"Trying to produce a moderate Muslim type"
Speaking about the projects being implemented, Mardin's active non-governmental organization Dost-Der's Chairman Fesih Memiş said that there is no such thing as "Interfaith Dialogue" in Islam, only a dialogue among the religious functionaries could be possible.
Memiş said, "Dialogue can be carried out in the social affairs of the world as a whole with other members of the religion whom we refer to as the People of the Book, for example in the tanning of the hungry, the wearing of naked people, or in the floods, earthquake disasters. It should not be forgotten that Islam is the only religion in the presence of Allah. That is why there is no such thing as 'Interfaith Dialogue'. In the year 2000, Fethullah Gulen, leader of the coup attempt of July 15, “Interfaith Dialogue” project was actualize. Unfortunately, both Turkey and the world media have supported it on the agenda. There were intellectuals, academics, teachers, scholars who opposed it, but their voice was low. Diyanet (Turkish Directorate of Religious Affairs), an institution of the state and the state itself, did not say anything about the subject in those years. As a result, 'Interfaith Dialogue' was a project. It was a project of imperialist powers. This dialogue, initiated by Gulen, leader of FETÖ, was in fact their project. Gulen was their pawn and even one of them. In short, the world imperialism tried to produce a moderate Muslim type that made no sound to all the acts that they would do. Of course the owner this religion is Allah, and Allah will create his servants who will help this religion."
"We wanted to give up the half of the Tawhid"
The educator Mahmut Yavuz regarded the "Interfaith Dialogue" meetings as a hypocrite, which held in different places, especially in Mardin.
Yavuz said, "What is desired to be imposed on us through interfaith dialogue; to give up on the second half of word of Tawhid which is Muhammad-un Rasulullah [Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah]. As a matter of fact, this is a submissive attempt in the form of reconciliation of Islam directly with Christianity, which the chief hypocrite of FETO designed and held in different places, especially in Mardin. The interfaith dialogue is also an attempt. It was a project of the West. The Islamic community that opposed of it, did not even get the support of the conservative media. The hypocrites of Medina what they did to Prophet, I read this same as like those hypocrites. It's not acceptable."
"We need to educate the children of the Ummah with the Qur'an again"
Yavuz continued and said, "There is no problem when Muslims take the Qur'an as a guide in this modern world. We became vulnerable when we turn away from the Qur'an. Therefore, we have no other way than our Qur'an education. We have to realize in the direction of Muhammad's authentic Sunnah. We have to educate the children of this Ummah with the Qur’an again."
