and they call him Atheist!

Many theories raised their heads after the death of Ataturk. Many of them suggested that Ataturk was Non-Muslim but most of them suggested that Ataturk was Atheist.

To those who propagate the false idea that Ataturk was some kind of Atheist, does an atheist promote religious thoughts? Does an atheist translate Quran and Hadith into the mother tongue of native people to make it easier to understand? If Ataturk was Atheist, why did he prepared a special copy of Quran and carried it wherever he went?

Ataturk’s deeds and word confirm the fact that he was NOT an atheist but was a devout Muslim.

Ataturk said the following words and included them in many of his speeches:

“In my view, even irreligious types are believers. It is impossible for a person to be irreligious. Nobodycan be irreligious.” (Ataturk, 02. 02. 1923, Izmir, Speech on the Future of Turkey.)

“Religion is human beings’ nourishment. An irreligious man is like an empty house. He distresses people.
We must always believe in something. This last of the faiths is of course the most perfect. Islam issuperior to all faiths…” (Ataturk, Ataturk and Religious Education, Ahmet Gürbas, Department of Religious AffairsPress, p. 2)
“The Turkish nation must be more devout. It must be devout in all simplicity. I believe this in the same
way I believe in my faith…” (Ataturk’s Words and Statements, Vol. 3, p. 69-70, 29.10.1923, statement tothe French author Maurice Pernot)”
