison from May 2012 till May 2017.

Based on the statistics, 21 of them were women and 7 of them were Kurdish political prisoners.

During this period, the regime’s Judiciary has sentenced 32 Kurdish citizens to death in charge of political or religious activities.

10 Kurdish citizens arrested per week in the Rouhani’s term

Hundreds of Kurdish citizens have been arrested during the Ruhani’s four-year term.

Most of them have been sentenced heavily.

According to the statistics registered in the Statistic Center of Hengaw, at all 2020 Kurdish citizens have been arrested by the Iranian security organizations from May 2012 till May 2017.

Based on the statistics, all of them have been arrested in accusation of conducting political or religious activities.

400 of them have been imprisoned.

According to the statistics, on average, more than one person has been arrested per day.

Ever since its emergence in 1979 the Islamic regime imposed discriminatory rules and laws against the Kurds in all social, political and economic fields.

Iran’s Kurdish minority live mainly in the west and north-west of the country.

They experience discrimination in the enjoyment of their religious, economic and cultural rights.

Parents are banned from registering their babies with certain Kurdish names, and religious minorities that are mainly or partially Kurdish are targeted by measures designed to stigmatize and isolate them.

Kurds are also discriminated against in their access to employment, adequate housing and political rights, and so suffer entrenched poverty, which has further marginalized them.

Kurdish human rights defenders, community activists, and journalists often face arbitrary arrest and prosecution.

Others – including some political activists – suffer torture, grossly unfair trials before Revolutionary Courts and, in some cases, the death penalty.

Millions of Iranians joined long queues to vote on Friday, an early sign of strong turnout in an unexpectedly tight presidential election that could determine the future of the country’s nascent emergence from international isolation.
