Abbas Ghadimi Gheidari, Reza Abdollahi
Abstract:   (712 Views)
The movement of Sheikh Obaidullah Shamzini (1297/1880) took place by the aim of forming an independent Kurdistan during Nasser al-Din Shah period. The main root of this movement, which made troubles for the Qajar government, lies in the tax pressures of the central government appointed rulers. This movement started from the origin of Sheikh Obaidullah, i.e. Ottoman Kurdistan. Although Sheikh Obaidullah movement rapidly covered a large part of Iran western regions, it quickly subsided. This study by analyzing data collected in the library and documentation method, seeks to answer the question of what internal factors led to the defeat of Sheikh Obaidullah's movement?
The results of this study show the heterogeny of Sheikh Obaidullah's coalition forces, including goals and motivations of participating in the movement, frequent killings and looting different areas by Sheikh and his forces, weak and uncertain alliance of tribal forces with Sheikh Obaidullah, lacking support of the Kurds in regions of South Kurdistan of this movement, lacking strategy and Sheikh's unawareness of international politic are among the most important internal factors in the defeat of Sheikh Obaidullah's movement.
Keywords: Azerbaijan, Economics of Qajar period, Social history Qajar period, Sheikh Obaidullah Shamzini, Kurdistan.
