Mr. Adnan Oktar always recommends politicians to be close with the people. In addition, he also says that our government must adopt a more modernist approach. Mr. Binali Yildirim visited the Karsiyaka sports club and played volleyball with the ladies team and thus displayed a respectful attitude towards women who don't wear the headscarf and shattered claims of fundamentalism.

ADNAN OKTAR: I see same people, some statesmen with a cold expression on their faces. They need to stop doing this. This is no way of being a statesman. They don't even have a slight smile on their faces. They are heavy and cold using a very formal language. They don't laugh. They don't have an expression of compassion. ALL RIGHT, THERE IS SERIOUSNES IN BEING A STATESPERSON, BUT THE STATE’S COMPASSION IS A HIGHER VALUE. STATE COMPASSION AND SERIOUSNESS ARE HAND IN HAND. THEY ARE NOT SEPARATE. Why is this? Why do you sulk? “State seriousness.” Show some compassion. If you approach people with arrogance and pride, or not looking anyone in the face, that would cause hatred and coldness.
THEY MUST EAT TOGETHER; SIT WITH THEM AND KISS THE MOTHERS’ HANDS AND HUG GRANDFATHERS, AND DINE WITH THEM IF NECESSARY AND HAVE FUN WITH THEM; THIS IS HOW TO BE A STATESMAN. THE APPEARANCE OF A COLD, ARROGANT, OUT-OF-REACH PERSON WOULD CAUSE GREAT HARM.
ADNAN OKTAR: Real modernity and a society of joy. Not a cold, grey society but a joyful, cheerful, quality society full of life; this must be the aim of the state and the government.

ADNAN OKTAR: A human being is created in need of compassion since childhood. Even in his mother’s arms, he wants more compassion. When he grows up, he still wants compassion. Always compassion… Really a cold and authoritarian understanding of state would bore people a little. This contradicts human nature a little. Administrators who are more compassionate, talkative and close to the people would make people feel better as well. They need to pay attention to this. Being close to the people, eating and drinking with them; and talking their language…
