After the operation they gave me a paper. I read the paper after I went home back. I saw that it was written ‘do not perform prayer for three weeks’. I got shocked and asked why I cannot perform prayer for three weeks. You can perform prayer in every way. You can perform prayer even in your heart or with your eyes. I am a greengrocer. I asked doctor when I can start to work, he said me that I can start to work one week later. That’s to say I can work in such a heavy work but I cannot perform prayer for three works.”
Calling on Ministry of Health, Bozdag asked them to correct this fault immediately. (ILKHA)
