Hate speech against LGBTI by the Milli Irade Platformu

Hate speech against LGBTI by the Milli Irade Platformu, a pro-government platform of civil society organizations: “Our morality is our value. The people does not forgive those who pushes forward homosexual perversion onto the people as if it were a legitimate act. To legitimize the publicization of sin is an assassination against the values of this people. This initiative will fail yet again with The People’s Will.” (Scroll down for a list of organizations allegedly supporting this statement.)

100 years ago, following World War I, we not only lost our Global State that ruled over 3 continents, we also became subject to never ending attacks to our dreams, passions, excitements, ideals, hope, and most importantly, our self-esteem.

Our blessed walk, our dream and ideal to become the big Turkey, was continuously interrupted as much by external aggressors as it was by coups, by terror, by unnecessary debates that had us lose our energy, and by the probationary institutions the governed over liberties and the national will.

Turkey’s ill fate changed in the last 13 years. The boundaries, barriers, obstructions, and cruelties of a 100 years melted away in face of the people’s will.

It shall be known that;

We are the people of these lands that were kneaded with Islam. We are those who turned their path to that of Allah. We are a generation who works to raise the honor and dignity of humanity and who does not lose their hope in the face of all sorts of cruelty inflicted upon themselves because of their beliefs in their own home country.

The Imam Hatip Schools [a type of ultra-religious schooling system], which our people entrusted their children so that they can learn its belief and its religion, is our currency. The reopening of the Imam Hatip Schools and the ending of tyrannies of the coefficient[1] and the headscarf[2] are the manifestation of the national will. All sects who claim and promise to close down these schools are people who have become alienated from our values.

“The Directorate of Religious Affairs,” which provides religious services in our nation with expertise and merit, and its precious Chair are our currency. We witness a dyspepsia against the “[Directorate of] Religious Affairs” taking an active role in our nation and in the Muslim geographies. Those who are experiencing this dyspepsia in these lands kneaded by Islam should know that these ugly campaigns of yours and your alienated propaganda language reinforce our endurance for laying claim to this people’s religion and institutions.

Jerusalem, which is our first qibla [sic], is entrusted to us by [Caliph) Umar and Salah ad-din Ayyubi. We will continue to lay claim to what has been entrusted in us and to stand against Zionists, who claim Jerusalem to be a Jewish city, and against the alienated propaganda language, and against those who ridicule our qibla [sic] Kaaba.

Our morality is our value. The people does not forgive those who pushes forward homosexual perversion onto the people as if it were a legitimate act. To legitimize the publicization of sin is an assassination against the values of this people. This initiative will fail yet again with The People’s Will.

Syria is our brother, Iraq is our brother, as is Palestine, Gaza, Jerusalem, Arakan, East Turkistan, as well as the whole of  the Islamic Geography that is crying under tyranny. It is the requirement of our humanity and our belief to lay claim to anyone who rings our door asking for help, to any refugee who becomes our guest, and to any brother of ours who became a war victim.

“We are on the side of our values.”

We are where we need to be for the protection and proliferation of our religion, our currencies, our morality, our concepts, and our institutions.

Our elbow grease is for the New Turkey as much as is our benediction.

We know that the people and the ummah is along us in support of the rising New Turkey.

It is so announced respectfully to the public.
