It is a fact that Islamophobia, which has been committed for a long time, has a place in this case. We believe that anti-Islamism is fueling this event. As the Marmara Group Foundation, we condemn this massacre that we perceive as a new threat to humanity. We hope that this massacre in which in addition to anti-Islamism, the Turkish opposition is understood from communique, will be a lesson for the Western countries that encourage Turkish hostility and islamophobia. This massacre was actually committed against humanity as well as Muslims. We persistently demand that those who are behind this massacre in New Zealand must be found. Because we do not believe that those who are behind this massacre are traitorous, perverted murderer. We are sure that this is a scheme. We condemn those who organized the massacre, and want to know who is behind them. We wish mercy to the martyrs."
