Former President of Diyanet Prof. Mehmet Görmez participated in the opening ceremony of the imam-hatip middle school. Speaking at the opening, Görmez said that those who turn their back on Al-Quds cannot claim Haramain.
Beginning his speech with the wish of the freedom for Masjid Al-Aqsa, which is under the zionist occupation, Görmez said:
"Those who turn their backs on Jerusalem cannot claim Haramain. Jerusalem awareness is not a temple, a sacred space awareness. Jerusalem awareness is a civilization consciousness, a sense of history, a miraj [ascension] consciousness. Jerusalem awareness is also a peace consciousness for all humanity." (İbrahim Koçyiğit - ILKHA)
