'Those who turn their backs on Al-Quds cannot claim Haramain'

Speaking at the opening of an imam-hatip school ceremony in Gaziantep, Mehmet Görmez said, "Al-Quds cannot be without Haramain, and Haramain cannot be without Al-Quds. Those who turn their back on Al-Quds cannot claim Haramain."​

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."
