As the Turkish Nation, we are obliged to have a desire for growth and for the Turkish Islamic Union.
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Interview on A9 TV, Kocaeli TV and Aba TV dated July 16th, 2011
ADNAN OKTAR: Both Turkey and the region, everywhere around needs unity and coalescence. Unity clears off separation. A nation that constantly seeks unity would not be separated. A nation that does not seek unity would be disintegrated. That is because, if there is no unity or growth then there is stagnation. If there is stagnation, there is shrinkage. But if there is an ideal for ensuring growth if there is such a goal, if there is an ambition for being great, then there would be no shrinkage, no separation, insha'Allah. For that reason we, as a nation, are obliged to have a constant desire for growth, for being great, for the Unity of Islam, for the Turkish Islamic union.
All Muslims are each other's brothers, it is very normal for them to unite. As for the Turkish nation, -as the name states, Allah says; "I have created you as nations,"- we are obliged to unite as a nation. Turkey is a whole along with Kurds, Laz, Circassians, Bosnians all together. There are at least fifty different etnic elements in Turkey, if approached from that respect. Then obviously we are not in a position to devide Turkey to 50 different segments. On the contrary, we are a community that has mixed with each other. Everyone should get the idea of separation out of their minds. Such a thing would not happen. But we are to demand democracy all together, we are to demand secularity, we are to demand freedom all together. We are to want beauty, art, scieence, goodness, peace and brotherhood all together and for everyone, not for a specific region.
