Ex-mufti of Beyoglu spoke on Halk TV this morning

In summary for the part that we could watch, the ex-Mufti of Beyoglu (the district of Istanbul in which Taksim lies) said:

the protesters are not heathens as PM Erdogan claims

He himself distributed cookies at the Mir’aj and together they read the Quran

Friday prayers were observed in the square

They went into the mosque (Dolmabahce Valide Sultan Mosque) to protect themselves and did not drink alcohol {PM lied to the people saying they drunk in the mosque even though the imam and the muezzin of the mosque falsified his claims – we have a post about this]

he said they only are trying to defend their rights
