Although in the last period of the Ottoman Empire, when the Republic of Turkey was formed, borders were drawn with which the rulers of the time tried to separate us from our heart, it was only a physical separation. Our hearts, souls and our Qiblah are one, we all feel it within us.

We will be with the people of our heart wherever they are in the world. We act with this motto."
