Turkish Daily News - Ozturk: Every new mosque harms Islam

"People's Ascent Party (HYP) leader and famous theologian Yaşar Nuri Öztürk said on Tuesday that every new mosque built did not help Islam but instead actually harmed it."

"Religion was being used by outside forces to harm Turkey, he said, adding: 'Every adverse development that harms Turkey is supported by the fundamentalists within. Those who govern Turkey are selected from those who will accept this destruction.'

He called for immediate measures to prevent religion being used against the people."
