'Rid Islamic Ignorence, Influenced Less by Missionaries'

"Director General of the World Ehl-i Beyt Association, Fermani Altun, said that it is not possible to prevent missionary activity with laws or pressure.

Altun, stressing that one should inform the people about their beliefs, continued: "There is a great ignorance about Islamic science and history. Our youth is not sufficiently able to learn Islam, which leads them to be lost in a spiritual gap. Henceforth, the gap is filled by seperate faith groups and missioners".

He added, "The associations that care about Islamic unity and brotherhood need support. In short, I do not think that missionaries can be prevented by using either bans or pressure. If our people learn what to believe, they will not be lost in a gap, and influenced by missionaries"."
