HUDA PAR’s leader Zekeriya Yapicioglu visited the families of the martyrs in Xanike to celebrate their Eid.
HUDA PAR’s leader Zekeriya Yapicioglu and a crowded group along with him visited the grave of Mehmet Serif Simsek and Abdulcelil Talayhan who were murdered by HDP members on 29 May in Sirnak, Kozluca (Xanike).
Yapicioglu firstly visited the family of Abdulcelil Talayhan. After praying the Zohar prayer in the mosque he then visited Mehmet Serif Simsek’s father. Simsek’s father Mahmut Simsek welcomed Yapicioglu in his house where they had a conversation with the martyr’s daughter Suheda.
“The blood of our martyrs is embellishing our case”
“If it won’t for the blood of our martyrs our case would have not been this nice. We are very glad for your visit and may Allah bless you. May Allah protect us all Muslims from the evil. Abdulcelil and Muhammed Serif both worked for their religion of Islam and Allah has therefore taken them next him. We loved them for the things they did.” said father Simsek.
“We will never return from our way”
“Martyrs have enlightened our way and maybe if it wasn’t for them we would have lost our way. They are mistaken if they think we will give up with our way by them murdering and torturing our people. We will never return from our way.” said Yapicioglu.
“We wish to attain the honour your father has attained”
Yapicioglu then had a conversation with Mehmet Serif Simsek’s daughter Suheda requesting dua from her, “We wish to attain the honour your father has attained. Make dua for us too. We have a lot to do but we pray that Allah grants us with long life of serving for our case.” Suheda stated that they are aware that her father is waiting for them in heaven and they will deserve for their father.
“We will never forget them”
Yapicioglu made a statement to Ilke News Agency regarding his visits stating, “On the first day of Eid we visited our brothers that were murdered on 7 October 2014 in Diyarbakir and Aytac Baran’s family. We also visited their graves and today we are here. We visited the families of our brother here and we will also visit their graves. We will never forget them. We will always remember their memories. Their way will be continued.”
“There are thousands of young people who are willing to sacrifice themselves”
Yapicioglu underlined that there are thousands of young people who are ready and willing to sacrifice for the case of Islam, “We are the servants of Allah and we serve for his religion of Islam. We will never hesitate to sacrifice ourselves for Islam. There are thousands of young people who are willing to sacrifice themselves for Islam. The children you see around may be the final people leading on after us. May Allah grant the martyrs family and friends with patience.”
“Villagers welcomed us with great kindness”
The villagers welcomed Yapicioglu with great kindness and he was seen to have spoken to the villagers he came across with. After visiting the families Yapicioglu also visited the cemetery and distributed sweets to children that he saw. (ILKHA)
