PKK terrorist organization, which announced its foundation purpose as “establishing the Independent United Kurdistan” on the lands of Turkey, Iran, Iraq and Syria, believed that it can accomplish this purpose only through armed action and used Kurdish as a mean of providing their armed personnel needs and obtaining the support of the regional population. In 1994, at the peak of terror incidents, PKK terrorist organization being unable to reach its intended results and suffering heavy casualties, understood that it cannot be successful by only armed action and moved its activities towards the political field with the support of some European countries. In this sense; PKK terrorist organization started using Kurdish, especially after 1995, as a propaganda tool for providing its manpower needs for terrorist activities and obtaining political gains with the help of Kurd Diaspora. In this period Kurdish mother tongue education demands have played an important role.
