Turkish Adhan and Concealed Truths of a Period

Turkish Adhan and Concealed Truths of a Period

Mustafa Armagan conveys the days when the adhan was recited in Turkish and the day when Prime Minister Menderes allowed Arabic adhan. This book unveils the curtain of a sorrowful period of our recent history that we were made to forget. “Please have mercy they said. How could saying ‘Allahuekber’ can be a reason to be arrested? It is not a crime to recite Arabic in the mosque. But when it comes to the minaret, it’s a crime. Likewise, if the one curses from minaret instead of reciting adhan is not a crime as well. However, when Allahuekber is said that means prison. This is our 1300-year-old tradition. We have been accustomed to say Allahuekber for 1300 years. Since this is a laic country, why are you imprisoning us because we said “Allahuekber” instead of saying “God is Great” in Turkish? When a Christian performs worship in any language of his choice, you don’t make a sound, but why don’t you let us speak in the language we are used to in Allah’s presence?” (Words of a Turkish adhan period victim…)
