The Turkish government has printed a children’s comic apparently encouraging boys and girls to seek Islamic martyrdom, it has been reported

A cartoon called ‘may god bless our martyrs, may their graves be full with holy light’ was published by Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs.

The colourful drawings show a young girl saying ‘I wish I could be a martyr’ to which her mother replies: ‘If you desire enough, Allah will give you that opportunity’, according to a Russian news outlet.

The Turkish government has printed a children's comic apparently encouraging boys and girls to seek Islamic martyrdom. One cartoon shows a father explaining to his son 'how good it is to be a martyr'

RT reports that another cartoon shows a father explaining to his son ‘how good it is to be a martyr’ and telling him that martyrdom gives people the chance ‘to gain the right to go to heaven.’

According to RT, the drawings are accompanied by statements, one of which reads: ‘Our prophet says: a martyr feels the pain of dying as much as you feel pain when being pinched.’

The cartoon, which was reportedly published by government agency Diyanet, the highest national religious body, has sparked anger in some quarters.

‘They want to use the drawings to transfer the message of martyrdom to children because they think it will be more attractive,’  psychologist and professor Dr. Serdar Degirmencioglu told the Evrensel newspaper, according to RT.

The colourful drawings show a young girl saying 'I wish I could be a martyr' to which her mother replies: 'If you desire enough, Allah will give you that opportunity'

He also likened the mentality in the comic to the mindset of those who carried out terror attacks in Ankara as well as in Brussels and Paris.

He told the newspaper: ‘Turkey is overwhelmed with the pain of these massacres and with those pursuing the mentality of religiosity. All this has led to the death of people.

‘Exactly the same mentality that blinds people to the horrors is what the Presidency of Religious Affairs is trying to spread among the children in Turkey. The children will grow up and they will run toward death when those in power tell them to.’

  1. This is common in the Islamic world – comics for children in Palestine show “heroes and martyrs” – pictures of young men who were suicide bombers, praised for their ” heroic actions against the Jews,”

  2. Just more evidence of the need to cleanse America of this barbaric culture, and then take our success story to Europe and the Middle East.

  3. Turkey is the country that will propagate & perpetrate violence and evil. This is a wicked country seeking to Islamise the world beginning from EU . Turkey uses blackmail and subtle & cunning ways to subdue the West. Their craftiness is similar to the one used by Mohammed to gain strength to eventually expand Islamic power. Danger is lurking in the world! Muslims are dying for very evil cause – to gain bliss promised by Liat Mohammed!
