Pole of historians, great value, Halil İnalcık; “In the end, I was able to squeak the protective, civil, great culture of Turkish Empire through”
Capital International Peace, Brotherhood, Platform’s press agent Tülay Erim Çömez presented the award of Professor Halil İnalcık at the ceremony.
Halil İnalcık spoke at the award ceremony: “I have had a goal throughout my life time, to serve humanity, my nation. We are a nation that ruled the world in history. We are the descendants of a race that established empires. The tribes which used to be under our rule are separate, independent countries of today. When they look at their history they come up with the reality they have reached today. In history Spain was a land of Muslims, the Caliphate of Muslim Umayyad. But when we look at today, there isn’t any Muslim there. Almost all Christian people living in Balkans have established their own state. Who protected and brought them to these days was the Ottoman Empire. They never accept nor verbalize this fact. All my scientific efforts have been for telling the truth under the objective light. All my books have been translated into Balkan languages in all over Europe and Balkans. Moreover they have been translated into Greek, Ukrainian and other languages. I think that, in the end I am able to establish the protecting, civilized, high culture of the Turkish Empire. I wouldn’t want that anyone would think I’m boasting. My all life time has passed working in the dark, dusty archives. I spent all my life to explain and tell this civilization, culture to the world. This plaque is a proof the efforts being done got out. Today I’m proud. I receive this plaque as a result of my pride. I’m grateful to you, thank you very much.”
