Temel said, “The month of Ramadan is the month of unity and solidarity. Allah may reach us to the Laylat al-Qadr and Eid with a pure face. Ramadan also is an opportunity month for Muslims. Our hope is that all Muslims benefit from this month, increase their practice and decrease their sins.”
Stating that the efforts and services of Islam will never be lost in these lands, Temel said: “The people of Şırnak have lived very hard in recent years and still living. As people of the region we all live in great difficulties. Our people live under persecution and difficulties since the establishment of the republic. This persecution maybe has been done to all Muslims but we Kurdish Muslims exposed more. We have been persecuted twice, first because we are Muslims and second because we are Kurds.”
“We want the injustice and cruelty to end,” said Temel, who addressed to government from the city of Noah Prophet for the living persecution and injustice, added, “It is a matter of great oppression and the fall of Şırnak from being a province will double the injustice. Şırnak and Hakkari our historic and ancient cities. We do not say don’t bring Yüksekova and Cizre to the provinces level, make them provinces. But you are destroying another place when you are making a place.” (ILKHA)
