Student Y.B. (14) and five of his friends of the Aydin Anatolian Imam Hatip High school were interrogated by police and a court for listening to Kurdish music at school.
ERBIL, Kurdistan Region (Kurdistan24) – A teacher at a high school in the western Turkish city of Aydin reported six of his students to police for listening to Kurdish music and dancing, leading to their interrogation by police last week on the grounds of “disseminating terrorist propaganda.”
Fourteen-year-old student Y.B. and five of his friends at the Aydin Anatolian Imam Hatip High school were doing “govend,” a Kurdish dance, during a break when their school counselor walked on them and confiscated a flash drive they were using.
Imam Hatip schools in the constitutionally secular Turkey are state-funded Islamic religious institutions where future clerics and imams are trained.
