Cudi Hosts Human History
The Governor of Şırnak, Ali Hamza Pehlivan, said that going to and holding an event in Judi affected everyone deeply.
“From the moment we landed on the field, I looked carefully and everyone's eyes were moist, emotional, and had a smile on their face. How happy God has given us today. Thank you. Cudi is home to human history.” Pehlivan said that Cudi is the oldest example of visiting and festival tradition.
Pehlivan continued his words as follows: “It embodies the exceptional memories of our Cudi hero Mehmetçik, our saint martyrs and veterans, and carries them to this day. Cudi is an exceptional place for human history. Unfortunately, in recent years, Cudi was a little bent and sad. Because the separatist terrorist organization set a barrier for our people, who have been keeping the tradition alive for centuries, from coming here. Thank God, our strong state continued its fight against terrorism with determination. Under the leadership of our President, our soldiers, gendarmes, security guards, and security guards put up an intense struggle. Security was and continues to be provided in Cudi and other areas. During this time, our state is developing security concepts. In order to ensure that this peace environment is permanent, roads and upper areas are being built. This concept was also applied on Mount Judi.”
After the speeches, balloons and pigeons were flown, and prayers were held in the area where the ship is believed to have run aground.
