In the process of becoming a nation state, many societies have gone on to establish a common history. This situation is also used as a means of weakening for the states that contain various ethnic elements. The issue to be addressed in this study is the use of Kurdism as an instrument of abuse against Kurdish people through a forced fabricated history. The imperialist powers who recognized the Kurdish element within the Ottoman Empire, including their missionaries and consuls who carried out spying activities, planted the seeds of separation. One reason for the emergence of separatist Kurdish nationalism is the policies of the late Ottoman period and in the early Republican era. The imperialist powers who constantly use the national sentiments of Kurdish society for their own interests, wage proxy wars through Kurdish society, with the promises they make. The nationalist movement, which continues to be influential in the 21st century, has turned into an effort to picking a fictious war between fellow nations who have lived together for centuries.
