ADNAN OKTAR: Actually sports must be made obligatory by the state. For example, generally sports is only for an hour per week at school: It must be every day. Every day at least an hour, or an hour and a half, must be reserved for sports. This is necessary for a healthy youth. Or it could be once every other day, because it is important that the young are healthy and strong, both physically and mentally. “A healthy mind is in a healthy body.” Ataturk is a person who understood the importance of sports.
Campaigning for this would have no effect. Implementation works. There could a one-day break but if sports classes are obligatory, then the problem is solved. Two hours: We can build nice facilities at schools. Encouraging sports alone would not work; making it an obligation is a must. If a person is left to decide on his own, it is very difficult to do sports. People are generally lazy. If we do this, children would thank us later.
