VICTORIOUM AUT MORS
- Oct 27, 2019
Most Yazidis that I seen identify themselves with Abrahamic religions that surround there region. Yazidis reject the Indian origin or religious similarities with Hindus. some of them even deny there own Kurdish origin trying to claim they are some separate people group. I don’t believe there is any concerte religious or cultural links between them and us but there might be some small similarities with us coming through the Zoroastrian part of there religion like the worship of fire or Agni and like you said importance and worship of Peacock.
Also about mural with Indian lady lighting a peacock lamb the interesting thing is that I have seen it before long time ago in a history blog i don‘t remember the name of the person who posted it but i do remember what the person who posted it wrote about that mural in the Yazidi Temple He said it was mural of a famous Indian film actress that the local Yazidis had seen in one of the Indian movies and in the movie she was lighting Lamp with peacock head on it in a temple. Lady in the mural does have slight resemblance to famous Tamil and Bollywood actress Sridevi. she was famous in the 1970s and 1980s and that was also time when Bollywood or Indian cinema in general were pretty popular in the Middle East maybe some of the Yazidis might have seen one of her movies inspiring the mural.
I can’t prove what the guy wrote i added this part to the post because I found it interesting. logically it is very very hard for people like Yazidis who entirely located on mountainus regions of northern Iraq to know about culture, dress and religious festivals of person located in south India unless it through movies.
