Jailed for singing in Kurdish

Turkey claims that she does not hate Kurds but hate terrorists. This for many Kurds in Turkey would not be a true statement as they experience otherwise in everyday life. Turkey has used anti-terror measures even before the establishment of PKK party. Since the establishment of new Turkey which born out of Ottman era where the Kurds promised to have their own land side by side Turks, all rules, laws, legal measures have undermined Kurdish existence. In the following documentary, Nudem Durak is a living example of such policies. Turkey has jailed the Kurdish singer, Nudem Durak, to ten years in jail for singing a Kurdish song.
