Samanyolu TV celebrated the 20th anniversary of its foundation with a ceremony featuring a concert and several activities at the İstanbul Congress Center as hundreds of guests from the media, political world and business world thronged the hall to witness the night.

A collection comprising poems written by Fethullah Gülen and titled “Kırık Mızrap,” which hit store shelves in the early 1990s, was recited during the night.

Samanyolu TV Director Hidayet Karaca invited the guests to recall the early 1990s when Samanyolu TV first began its humble journey. “The channel, endorsed and prayed for by millions of people, began its humble journey to tell the story of this country,” he said.
