Kosovo bans 'Kurdish music night', Turkey praises decision
The event was supposed to take place in Pristina, last Friday but the Kosovo prosecutor stopped it from happening.

Organised by Kosovo's "Sabota Social Centre", the music night was called "Freedom to Kurdistan". The police said the decision to halt the event was based on the fact that the organisers had not had 'proper permits', as BIRN reports. Moreover, "Police on Saturday said only that they had received information about an “unannounced activity" and also "they had information that unnamed individuals might try to cause an incident during the event 'that could result in consequences', is reported on the site.

Although there are many who doubt the reasons presented by the police, Turkey, through its media, hailed the decision that led to the ban, claiming that the event "aimed to spread propaganda in favour of terrorist organizations that are at war with Turkey" (...) and disseminate pro-PKK propaganda.../IBNA
