Turkish Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu on Nov. 12 called the LGBTI+ community as “propaganda of a terrorist organization.” “There is cultural terrorism. The propaganda of a terrorist organization, which tries to make people forget their values, their religion, unity, parental love and family loyalty. It is exactly Europe’s policy, exactly America’s policy of divide and rule,” Soylu said while speaking to the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) members in the northwestern province of Bilecik. “What will happen? They will bring LGBT to Turkey. Forgive me, men will marry men, women will marry women. It just suits (main opposition CHP leader) Kılıçdaroğlu. What a shame. It lacks all values. They are trying to create a policy based on an understanding that will alter almost all of our values ​​so that they can win the hearts of the Europeans and the West,” Soylu further said.
