The teacher in the Department of Kurdish Language and Literature at the University of Kobani, Aras Hesso, spoke to ANHA agency on the occasion of the Kurdish Language Day, which falls on May 15 of each year, and said: “Those who are interested in this language should pay more attention to their language to develop it further.”

Hesso referred to the attempts of the occupiers of Kurdistan to obliterate the Kurdish language with their authoritarian policies and impose the Arabic, Persian and Turkish languages on the Kurdish people. He said: “Our ancestors preserved the language by approximately 80 percent.”

Hesso added: “The Rojava Revolution can be considered a revolution for women and youth, and a revolution for the language. Our universities, institutes, and schools teach in the Kurdish language, and this in itself is a historical step.”

At the conclusion of his speech, the teacher Aras Hesso, congratulated the Kurdish people on Kurdish Language Day, and said: “We must revive our language more, and all linguists must pay attention to their language.”
