Fear of Islam has spread into the hearts of nearly two-thirds of humanity through global political actors, Turkish Religious Affairs Directorate head Mehmet Görmez said today.

"Islamophobia has become an illness in the hearts of two-thirds of humanity. We are facing different kinds of challenges against Islam,” Görmez said in a meeting with religious officials in the western province of İzmir.

Görmez also said mass media had taken over all young people, leading to a change in the language and understanding of their audiences. “We can’t continue with the definitions from 10 years ago,” he added, signaling a change in the institution’s teachings.
