Parliament’s Presidency and committee give best wishes to Yazidis on Jamayi feast

The Presidency of the Kurdistan Parliament and the Endowments and Religious Affairs Committee on 6 October sent their best wishes to Yazidis for the Jamayi religious celebrations, in the following messages:

On the occasion of the Jamayi celebrations, we congratulate Yazidis in Kurdistan and around the whole world.

Yazidis are a key component of Kurdistan’s communities, and the peaceful coexistence of all ethnic and religious components of Kurdistan is a model for the region. The Yazidis are the most prominent community, and it is our duty to protect our successful peaceful inter-communal peaceful relations.

The Yazidis have always been persecuted and suffered for their Kurdish ethnicity and different religion.

The KRG and the Iraqi federal government must co-ordinate and make every effort to make reparations to Yazidis and help them return to their homes and properties in Shengal, by implementing the provisions of the Iraqi Constitution.
