Stop the mockery: Patriotic group denounces widespread online ridicule of national hero

January 18, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

A patriotic initiative cherishing the memory of Armenian national hero Garegin Njdeh has issued a statement condemning the recent postings online ridiculing the great Armenian statesman, political thinker and fedayee based on the trailer of a movie about him.

The group called “Garegin Njdeh” describes it is a “cheap” campaign by anti-nationalists and reminds that it is due to Njdeh that Armenia has independent statehood today.

“It is baffling how a group of young Armenians can get pleasure out of mocking at the image of a film character [representing Njdeh], thereby giving a great present to our enemies,” said the group in the statement, referring to videos that have been appearing on YouTube and online social networking sites, in which different cartoon and other characters imitate a scene from the movie (where Njdeh’s character says in Russian “I am Garegin Njdeh”).
