A lot of unsourced info and POV. No any reliable sources while very serious things are written: f.e. "Armenia has effectively annexed the former region Red Kurdistan in todays". Is the "Kurdistanica" site reliable source for it? Off course, no! Also Red Kurdistan were annexed during Soviet period by Azerbaijan SSR. And the part about "Punik" with quotations without any references will be deleted! Who is the nationalist, who published that unknown paper (where and when it was?), is this paper so important to be represented here? We can find any self-maded papers with strange ideas, its not an enough reason to add them here! Andranikpasha 23:03, 26 September 2007 (UTC)

Andranik this is a fairly new article, and its understandable that it lacks reliable sources. I'm sure the creator, and why not us, can properly source this article. VartanM 04:59, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but anyways I think sentences like "The U.S. Department of State human rights report from 2004 contains information about the Yezidi Kurds as subjects of harassment in Armenia" or "The journal Report-Kurdistan (unreliable source-Andranikpasha) disclosed that about 20,000 Muslim Kurds were forced to leave their homes and flee Armenia." must be sourced at first or must be deleted...Andranikpasha 09:43, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Recent changes I madeEdit

I've dePOVd some of the sentences and have removed unsourced POV information and conspiracy theories such as Armenia is trying to play Yezidis against Kurds. Pocopocopocopoco 00:45, 28 September 2007 (UTC)


Gurgin, the source (soory but seems to be a propagandist one, is it even reliable?) you are added is irrelevant to the topic. Lachin, NKarabakh (or NKR) are out of borders of Armenia since 1921 while the article is about Kurds in Armenia. Andranikpasha (talk) 22:26, 12 January 2008 (UTC)


Should it be Yazidism in the infobox? Aren't Yazidis and Kurds treated separately? Maidyouneed (talk) 04:11, 10 August 2020 (UTC)

Merge with Yazidis in ArmeniaEdit

I propose that Kurds in Armenia and Yazidis in Armenia to be merged since the subject is the same. --Semsûrî (talk) 15:52, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
