Istanbul Technical University Research Assistant Neşe Nur Akkaya, who was first exposed to verbal attack and then physically abused by the person named, received support from the President of Religious Affairs Ali Erbaş.
Erbaş used the following expressions in his post on his Twitter account:
“Unfortunately, we see various manifestations of hostility towards Islam, which is a global threat, even in our country. We will always stand with love and brotherhood against these dirty minds who have no tolerance for the sacred value of a human being, who use hate speech and who use violence.
I convey my best wishes to our young brother, academician Neşe Nur Akkaya, who was attacked because of her headscarf, and I strongly condemn and condemn this attack and the attacker.”
