National and religious holidays are exceptional days that strengthen the bonds of mutual love, respect and solidarity, protect friendships, strengthen the desire of society to live together and strengthen the decency of being us. In this regard, we are experiencing the happiness of accessing another Eid al-Adha, which is one of our important religious holidays as a country.
Undoubtedly, holidays, which have an indispensable importance in our social life, allow for fusion, strengthening of friendship and kinship ties, within this respect, ensuring cultural continuity and transferring it to future generations. Fortunately for us, we live in a country where the spirit and mood of religious holidays are intensely experienced, and holidays are still celebrated as holidays. Undoubtedly, living pertinent to the meaning of our national and religious values as a country today, the share of the modern civilization infrastructure pointed out by the Great Leader Atatürk and the understanding of tolerance, which forms the basis of Mevlana's teaching, and the foundation of the true meaning of the Islamic religion based on sharing, is undeniable.
Under these feelings and thoughts, I wish that the holidays, in which love and sharing are intensely experienced, bring peace, tranquility and well-being to all humanity, and I congratulate the Eid al-Adha of our entire city and nation, especially the Konya Technical University family, with my sincerest wishes.
