The memorial program “Asım’s Generation” that was organised by IZU Mehmet Akif Ersoy Art Research Center was held at ISEFAM Conference Center, on 11th April 2017. The program started with the opening speech made by our President Prof. Dr. Mehmet Bulut. He said: “It is a big honour to be a student and an academician in a school where Mehmet Akif Ersoy taught and studied. After its foundation, this country survived many hardships and Mehmet Akif Ersoy came to the help of all. Then, Mehmet Akif Ersoy was attacked and payed the biggest price, so he lived in Egypt till his death. He was a humble man. He says ‘I had a quiet life, whoever knows me’. Now, he is known all around the world. He is a man who effected not only Turks but also intellectualists of the world.”
The Dean of IZU Islamic Sciences Faculty Prof. Dr. Turan Koç told about the life of Mehmet Akif Ersoy: “He is not only a poet, but also a politician, a preacher and a person who is taken as an example Muslim. To understand Akif, we have to read his book Safahat”.
The program was ended with the poems of Mehmet Akif Ersoy read by Ender Doğan and the students.
