relation with Izadi and Alavi[edit]

The relation with these sect/belives/religions should be add to the main article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 5.52.216.72 (talk) 12:40, 8 January 2014 (UTC)


Yarsan[edit]

Shouldn't this article be moved to the name it is most widely known under in the West? The Druze article isn't called "Ahl al-Tawhid" either. FunkMonk (talk) 15:11, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

The true source of this article[edit]

This article, except for its occasional mistakes, is simply copied from M.R. Izady's 1992 book, Kurds: a Concise Handbook, chapter on Religion. And yet, the author(s) makes NO MENTION whatsoever of the author and his work from which this article is taken near verbatim! Why would the Wikipedia allow for such a tongue-in-cheek plagiarism, is a unknown. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.244.22.233 (talk) 04:18, 4 May 2011 (UTC)

Copyright query[edit]

67.244.22.233 (talk)

I'm not sure what you meant by "tongue-in-cheek plagiarism" but, in all likelihood, not everyone has ready access to the book you mentioned (myself included). I did notice that kurdistanica.com had been used as a reference. Those URLs no longer work (which is another issue) but I did find "Cult of Angels", which is about this subject, and also names Kurds: a Concise Handbook as its source. However, I don't really see any copy-pasting from that web page; perhaps it is a different portion of the book? For now, at least, I have placed the {{cv-unsure}} template. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 15:53, 4 May 2011 (UTC)
I was looking at an earlier version of the article; the kurdistanica.com source had since been changed to an archived link. -- Gyrofrog (talk) 20:09, 5 May 2011 (UTC)

FGM and Yârsânism[edit]

"In 2010, WADI published a study on FGM in the Kurdish region of Iraq, which found that 72% of women and girls were circumcised. Two years later, a similar study was conducted in the province of Kirkuk with findings of 38% FGM prevalence giving evidence to the assumption that FGM was not only practiced by the Kurdish population but also existed in central Iraq. According to the research, FGM is most common among Sunni Muslims, but is also practiced by Schi'ites and Kakeys, while Christians and Yezidi don't seem to practice it in northern Iraq." http://en.wadi-online.de/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=70&Itemid=18 79.251.96.41 (talk) 16:52, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Metempsychosis?[edit]

I am no expert on this religion, but the term Metempsychosis usually refers to ancient Greek philosophy.

Why not just say reincarnation in this article? Why confuse people by using the term Metempsychosis -- unless there is actual basis for using this word? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.197.161.206 (talk) 09:25, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
