I have a few more points I want to submit to
the authorities of Afyon, and to its Court and Police
The First: Most of the prophets appearing in the East and in Africa, and most of the philosophers emerging in the West and in Europe is a sign of pre-eternal Divine Determining that in Asia religion is dominant and philosophy is in second place. In consequence, even if those ruling in Asia are not religious, they should not interfere with those who work for religion; they should encourage them.
The Second: The All-Wise Qur’an is the intellect and power of thought of the head of the earth. If, I seek refuge with God, the Qur’an were to depart from the globe, the globe would go mad. It is not far from reason to suppose that another planet colliding with its head emptied of reason, would cause doomsday to erupt. Yes, the Qur’an is a chain, a ‘rope of God,’ binding the earth to the Divine Throne. It preserves the earth more than gravity. Thus, the Risale-i Nur, which is a true and powerful commentary on the Qur’an of Mighty Stature, is a supreme Divine bounty which has been demonstrating its effectiveness for twenty years in this century, an insuppressible miracle of the Qur’an. The Government therefore should not be interfering in it and trying to scare its students away from it, but protecting it and encouraging people to read it.
The Third: In Denizli Court I said the following in connection with all the believers assisting with prayers for forgiveness those who have departed for the past, and their bequeathing good works on their spirits:
When you are asked by millions of believing plaintiffs at the Supreme Tribunal: “Why did you want to ruin with imprisonment and persecution the Risale-i Nur students, who were striving to save the country and nation from anarchy and irreligion and immorality and their compatriots from eternal annihilation, although because of the liberty laws you looked tolerantly on the publications of atheists and communists and political societies that produce anarchists, and did not bother them?” What answer will you and those who want to convict and ruin the Risale-i Nur students, who serve the truths of the Qur’an, give? I am asking you the same thing! I said that to them and those just and fair-minded people acquitted us, demonstrating the fairness of the judicial system.
The Fourth: I was expecting to be taken for interrogation to a place of consultation, in either Ankara or Afyon, where questions would be asked and answered about matters of overriding importance and the Risale-i
