The Horasan Eren, who came to Anatolia from the heart of the East, Horasan, thousands of kilometers away; Haci Bektas, Abdal Musas, Baba Mansurs, Ahi Evrans, Tapduk Emre, and Mevlana recognized the voice of brotherhood, human love and peace here. Khorasan, which gave us the gift of peace, love for humanity, extending to Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Iran, could not get rid of wars, suffering and poverty today. On this occasion, we pray that the oppressed of Afghanistan, which is a part of Khorasan, and all the East, will reach days that are free from war and destruction, and that respect human rights, especially women's and children's rights, in these difficult days.

However, it is possible to do what is necessary without giving any credit to the discriminatory language and style of those who perpetrate this negligence. As a matter of fact, we have been blessed, we have served Hacibektas together for 2 years. I see all the services rendered to the Hacıbektaş district as services to the thought, belief, philosophy, and therefore humanity of Hacı Bektaş. I would like to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has served here and to everyone who has worked so far. It has been a privilege for us to serve the Serçeşme homeland Hacıbektaş district for two years. It has become our duty to meet all the needs of this beautiful district, with the instructions of my President, Mr. Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu.

Stating that all these services are provided by everyone to the extent of their strength and effort, İmamoğlu said, “I am grateful to all the institutions that contributed, especially our President, and to all our brothers who made these works happen with their efforts. I believe that a structure should be established in order to continue the services provided in Hacibektas in unity and togetherness. May the services of our sentence be accepted in the hearts of all souls here. That's what I wish from all my friends here," he said.

The Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli Friendship and Peace Award was given to Yaşar Seyman, a politician, writer, trade unionist and CHP Party Assembly member. Seyman received his award from CHP Chairman Kılıçdaroğlu. Kılıçdaroğlu, who gave the award to Seyman, said in his speech, “We know that the basis of being a good person and continuing to live as a good person is; is morality. In this context; Saints such as Faik Ahmet, Hacı Bektaş, Mevlana, Yunus Emre, Balım Sultan, Ahmet Yesevi are the most important representatives of morality-based religious understanding in Anatolia. To be moral; It is the way to be conscientious and just.” Noting that Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli was born in the city of Nişabur in Khorasan, Kılıçdaroğlu said, “Nişabur is among the lands of Iran. Khorasan is the name of a large region that includes parts of Northeast Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan. For this reason, what is happening in Afghanistan today and what we need to do for a country like Afghanistan to find peace, is the teaching of Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli and other Khorasan saints. There is no problem in our religion. Islam; It is a religion of peace, brotherhood, justice, reason and science.”

"WE SHOULD RE-LEARN JUSTICE"

Stating that the Islamic geography has turned into a center of violence, terrorism and hatred at the point reached today, Kılıçdaroğlu said, “There are fundamental problems in issues such as women's rights, discrimination, marginalization, inequality of income distribution, human rights, environment, rule of law and justice. The source of our problems is not our beautiful religion. However, when this beautiful religion of ours is interpreted by some circles and in line with their own interests, the big problems I have just mentioned arise. Underlining that they have to solve these problems, Kılıçdaroğlu said:

“Countries need to face the reality they are in in a cold blooded way. In this context, we must relearn justice. We must relearn to share. We must relearn not to marginalize anyone. We must re-learn human rights and equality between women and men. We must reinvent income inequality, transparency and accountability. We must relearn not to be nepotistic, not to sleep full when the neighbor is hungry, and to re-learn the best interests of the child. And we must begin this process by repairing ourselves first. To begin with, we must be free from our personal ambitions. As we learned from Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli; We should live by staying away from what we do not deserve. We should consider cleanliness, beyond mere physical cleanliness, together with the cleanliness of the environment we live in and nature's right to life. These are not enough either. We must compete in goodness. But we must also resist injustice and injustice. And we should never despair. These are briefly what we learned from Hacı Bektaş.”

RACISM WARNING

Expressing that the West does not find it correct to define violence in the Islamic world as “Islamophobia”, Kılıçdaroğlu said, “It is necessary to criticize violence in the Islamic world not on the basis of belief or religion, but on human rights. When we act in this way, we show respect for belief, while at the same time displaying a universal stance against the violation of human rights, regardless of belief. That is the right thing,” he said. Underlining that a Muslim cannot be racist, Kılıçdaroğlu brought the word to the refugees and asylum seekers in our country, which has been on the agenda recently. Kılıçdaroğlu used the following statements:

“Our beloved Prophet took a very clear stance against racism in his farewell sermon. The same belief and philosophy exists in Yunus. He says '72 nations are one to us'. In Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli, 'Whatever their language, religion, color; the good ones are good. The good ones are always good, he says. We must compete with kindness. Therefore, we should approach the refugees and asylum seekers in our country without being racist. our effort; should aim to eliminate the conditions that cause asylum seekers to leave their country. Together we must establish and build the days when we will send them off to their countries with drums and zurnas. Believe me, we will definitely achieve this. Those who kill each other in the name of Islam and saying 'Allah Allah' in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen and Libya are Muslims. Those who were displaced from their homeland and forced to migrate from their countries are Muslims again. I am sorry to say that; According to statistics, most of the children suffering from war and hunger are Muslim children. Muslim countries are devastated in basic areas such as democracy, human rights, education, health, social equality and justice. Qualified administrators can eliminate this misery and injustice with rational policies. The way to do this is to receive inspiration from the teaching of Hacı Bektaş-ı Veli. It is to act justly and rationally.”
The opening ceremony ended with the magnificent concert of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra.
