In Turkey, a man was sentenced for three years of imprisonment for Tawhid flag
Istanbul supreme court convicted Salahiddin Kach for keeping at home the flag of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him). Islamic symbols posted in Facebook and Tawhid flag that many Muslims keep at home became the reason for sentencing Salahidding Kach for three years. Even the fact that two of Salahiddin’s children are handicapped, said Abdurahman Ozdemir, human rights activist and lawyer of Salahiddin Kach. According to the lawyer Ozdemir, recently the government uses the Islamic symbols to put fear in hearts of Muslims. Previously, they used hijab and scarf of Muslim women; now they try to terrorize using the Tawhid flag. “Flag of Tawhid which can be found almost in every Muslim’s house is shown as a flag of terrorist organizations and criminal cases are initiated against Muslims and they are being convicted for that reason. A good example for that is the sentence of the Istanbul court as of March 15. At that proceeding, Salahiddin Kach was sentenced for three years of imprisonment and sent to prison in Silivri. This sentence insults our beliefs and it must be immediately revoked because our fathers and grandfathers left us this country together with Islam. The Tawhid flag, as well as the seal of the Messenger of Allah (peace and blessing of Allah be upon him) general for all Muslims and they cannot be attached to one or another organization or group”, lawyer Abdurahman Ozdemir stated.
