Qazi Muhammad 1901- 31.03.1946 3:10 AM

Arguably the one of greatest Kurdish leader of the 20th century, Qazi Muhammed  was the epitomy of the word "Kurdeyeti". Alocal Islamic Judge (hence the name Qazi), who became the Persident of the Kurdish Republic of Mahabad in 1945-1946, this martyr chose to stand by his homeland when Iranian troops invaded the republic. Thus, Qazi Muhammed was treacherously hanged by the Shah of Iran. For the Iranians he was a rebel, but for Kurds  he was the hero and founder of modern Kurdish republic (Mahabad).
