THE LETTER OF HUDA KAYA
TO ISLAMIC HUMAN RIGHTS COMISSION
Elhamdulillah and salam to His Honourable Prophet Muhammed, our lovely
leader, our lovely guide. Salam to the Honourable Prophet Muhammed (s)'s
followers, the momineen resisting against oppression and the momineen whose
hearts are beating with us, sharing our pains.
Dear sisters and brothers,
We are too proud to see that you are interested in the problems of Muslims
in Turkey who are living the basic principle of Islam that "only the momineen
When the so-called Muslims very near to us, don't even care what has
been done to us, to know that there are people that are interested in us
makes us very happy and proud.
Through IHRC, I am sending salam to all those valuable momineen brothers
The oppressions and the bans were already present in Turkey but in last
few years it has increased to the highest levels. Meanwhile the citizens
of the Turkish Republic who think, write and talk are getting arrested
and sent to prison, and kicked out from their jobs. Oppressions and the
torture are the first currency in Turkey.... There is no private life in
Turkey and what is present about it, is under the invetsigation of the
And when the oppressions are directed to our religion , Islam , we,
the Muslim Women are put in the target as we put on hijab as Allah ordered
as a religious responsibility ...
Muslim women and young girls from every level are oppressed regardless
of if they were going to the religious schools* or high schools. Today
these oppressions are increasing ever faster ...
If you oppose the bans, then you face torture, oppression, courts and
I was arrested in Istanbul in 1998 as I demonstrated against this oppression.
After that I was again arrested in Malatya because of my reaction to the
hijab ban. (October 1998 - January 1999). I was sentenced under article
312 of the Turkish Penal Code to 20 months for writing an article in the
newspaper, the subject of which was "The insensitive behaviour of so-called
Muslim." The case is now in the Supreme Court.
After that there had been demonstrations against the hijab ban in Malatya
(April 1999-May 1999). Me and my three daughters were arrested again. In
court we are charged under article 146 of the Turkish Penal Code and our
death has been called for by the Prosecution. This is another beginning.
In fact they send mohajibahs to prison, in order to shut up peoples mouths.
They found the death penalty as a solution. But they don't even sense that
they are showing us how they are finished.
Elhamdulillah. We are just laughing in their faces, as they are trying
to shut our mouths with the death penalties. They don't even understand
that we have already chosen this way to reach the level of being a MARTYR
to get Allah's pleasure. The Turkish authorities are fighting against the
People have very certain concerns about the hijab ban would reach to
the streets...Our first hearing was be on July 22nd. My three daugthers
were in the last class of their schools. The youngest one of my three daughters
is aged 17. She is here in the prison as she read the "OATH of FREDDOM"...
And the other one at the age of 18 , Nurulhak is here as she read "SONG
OF FREEDOM". And Intisar at the age of 19 is here as she was present at
the demonstrations as a correspondent.
When my daughters were arrested they faced torture from the police to
tell them where their mother was living...They were beaten very heavily,
and subjected to psychological torture. By doing this they are trying to
break up the "Hijab Resistance". And we know that the history is built
upon "Tevhid ( the word of saying that Allah is one)Struggle". But people
have never thought of martyrdom as death. And WE ARE GOING TO TAKE OUR
ROLE IN THIS INFIDEL - MUSLIM WAR. WE ARE GOING TO RESIST AGAINIST OPPRESSION
AT EVERY LEVEL. AND WE TRY WITH OUR WHOLE HEART TO GET MUSLIM WORLD UNITY.
"Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way in ranks as if they were
a firm and compact wall."
(Saff-4 / Holy Quran)
And again by using IHRC, I am sending salam to all those valuable momineen
brothers and sisters. We are waiting for your letters.
WITH SALAM AND PRAYERS,
"your sister who is waiting for your prayers"
E-Type Malatya Prison (E-Tipi Cezaevi/ MALATYA)
* these are kind of schools which are built by public money and nowadays
the government and the military are trying to close them down, without
heeding the communities yearnings of sending their children to those schools.
They do so to prevent the youth to learn even a very little bit about Islam.
Also it is banned to go to Qur'an Courses before the age of 15. In Qur'an
Courses you are taught to read the original text of the Holy Book. Arabic
is not taught there only the reading of Arabic letters is taught. By doing
this they want to prevent the younger generation's interest to Islam.
