BAHDINAN. Former Kurdish emirate in what is now the Kurmanjispeaking area under the sway of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in the northwestern part of Iraq. The area is still unofficially referred to as Bahdinan. With the hilltop city of Amadiya as its capital, Bahdinan lasted as a semi-independent emirate into the 1830s. The term “Bahdinan” comes from the eponymous Baha al-Din family, which originated from Shamdinan (now Turkicized as Semdinli) to the north in what is presently the Turkish province of Hakkari.

His brother, Djaladat, was elected the first president of Khoybun. Subsequently, Djaladat devoted himself to literary work and helped to develop a Kurdish alphabet in Latin characters. BAGHDAD PACT. Formally known as the Middle East Treaty Organization, this cold war, anti-Soviet alliance was created in 1955, with 18 • BAHDINAN Great Britain, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, and Pakistan as members. Although it was not an official member, the United States also, in effect, participated. The Pact’s significance for the Kurds was that it also implicitly obligated Iran, Iraq, and Turkey to cooperate on the Kurdish issue, as did the earlier Saadabad Treaty in 1937.

The other Baradust, called Sumay Baradust, is situated further to the north, between Targavar and Kotur, and has Cehrik Kala as its main town. The Bab (Sayyid Ali Muhammad of Shiraz) was imprisoned at Cehrik Kala before he was executed at Tabriz in 1850. Some claim that the Hasanwayhid Kurdish dynasty (959–1095) first established Baradust. The army of Shah Abbas the Great of Persia besieged Khan Yakdas, a Baradust mir, in the mountain fortress of Dimdim in 1609–10, an event that became famous in Kurdish folklore.
