Zoroastrianism is growing rapidly among Kurds. 100000 Kurds living in South (Iraqi) Kurdistan are Zoroastrians, and Zoroastrianism has obtained official recognition from the KRG. Zoroastrianism is the fastest growing religion among Kurds.
Zoroastrianism is the native religion of the Iranic peoples, including the Kurds. Zoroastrianism replaced Iranic paganism during the rule of King Xerxes. Zoroastrianism is monolatrious, because Zoroastrians worship Ahura Mazda only. Ancient Zoroastrianism was dualist, but Zoroastrianism has moved towards monotheism. Zoroastrians believe in heaven and hell. In Zoroastrianism, you are judged according to your works, when you die and go to either heaven or hell.
Zoroastrianism declined due to Zoroastrians being persecuted by the Arab Caliphates. Many Zoroastrians fled to India. The Parsis are the descendants of those refugees. A small Zoroastrian community still exists in Iran. Currently, 70000 Parsis live in India, and 60000 Zoroastrians live in Iran.
The Parsis ban conversion to Zoroastrianism, but Kurdish and Iranian Zoroastrians accept conversion to Zoroastrianism. The Gathas (the texts written by Zarathustra) don't ban conversion to Zoroastrianism. But while formally allowing everybody to convert to Zoroastrianism regardless of ethnic origin, Zoroastrians has never tried to proselytize non-Iranic peoples. The Kurdish Zoroastrian community is only proselytizing Kurds.

Kurdistan is more likely to become majority Zoroastrian than to become a monarchy, because Zoroastrianism is growing rapidly in Kurdistan, while monarchism is insignificant in Kurdistan.
