Freedom of Thought

You have encountered a lot of trouble because of your beliefs. In Turkey, the freedom of expressing one's ideas has not been secured. The eighth article of the Struggle with Terror law hasn't been abrogated. What do you think about this matter?

Efforts to suppress ideas via pressure or brute force have never been truly successful. History shows that no idea was ever removed by suppressing thought. Many great empires and states were destroyed, but an idea or thought whose essence is sound continues to live. Oral Calislar, Cumhuriyet daily, 8/20-26/95
