Swiss deputies present motion in parliament for Kurdish teacher Zara Muhammedî
The fact that teacher Zara Muhammedî was imprisoned for 5 years on the pretext that she "threatened national security" for teaching Kurdish to a group of students in Sine was brought to the agenda of the Swiss Federal Parliament.
The five-year prison sentence handed down by the Iranian state to Zara Muhammedi, a teacher who taught Kurdish to a group of students in the city of Sine, on the grounds that she was "threatening national security" was brought to the agenda of the Swiss Federal Parliament.
A motion submitted by the Socialist Party (SP / PS) Swiss Federal Parliament Geneva Deputy Fehlmann Rielle Laurance on behalf of the SP group, pointed out that the sentence given to Zara Muhammedi by Sine Court was actually the result of the discriminatory policies implemented by the Iranian regime against the Kurds and other peoples.
The motion called on the Swiss government to put pressure on the Iranian authorities to allow all ethnic minorities to receive education in their mother tongue, underlining that 4 official languages are spoken in Switzerland.
The motion said: "Zara Mohammadi was sentenced to five years in prison by a court in Sine for teaching Kurdish. The situation of this teacher is symbolic of the discriminatory policy implemented by the Iranian regime against the Kurdish minority (and other minorities).
Isn't Switzerland, with its four national languages, in a privileged position to pressure Iranian authorities to allow ethnic minorities to study in their own language?”
