Commemoration program holds for Gêra Cafer martyrs
MARDIN - In the village of Gêra Cafer in Dargeçit district of Mardin, 15 villagers who were martyred since 1990 as a result of attacks carried out by PKK commemorated in a program.
Those who were martyred in the period of 1991-2016 during the attacks carried out by PKK in the village of Altınoluk (Gêra Cafer) in Dargeçit (Kerboran) are memorialized upon their graves.
Opinion leaders, representatives of non-governmental organizations, relatives of martyrs and lovers participated to the program that organized by the Martyrs Caravan Platform.
Molla Osman Teyfur who made a speech in the program said, “The fight between right and superstition has begun since the mankind came on the earth. As the people of faith have sacrificed so much, the people of devil have given many lives in their own way. Those sacrifices and serves more for their own cause, they are victorious.”
“A cause without sacrifice and trouble will not work,” said Teyfur and added: "This is true for both righteous and superstitious cases. Nobody has reached victory without sacrifice, victory, and has not been victorious in the face of their enemies. On the path of believers and Muslims who know each other, Allah, has chosen the martyrs which is a great order for them to reach witness to the right and superstition.”
Teyfur said, “When we are gathered at the side of the graves of the martyrs, we are talking about sacrifice and heroism that they have done. Today, we shall speak more of ourselves than martyrs. The martyrs have already reached to a great authority and position and have won the favor of Allah. This is why Allah has given us the ayah, ‘Do not say death to those who are martyred in the way of Allah’.”
Teyfur stated that the children of the martyrs should be the example of others by owning the heritage of their fathers and that “The wives of martyrs, their children and their brothers should have the inheritance of the martyrs. They should be examples to us. They shall say, ‘As the martyrs did not give up on this cause, we do not give up too’. There are comforts after every trouble. Once you have suffered so much in this land. You have sacrificed many precious brothers and sisters. With these martyrs you have reached comfort in this land.”
“When we fall into the blindness, religion and faith, life and property, honor and obedience will fade,” said Teyfur and continued his speech as, “If we walk together, our cause will also walks with us. We will fall into disgrace if we are touched by the favors of the world. When we fall into the blindness, religion and faith, life and property, honor and obedience will fade. We have to sit together with our brothers and sisters of the cause. We have to come together to counsel each other. Nations who are not united in the cause of Allah were suffered the sadness in the end, have been exposed to trouble and disturbances. If we do not struggle, if we get away from the Islamic brotherhood, if we are loosely, if our goal is to become a world life, our enemies will take their place, wil attack on us totally, will capture our children, and property. That’s why we all have to protect the cause of martyrs.”
At the end of his speech, Teyfur said, “Fear should not take us away from this road. Allah had appreciated the lives of the martyrs in this way when He created the world.” (Seyfullah Şengül - ILKHA)
