Armenian Protestant Church Became a Library

The Armenian Protestant Church in Diyarbakır was leased to the Ministry of Culture as a library. Krikor Ağabaloğlu, the head of the Gedikpaşa Protestant Church Foundation, the spiritual leader of the Armenian Protestant Community, reacted to the decision by shooting a video: ”As you enter the General Directorate of Foundations, you will see the foundation’s prayer and the foundation’s curse. Don’t get a curse, get a prayer.”

“Every person has the right to worship”

Stating that they condemn the decision and that they will not accept it, Ağabaloğlu said, “It is a great wound for us. It gives us great trouble. We are sad. Because our government needs to think about it. Every person has the right to worship. It is community property. It is the property of the Armenian Protestant community. As the spiritual head of the Protestant church, I have previously requested that this place be given to us. It was previously given to the governor’s office. Can you imagine? There is a church, there is a congregation. It is not given to the congregation, it is not considered appropriate to serve as a church. It is given to different segments to be used for different purposes. We can see this neither religiously nor morally appropriate. We condemn it. We have requested that this place be handed over to our congregation. We are persistent in our request. It must be given back to us.”

“Delivered to the state in good faith”

“In 1983, when the conditions were not suitable and terrorism was intense, the authorities of the place handed over it to the state in good faith and said, ‘We will not be able to protect our property, but you do.’ Did they make a mistake? Now the state says, “Since it was given to us, the property is ours” and wants to allocate it, rent it to us. Or want to use it for other purposes.

The most ethical thing to do is to abandon such decisions and return it to the congregation. Because it is foundation property. As you enter the General Directorate of Foundations, you will see the foundation’s prayer and the foundation’s curse. Don’t get a curse, get a prayer and give the property of the foundation to its owners so that they can fulfill their religious obligations there. We will continue our legal fight against this.” (Diken)
