"NECİP FAZIL KISAKÜREK SYMPOSIUM ON THE 40TH ANNIVERSARY OF HIS DEATH" WAS HELD IN ERZURUMMinister of National Education Yusuf Tekin attended the "Necip Fazıl Kısakürek Symposium on the 40th Anniversary of His Death", themed "Education and Youth", organized by Cihannüma Solidarity and Cooperation Association at Atatürk University Nene Hatun Cultural Center in Erzurum.
Making a speech at the "Necip Fazıl Kısakürek Symposium on the 40th Anniversary of his Death", themed "Education and Youth" organized by Cihannüma Solidarity and Cooperation Association at Atatürk University Nene Hatun Cultural Center in Erzurum, Minister Tekin said that Israel's atrocities against Palestine have been on the agenda at regular intervals since his childhood.
Criticizing the indifferent attitude of international organizations towards oppression, Tekin stated that the issues they were disturbed about somehow found their counterparts in international human rights texts. Underlining that they were victimized every time, Minister Tekin stated that the organizations responsible for protecting world peace and the rights of the world's nations will probably legitimize Israel's attacks by citing these texts after Israel reaches its intended goals and will find Israel's achievements reasonable and logical. Expressing that he is tired of this order, Minister Tekin said that he adopted President Erdoğan's 'The world is bigger than five.' motto as a very different and valuable expression. Minister Tekin called on the world to discuss human rights texts and warned that otherwise these texts would be encountered every time.
Stating that he proudly wrote the story of the establishment of the Cihannüma Solidarity and Cooperation Association and was honored to be its founding chairman, Minister Tekin underlined that the association, which desires to transfer thousands of years of history to future generations, is one of the non-governmental organizations that carry out the most influential activities in Türkiye.
Stating that Necip Fazıl is not only a poet and writer of Turkish literature, Minister Tekin stated that Necip Fazıl is one of the most important thinkers of Turkish and Muslim thought and the intellectual ground in Türkiye.
Underlining that Necip Fazıl was an artist who devoted literature to the service of the Muslim community for the sake of the values he believed in, during a period in Türkiye's history with political prohibitions and oppression, Tekin said that the age in which Necip Fazıl lived was one that required direct struggle and was at the very center of the action for humanity and Islam. He underlined that it is an age that makes it necessary to buy. Stating that the history of Turkish democracy was often suppressed by the culture of tutelage, Minister Tekin said that Necip Fazıl was a poet stuck between coups. Minister Tekin emphasized that Necip Fazıl continues as a poet who puts his thoughts into action at every stage of his art.
"The side of oppression has always been the same in the past and the present"
Saying that commemorating Necip Fazıl requires remembering Jerusalem and Palestine, Minister Tekin stressed that all these murders, brutality, and oppression of Muslims requires a more careful look at men of cause like Necip Fazıl, who devoted his life to the unity and solidarity and well-being of Muslims. Minister Tekin said that the side of oppression is always the same in the past and today. Underlining that tomorrow the side of the oppression will be the same, Minister Tekin stated that Necip Fazıl is the voice of truth of the oppressed nations in the Muslim lands, as well as the courage of the Muslims in Gaza. Emphasizing that the voice of artists and thinkers like Necip Fazıl will never be lost, Minister Tekin said that high ideas will always exist in the face of oppression, and a Muslim harmony and Gaza will continue to exist.
Pointing out the importance Necip Fazıl gave to young people, Tekin stated that the Ministry of National Education is trying to build a hard-working, responsible and environmentally sensitive youth. Minister Tekin underlined that they are trying to ensure that children reach this generation that Necip Fazıl idealized by using every opportunity they can, and wished that they would be fortunate enough to raise such a patriotic youth who loves their country and nation very much.
Minister Tekin congratulated the universities, academics and teachers who strive to transfer values such as Necip Fazıl and Sezai Karakoç to future generations.
