Children’s Comic Printed By Turkish ‘Ministry of Religion’ Promotes Martyrdom To Children

Diyanet, the Turkish Presidency of Religious Affairs has published a children’s comic that encourages boys and girls to seek Islamic martyrdom.


A colorful cartoon titled “may god bless our martyrs, may their graves be full with holy light” features dialogues between parents and children that promotes an idea of religious martyrdom. In one box of the comics, a father says to his son: “How good it is to be a martyr…” He also adds that martyrdom gives a person an opportunity “to gain the right to go to heaven.”

In another box from the comics, a girl can be seen saying “I wish I could be a martyr.” “If you desire enough, Allah will give you that opportunity,” the mother in the box replies to the girl. RT
