New Humanist's Unrealistic Claims about the SRF's Activities Regarding Ataturk

New Humanist magazine employed statements made by someone totally unknown to the SRF circle to make deeply unpleasant allegations about that group. It is apparent that the claims concerning Mustafa Kemal Ataturk are the product of a seriously flawed logic. Adnan Oktar is today the person who publishes the finest, best quality and most influential books concerning Ataturk and who arranges Ataturk exhibitions and praises him in interviews addressed to the whole world.  He has many times expressed his love of and devotion to Ataturk, before the eyes of the whole world, on a great many television programs he has taken part in. Just a few examples of these are as follows:

Ekin TV, 29 January 2009

Ekin TV: Now, on the subject of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, you have written books about Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Could you expand on the subject for us? How do you describe Ataturk, or how do you describe his heart?
ADNAN OKTAR: Masha’Allah, yes, Ataturk was a heroic figure. He was very handsome and very intelligent, an esteemed Ottoman general and a heroic Turkish general and commander in chief. Ataturk’s religious devotion was greater than most people can ever achieve. He had a commentary on the Qur’an prepared, for instance, the Elmali commentary, which is very important. He also had a commentary drawn up on Bukhari, the Sahih Bukhari, one of the most important of the books of hadith, and had that printed. He set up the Religious Affairs Office, the state’s largest organization, the Religious Affairs Office. And he established a system for us to experience religion in an honest and sincere manner. He did away with hypocrisy. He set up the laic system that would eliminate hypocrisy. And he opened the way for us to live by genuine Islam. It is a miracle that people still cannot understand the way that he put an end to occupation, broke the enemy occupation.  It was a blessing on him from Allah. Our Ataturk was a blessing. Because he rebuilt a state and a nation that had been completely shattered and destroyed. Allah used him as His instrument, masha’Allah. May Allah be pleased with him. And the Great Commander was a lover of the Qur’an. He is someone who had the Qur’an recited every evening and took great pleasure from that. He is someone who investigated and researched both the true meaning of the Qur’an and who also enjoyed hearing it recited. He had special people who knew the Qur’an by heart, a little known fact. And he enjoyed having it recited to people around him and listening to it himself. That is why the more people know about Ataturk the more they love him and value him. We must talk about him in terms of this reality. He was an anti-communist. “Gentlemen,” he said, “communism is the greatest foe of the Turkish nation. It must be crushed wherever it is seen.”  Pearls fell from his lips, masha’Allah. That is why I describe him as a lion. There is so much to him. Who else would have had the courage to close down the masonic lodges? He told them to close the lodges down at once, and they were shut down that very evening. Nobody in the world would have had the courage to close down the masonic lodges. That is the heroism he displayed. There is no end to Ataturk’s heroism.

Kanal Malatya: Was Ataturk religious?
Adnan Oktar: Ataturk was both religious and a perfect human being. One could describe him all day. Just think, he had a commentary on the Qur’an drawn up, on the book that represents fundamental knowledge for Muslims. He had it done by the most immaculate scholar. By Elmali. Elmali Hamdi Yazir Efendi. And he provided that commentary for the Turkish people. He also had the most trustworthy book of hadith explained. He ordered a commentary and made the Sahih Bukhari available to the public. He had the Religious Affairs Office set up. He said that communism was the worst foe of the Turkish nation and must be crushed wherever it was seen. Heroic language, masha’Allah. He espoused Turkish Union, Islamic union and Turkish-Islamic union. He loved the Qur’an. He had the Qur’an recited for him every evening.  He knew all about the excellent life of the Prophet (saas). He was a true admirer of the Prophet (saas). Ataturk said so many great things about the Prophet (saas). As I say, I could go on all day...  For example, Ataturk said: “O Nation, Allah is One and great is His glory.” See what pearls fall from his lips. “May the goodness, and protection of Allah be upon you. Note that the laws imposed by Him are the most glorious verses of the Qur’an. Our religion is the last religion that has bestowed the spirit of spiritual power on people. Because if our religion were not compatible with logic and the truth, there would be differences between it and other faiths and of course laws. It is Almighty Allah Who made these divine laws.” He was a complete son of Islam. All Muslims must follow the path shown by the Prophet Muhammad (saas). And they must fully obey his commands. All Muslims must take the Prophet Muhammad (saas) as a role model and behave just like him. They must implement all the rules of Islam, because only then can people be saved and prosper.
It is Adnan Oktar who most powerfully describes Ataturk’s religious devotion and profound love of Allah and our Prophet (saas). Adnan Oktar has these web sites in Turkish about Ataturk:

Some of Adnan Oktar’s valuable works in Turkish about Ataturk are:
