Our state is big enough to detect the criminals and give the necessary punishment. Above all, Allah is the greatest justice and judge. Our request from those who want to turn our pain into a political material and make a political reckoning over our pain is to put their hands on their consciences and respect our pain. Right now, there is only one truth: Sinan Ateş is a nationalist martyr who was the victim of a treacherous assassination. All we expect from anyone who wishes to honor his spiritual memory is prayer.”
