University students bring immorality to southeastern city, Green Crescent official says
Hürriyet PhotoUniversity students have brought immorality to the southeastern province of Mardin by hanging around in close embraces and kissing each other in public, The Turkish Green Crescent’s (Yeşilay) City Chief Lütfü Günlüoğlu said, as reported by daily Milliyet today.
“Mardin started to develop day by day [after a university was opened in the city]. However, this development brought along many immoralities,” Günlüğüoğlu reportedly said. “Girls and boys began to hang around hand in hand, arm in arm and in a close embrace and make love immodestly in front of people in terms of freedom and civilization.”
“Immodest scenes among youths in Ankara, Istanbul and İzmir have begun to be seen frequently in Mardin too,” the official said.
Günlüoğlu has called authorities to take the necessary measures immediately in order to prevent such behaviors, which may lead to moral corruption in the city, warning that the situation was moving toward actual adultery.
