Turkish student filled with respect towards Sevan Nishanyan promises
to fight for his freedom

11:23, 29 April, 2014

YEREVAN, APRIL 29, ARMENPRESS. The Turkish student promises to fight
for the freedom of the Armenian journalist, linguist Sevan Nishanyan
imprisoned in Turkey. "As a young student from Turkey, I am personally
interested in Sevan Nishanyan's case, as to me he is the most
intelligent and educated person, whom I have ever met.

His life story is very impressive, what he has done is simply
incredible. He has made great efforts in the field of tourism in
Turkey, carried out activities to compile an etymological dictionary
of the Turkish language and finally to map the villages. In Turkey we
have villages, whose names have been changed by the Government, since
they had Armenian or Kurdish names in the past. Sevan Nishanyan began
to study the names of the places and finally created a thick book,
which can be used by all the people, who are interested in the matter"
` in an interview with "Armenpress" told the sociology student of
Istanbul BoÄ?aziçi University.

In his words Sevan Nisanyan is one of those intellectuals, who
challenge the controversial religious matters and the boundaries, the
red lines, drawn by the Kemalists and the nationalists. "In Turkey the
freedom of speech is a problem. I really pay attention to the case of
Sevan Nishanyan, I respect him, and I want to organize a campaign for
his release" - added the student.

It is noteworthy, that the student fixed the picture of the Armenian
intellectual on his bag and walked around Turkey.

The Turkish student arrived in Armenia on April 25 in the delegation
of the Turkish and European antiracist organizations. On April 24 they
attended the commemoration ceremony for the victims of the Armenian
Genocide in Istanbul, and on April 26 they visited Tsitsernakaberd
Memorial.
