Turkey pays homage to Basayev

Funeral prayer performed for Shamil Basayev, who was killed in Chechen fight against Russia, in his absence. Tens of thousands of people attended the funeral prayer performed at Istanbul’s Fatih Mosqu

Funeral prayer was performed in Istanbul for Chechen leader Shamil Basayev, who was killed by Russian forces on July 10, 2006. He had fought for Chechens against the Russian military for 15 years, struck a huge blow to Russia forces in Caharkale, took part in a score of operations and had forced Russians to negotiate with Chechens. Although there are speculations about how he was killed, Basayev had devoted his life to Islam and had fought for years for the honor of Muslims. We pray to Allah to put him among martyrs next our prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him).       


A large crowd paid farewell to the martyr at Fatih Mosque. Tens of thousands of Muslims performed funeral prayer for Basayev and other martyrs killed during their fight against oppressors after Friday prayer at Fatih Mosque.  


Following the prayer, attendees recited prayers and shed tears for Basayev and other martyrs. IHH chairman Bülent Yıldırım addressed to the attendees saying: “Sinister Putin called Turkey after the death of Basayev and asked what they could do for Palestine. We know that his real intention is to suppress the reaction of Muslims against Russia over the death of Basayev. The whole world united and helped Russia to kill Basayev as they did to exterminate Dudayev in the past. Israel is advising Russia to build a fence in Chechnya to eliminate Chechen threat as it did in Palestine. Russia has applied to become a member of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC). Chechens, however, are asking Muslims countries how they could accept a country that has so far killed over 300,000 people, 46,000 of them children, to the OIC. Basayev had previously sent letters to heads of Muslims states saying what was happening in Chechnya and calling on them to stop Russia. If Muslim leaders had opposed Russia then, so many civilians would have not been killed in Chechnya.”         
The crow frequently interrupted the speaker shouting slogans like “We are following you Basayev. Murderer Russia, get out of Chechnya! Murderer Israel, get out of Palestine! Murderer Israel, get out of Lebanon! Murderer the United States, get out of the Middle East! Salute Hamas, continue resistance!” Attendees burned down Russian and Israeli flags as well.


All attendees were moved by longs prayers recited after speeches. The crow recited prayers and shed tears for the unity of Muslims and for an end to killings worldwide. Attendees dispersed peacefully after the funeral prayer.
