Explaining that Hacı Bayram-ı Veli is one of the greatest representatives of the mystical plane, Hacı Bayram-ı Veli Cultural Interaction Working Group SözcüSü Pınar Öztürk shared her thoughts with the following words:
“The first day of the opening of the parliament, the Great Leader Atatürk coincided with the blessed Friday and he went to the parliament by praying and praying in the Hacı Bayram Mosque, taking the Hacı Bayram banner with him. Following in the footsteps of the Great Leader Atatürk, we established the working group in order to benefit from the teachings of Hacı Bayram-ı Veli and created an organic link between the society and the culture of Hacı Bayram Veli. We organize such events to better understand this culture.”
