For more than a century Muslims all over the world have been living under repression. As a result of conflicts, disorders, repression and cruelty in the Turkish-Islamic zone thousands of innocent Muslims have lost their lives, tens of thousands became permanently disabled, millions of them were deported from their homes and countries, and many others were arrested only because of their beliefs and ideas. Today in Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan, East Turkestan, Moro and various other Islamic countries ruled by repressive administrations this violence is going on with all its intensity.
Lately in East Turkestan a total of 796 Muslims—600 of them concealed—were executed without specifying any grounds. These executions, violence and injustice will continue as long as the Turkish-Islamic Union is not established. In a world in which the Turkish-Islamic Union exists, it is impossible for China to engage in such a merciless practice without recognizing the International Law.
The existence of the Turkish-Islamic Union will both eliminate all of China’s concerns and fears and also establish an environment in which not a single Muslim will suffer the slightest injustice and loss. The only way for China to prosper; to continue to exist without being repressed, alienated; without its economy be shaken; to have access to the energy sources necessary for its industry; and to become a respected state is not to pursue a policy based on violence. China can attain these goals only by the establishment of the Turkish-Islamic Union.
The Turkish-Islamic Union will both protect the rights of Muslims who live in East Turkistan in the best manner and establish a secure environment in which Chinese and Uyghur Turks live together in peace and brotherhood. It will also contribute to the development and refreshment of China. It is obvious that an East Turkestan spiritually attached to the Turkish-Islamic Union will have a friendly contribution to China’s becoming a super-power. The Chinese administration should also recognize this fact.
Terrorist activities in the Turkish-Islamic zone will be totally eradicated, and those who incite terrorism will find themselves confronted by the highly deterrent army of the Turkish-Islamic Union military pact. The unitary structures of the states comprising the union will be maintained. Laicism will be one of the fundamental principles of the union. For that reason, both Muslims and non-Muslims will be able to live in security under the same strong roof.
The Turkish-Islamic Union is a union of love. It is a union of affection, a union of hearts. The bases of this union are love, altruism, helping others, compassion, tolerance and understanding. The aim of the union is also to achieve the highest levels in respect for human beings and in art, science and technology. Once the union is established, not just Turkish societies and Muslims, but the whole world, will attain enlightenment.
Turkish-Islamic Union is a unity of decency. This unity is not a fanatic, repressive unity that oppresses. It will provide security to nations both gathering under this flag and of the entire world. The Turkish Islamic world’s being under such a rational, responsible and just leadership will benefit both the 1.5 billion Muslims and all the other people in the world. Since the time of our Prophet (saas) Muslims have led humanity in the spheres of wisdom, science, thought, arts, culture, civilizations, and established giant works for the good of the humanity. The Turkish-Islamic Union will lead the 21st century in being an age of real enlightenment.
In the idea of the Turkish-Islamic Union there exists freedom of thought and expression. People of all thoughts and faiths can express their opinion without being under any repression and hardship. The rights of these people are protected and everyone’s thought is welcomed with tolerance. In the leadership of the Turkish-Islamic Union Muslim communities will become the kind of communities in which people will respect one another’s opinions. Equality, justice and freedom will dominate, cruelty and injustice will entirely be eliminated. The Islamic world will not only secure Muslims’ peace and security but also become the leader of culture and civilization in the world.
The enlightenment which will accompany the Turkish-Islamic Union will offer beauty to the entire world. USA, Russia, China, Israel and all the European states will witness the solution of long-lasting, deep-rooted problems all of a sudden and everyone will benefit from this. All the concerns of big states remaining outside the Turkish-Islamic world related to security, economy and cultural values will be entirely eliminated with the establishment of this unity. Struggle against terrorism will come to an end, the risk of cultural conflicts will entirely be eliminated, all people will benefit from underground resources and raw materials in the best way, economy will attain stability, the possibility of crisis will be eliminated, the budget allocated to military expenses will be spent for better and securer lives for people to lead. It is obvious that the existence of a strong Turkish-Islamic Union is to the benefit of all nations.
