Religion is an important institution. A nation without religion cannot survive. Yet it is also very important to note that religion is a link between Allah and the individual believer. The brokerage of the pious cannot be permitted. Those who use religion for their own benefit are detestable. We are against such a situation and will not allow it. Those who use religion in such a manner have fooled our people; it is against just such people that we have fought and will continue to fight. Know that whatever conforms to reason, logic, and the advantages and needs of our people conforms equally to Islam. If our religion did not conform to reason and logic, it would not be the perfect religion, the final religion.

Mustafa Kemal Ataturk

Türk genci, devrimlerin ve cumhuriyetin sahibi ve bekçisidir. Bunların gereğine, doğruluğuna herkesten çok inanmıştır. Yönetim biçimini ve devrimleri benimsemiştir. Bunları güçsüz düşürecek en küçük ya da en büyük bir kıpırtı ve bir davranış duydu mu, ‘Bu ülkenin polisi vardır, jandarması vardır, ordusu vardır, adalet örgütü vardır.’ demeyecektir. Elle, taşla, sopa ve silahla; nesi varsa onunla kendi yapıtını koruyacaktır. Polis gelecek, asıl suçluları bırakıp, suçlu diye onu yakalayacaktır. Genç, ‘Polis henüz devrim ve cumhuriyetin polisi değildir.’ diye düşünecek, ama hiç bir zaman yalvarmayacaktır. Mahkeme onu yargılayacaktır. Yine düşünecek, ‘Demek adliyeyi ıslah etmek, rejime göre düzenlemek lazım.’ diyecek. Onu hapse atacaklar. Yasal yollarla karşı çıkışlarda bulunmakla birlikte bana, başbakana ve meclise telgraflar yağdırıp, haklı ve suçsuz olduğu için salıverilmesine çalışılmasını, kayrılmasını istemeyecek. Diyecek ki, ‘Ben inanç ve kanaatimin gereğini yaptım. Araya girişimde ve eylemimde haklıyım. Eğer buraya haksız olarak gelmişsem, bu haksızlığı ortaya koyan neden ve etkenleri düzeltmek de benim görevimdir.’ İşte benim anladığım Türk genci ve Türk gençliği!
