Republican People’s Party (CHP) former party council member, Muhammed Cakmak referred to the global initiatives by volunteers of education as “a universal movement” and shared his belief that it will end the chaos in the Muslim world.

CHP advisor noted this understanding based on de-marginalizing should prevail in Turkey in order to overcome social problems. Cakmak further said “If Turkey is to present a role model to the Muslim and Western world again, it can be achieved only by reviving relations of love and compassion.”

Noting that he has been personally able to witness this understanding exercised through educational initiatives worldwide, Cakmak said, “Turkish people are practically leading a universal movement, which is made possible by reflection of heart. It comes out of supreme mind and intellect without marginalizing but cherishing richness of differences. If Turkey is to present a role model to the Muslim and Western world again, it can be achieved only by reviving relations of love and compassion. We have the potential for that. If we can build up on these relations, Turkey can symbolize love and tolerance in the new world.”

Corruption is a serious matter and the real best defense would be to help bring those who are charged to justice.

Toward a party state

At this point, the only thing Erdoğan can do is manufacture false charges and evidence against the Hizmet movement, which wouldn’t be persuasive. In a normal democratic state where the rule of law is cherished, there must be concrete evidence to press charges against anyone, and those so charged are presumed innocent until they are proven guilty. In a party state, however, imaginary charges are first voiced and then meddlesome public authorities manufacture crimes and criminals to fit those charges.
