Islamist Leader not Optimistic About Future of Islamic Groups in Kurdistan

Source: Rudaw in English


Rudaw: How do you see the future of Islamic groups in Kurdistan?

Dilshad Garmiani: Considering their current circumstances, I am not optimistic about their future.

Rudaw: Do you think the Islamists will be able to hold power in Kurdistan in the near future?

Dilshad Garmiani: I believe that day is near only if the Islamists set aside their political agendas and dedicate their lives to their religious obligations. Give priority to Allah’s will. They must examine themselves and eradicate pride and hatred towards each other. They must pinpoint their scars and heal them. They need to unite and take advantage of the fact that many people are coming to Islam.

The three Islamic groups are not the only Islamic groups that exist in Kurdistan. The Salafist group has as many followers as independent Muslims. Some people are leaving the Islamic parties because they believe they are more dedicated to their political work than their religious obligations. I am also partly to blame in this respect. Islamists, especially religious leaders, must improve our behavior. We must be honest to our religion so that we will be a good example for our people. That will be our future, with Allah’s help.
