President of Religious Affairs Mehmet Görmez visited the city of Ağrı to attend various programs.
Görmez made a statement to the journalists during his visit to the Governor of Ağrı Musa Işın.
In his speech Görmez reminded that this years’ theme of the Holy Birth Week was “The Prophet and Safe Society”, and stated the following:
We have seen that this region has suffered a great deal in terms of safety and has just begun to redeem itself. If we are a safe society we would not need a security society. For this reason we must first become a safe society. I hope for the establishment of an atmosphere where every individual in the society trusts one another so much so as to hand over the keys to their home.
"The Global Powers Declared Islam as the Enemy"
Görmez, in the program organized with the religious affairs officials in Ağrı said that, "Global powers declared Islam as the enemy and placed our land, our countries right at the heart of this declared enemy. We should know this about the world we are living in. Our belief is so strong that we feel responsible for replacing all the evil in the world with goodness. Good and evil are not equal. It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness since darkness will fade when there is light."
