Preachers give religious advice in doomsday village Şirince
Hürriyet photoThree men in cloaks and turbans have been observed providing religious advice in İzmir’s Şirince village, which has gained recent notoriety for those who believe it will survive the alleged Dec. 21 doomsday predicted by the Maya, daily Hürriyet has reported.
"Don't believe in lies. No body else than Him [God] can know when doomsday will be," the men reportedly told locals and residents in Şirince.
The men are believed to be Turkish members of Tablighi Jamaat (Society for Spreading Faith), a worldwide movement that began on the Subcontinent in the 1920s and works to bring Muslims closer to religion.
