For the first time ever prayer service at a mosque in Turkey was held in Kurdish. The Ulu mosque in Amed (Diyarbakir) held
the sermon in Kurdish after yesterday’s evening prayers. Mosques in Turkey are run by the Directorate of Religious Affairs, a state body that regulates the role of Islam in the country. The sermon will be broadcast today on TRT6, marking another first, in which state-run television is broadcasting a religious service in Kurdish.
