TABOOS ARE BEING TORN DOWN
(By Prof. Dr. Ahmed AKGÜNDÜZ)
Those who peruse the series Taboos Are Being Torn Down will be
acquainted with very different and significant issues. In the first
place, satisfactory explanations have been attempted as to whether
the decrees of Islam have changed or not. Still, you can find in
this book the correct answers to the calumnies of the film called
İstanbul Kanatlarımın Altında (Istanbul Under My Wings),
whereabout oft mention has been made recently in mass media. Again,
you will acquire correct information about the life of Murad IV and
the replies given to the slanders about him in light of documents.
Besides, in this book will you find the detailed explanations of
such thought-provoking and significant issues as the treacherous and
seditious intrigues of Boutros-Ghali, who as Secretary General of
United Nations tyrannized the Bosnian Muslims, and his forefathers;
the truth of Womens right in legacy in Islam, about which much ado
is done for nothing; the final point in the argument about the
Religion-State relations in the Ottoman State and as to whether the
Ottoman State was a Muslim State; the two reports prepared upon the
instruction of the late Turgut Özal on The Ottoman Sovereignty in
Rumelia and The Issue of Dawshirmah (Recruitment) in the Ottoman
State; the physical and spiritual consequences of the conquest of
Istanbul; and the like actual topics.
From this work will it be perceived that the generations to come
will be able to learn easily the authentic history, and thus they
will not fall into national complexes anymore with the slanders of
the distorted history. In the expressions of Prof. Guboğlu There
might be good and evil phenomena in the history of any nation.
Nevertheless, you can hardly meet with a document in your history
that will blush your face and even if you open all the documents in
your archives which number millions.
