At that time, Sultan Abdul Hamid became suspicious, and Abdul Razzaq managed to sneak to Tbilisi, hoping to reach Yerevan from there. His attempt failed and he was forced to move to England, where he established contacts with Kurdish and Armenian organizations.
Years later, the Ottoman Sultan was able to bring Abdul Razzaq back to Istanbul thanks to his father Najib Pasha and make him the head of the court. In 1906, he was accused of murdering the Turkish chief of security, Rizwan Pasha, and deported to Tripoli.
He was sentenced to be executed several times, but his death sentence was not carried out under pressure from the public and the Russian consulate.
Abdul Razzaq spent four years abroad. He was not covered by the 1908 amnesty. He was allowed to return to Istanbul in mid-February 1910, when he decided to flee Turkey secretly to Yerevan. From that year until 1913, he continued his political activities and established a strong relationship with Smail Khan Samko.
In 1913, he founded a Kurdish association called Gikhandi in Khui, which was joined by many famous Kurdish personalities. The goals of this association were to open schools and publish Kurdish magazines and publications. To promote this association, Abdul Razzaq Badr Khan went to St. Petersburg and met with senior officials of the Tsarist government. The most important aspect of Abdul Razzaq's movement at that time was to oppose the massacre of Armenians.
In 1918, the Russian authorities arrested him and quickly executed him.
