During the that time Ottoman Empire divided kind of region. Bediiuzzaman Said i Nursi Hz. was living south east Turkey in that time and they call that region Kurdistan. Reason why they call him like that. I believe he doesnt believe nationalty, he only believe in Islam. I think he wants that all Muslims will be together and combine. Such as Hz. Muhammed (S.A.V.) said " All Muslim are brothers"...
