Turkey’s Parliament Bans the Use of the Terms "Armenian Genocide", “Kurdistan,” and “Kurdish regions.”

Turkey’s Parliament
As part of a package of measures aimed to change internal procedural rules of the Turkish parliament, the legislature’s constitutional committee on Thursday approved a provision banning the use of the word “Armenian Genocide” from being used in legislative body.
Also banned are the terms “Kurdistan,” and “Kurdish regions.”

The bill, initiated by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) and the Nationalist Movement Party (MHP), stipulates a punishment for those lawmakers who break the rule by “insulting the history and common past of the Turkish people” that is using the term “Armenian Genocide” while speaking about the “events of 1915.”

Members of the People’s Democratic Party (HDP) walked out of parliament in protest.
