The terrorist organization PKK had believed that it could implement its founding basis which was “Foundation of Independent United Kurdistan” on the soil of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria, solely through armed actions and exploited Kurdish people to supply its need of armed personnel and gain the grassroots support. However after suffering huge casualty in 1994, the terrorist organization PKK realized that it could not accomplish its founding basis just through armed actions and attempted to shift its actions to field of politics through support from various European countries. In this context especially since 1995, the terrorist organization PKK began to employ Kurdish language as an effective means of propaganda to recruit armed personnel and also to gain political acquisition. The people who just wanted to watch programs in Kurdish language were exposed to propaganda of PKK because of MED TV's broadcastings - the first TV station in Kurdish language, started to broadcast from England on the May 15, 1995 - and thus terrorist organization PKK widened its potential substructure. Broadcasting in Kurdish has played a key part in this process.
