ANKARA - HDP MP Garo Paylan has submitted a Parliamentary question on banners spreading hate speech about Christians and Jews at bus stops in central Anatolian province of Konya.

Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Diyarbakır MP Garo Paylan has submitted a Parliamentary question on banners spreading hate speech about Christians and Jews at the bus stops of Konya Metropolitan Municipality.
 
In the banners recently shared and denounced on social media, Surah Al-Maidah [5:51] is quoted from the Quran, which reads "O you who have believed, do not take the Jews and the Christians as allies. They are [in fact] allies of one another. And whoever is an ally to them among you - then indeed, he is [one] of them. Indeed, Allah guides not the wrongdoing people."
 
In response to these hate speech banners, HDP Diyarbakır MP Garo Paylan has addressed a Parliamentary question to Minister of Interior Süleyman Soylu. Paylan has asked a series of questions to Soylu:
 
How do you explain that banners spreading racism and hate speech and inciting people to commit hate crimes at the bus stops of Konya Metropolitan Municipality?
Were the banners in question examined by the Konya Metropolitan Municipality before being hung at bus stops?
Has your Ministry launched an investigation against the municipality officials who gave permission to these banners?
Has your Ministry launched an investigation against the Anatolian Youth Association and National Youth Foundation who used hate speech?
What does your Ministry do to prevent hate speech in local administrations?
Do you think that the frequent use of hate speech by the power holders, including you, contributes to the spread of hate speech?
