Yezidis: Phallic Snake and Cock Worshippers
The Yezidi - India connection
Murugan the Hindu god, the peacock is his vehicleThe following sources attribute an Indian connection to the Yezidi faith
1. YezidiTruth.org - A Humanitarian Organization in their website carrys an essay that mentions the Indian origin of the Yezidi faith and the
correspondence between the Hindu Murugan and Tawûsê Melek. Similarity between the icons such as Murugan’s other sacred symbols the snake and the
cock is deliberated on in detail.
(The Yezidi's are) Originally from India and therefore related to the Hindus
4. On the origin of Yezidis, Aziz Tamoyan the President of the National Union of Yezidi in Armenia writes,
The Yezidi emigrated from India to Afghanistan, and from Afghanistan into Iran and, lived in Iraq, and in Syria. In Iraq we started to call ourselves
5. An article written for the World Congress of Kurdish Studies, and carried by their website states
persistence in Kurdish (Yezidi) culture a mythology of Indo-Iranian origin, which may have been transmitted to Roman Mithraism via Kurdistan
The Yezidis (”yuh-ZEE-deez”) are a Kurdish sect living in the Nineveh province of modern-day Iraq. Their religion is pre-Islamic and
pre-Christian, yet it has absorbed certain qualities of both faiths. It has also absorbed elements of Zoroastrianism and Sufi mysticism. It is a
matter of debate among scholars as to just how old the Yezidi religion actually is, but it is possible (though not proven) that the people and their
faith are descended from ancient India. In any case, it may be that Yezidism is the original pagan religion of the Kurds.
7. One simple practice which is similar is that the Yezidi like the Hindus and Parsis of India hang a string of leaves across the doors of their
houses at the beginning of the new year.
