With his role in all the historical events through the Kurdish liberation movement, the son of the immortal Mustafa Barzani, died of heart attack in Jan 31, 1987. With his death the KDP lost a man who put all his live for Kurdistan and the Kurdish people, his death left a vast vacuum within the role of KDP’s politburo and the Kurdish liberation movement, a vacuum which is difficult to fill, or rather we can say that this vacuum is impossible to fill in a short time.
