Isn’t Ruben Gevorgyan Offended From The Nickname "Tsaghik"


April 1 2010

"Today in our political field there are many people who have
nicknames. Having a nickname is offensive or not?" asked Vardan
Harutyunyan to the member of the Republican Party of Armenia MP
Hovhannes Sahakyan.

H. Sahakyan answered that it is the person who decides he is offended
or not, "One of the authors of the law, Ruben Gevorgyan has mentioned
that when instead of his name his nickname is published in the
newspaper ("Tsaghik" (Flower) it’s not offensive."

According to the PM some people think that the usage of the nicknames
is offensive.

To the question of whether any other PM or a businessman
has expressed his point of view H. Sahakyan answered that he knows
only the point of view of R. Gevorgyan.

According to V. Harutyunyan there are people who are proud of their
nicknames: "Having nicknames is not a bad thing. And is it the fault
of the journalist, if anyone has a problem with his own nickname,"
he asked.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
