Turkish PM backs legal status for Alevi worship places

ISTANBUL, TURKEY - JUNE 16: Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim addresses Alevi opinion leaders in Istanbul, Turkey on June 16, 2018. Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Saturday hinted that Alevi houses of worship would be granted legal status in Turkey. “We have decided to take the status of Alevi house of worship and Irfan [culture] centers out from discussion,” Yildirim said. Alevis have been for long urging Turkish governments to grant official status to their houses of worship. The exact size of the Alevi population in Turkey is not known, but they constitute the second-largest religious community in the country after Sunni Muslims. Yildirim also said Turkey should confront its history as he recalled the 1938 massacre in eastern Tunceli province, which was then called Dersim. “1938 Dersim is a great pain. I say this very openly, this country should confront Dersim [incident],” Yildirim said. More than 14,000 civilians, majority of whom were from the Alevi religious community, were killed in a military offensive in the Dersim province following a rebellion against the then government's resettlement policies.(Footage by /Anadolu Agency/Getty Images)
