Do you know Mahmut Alinak?
If I strolled down a street in Hawler, Kurdistan, and asked people that very question, most would stare at me blankly and say, “Never heard of him.”
One or two might finally venture: “Isn’t he the guy who was locked up in Turkey with people like Leyla Zana, Hatip Dicle, Ahmet Turk and others?”
Yep, that would be a correct answer.
