The statement of Istanbul Convention came from the Women’s and Democracy Association (KADEM), where President Erdogan’s daughter Sümeyye Erdogan Bayraktar was vice president.
In the 16-item statement, the Istanbul Convention and Law No. 6284 do not declare women as superior sex, but the humiliation that women suffer only because they are women, second class human replacement, forced abortion, female circumcision, the type of sexual abuse and rape they are exposed to more than men. “It provides women with a protection against violence types such as persistent follow-up, domestic violence, forced marriage, forced sterilization”.
Six years after the AKP’s contract, which was put into effect in 2014, the government’s desire to go out came back. With these statements, KADEM has also revealed its clear stance on the Istanbul Convention. In a 16-item statement published by KADEM, he briefly stated the following:
While there is no connection between the Istanbul Convention and the increase in women’s murders, it seems unlikely to understand the announcement of a scapegoat for an arrangement to prevent women’s murders. The convention is the first international document to provide detailed protection in the legal framework against all forms of violence against women. In each article of the contract, it is aimed to help victims and bring the perpetrators to justice.
CHILDREN IS NOT MARRIAGE AT AGE
The convention does not contain any provision to establish a third type or to set or encourage LGBT trends as the norm. To claim that this contract caused the legitimacy of gay orientations was mildly malicious. ‘Gender’ is not homosexuality or genderlessness. Sexual behavior towards children under the age of 15 is covered by crime. They are victimized by early marriages. It was our duty to solve this.
NO ENJOYMENT WITH THE FOLLOWING PERSON
In the statement of KADEM, “Once violence happened, it repeats”. The statement continued as follows: “A reconciliation table where women will sit with the perpetrator of violence is not a realistic discussion ground. The law requires that victims threatened by their family members or spouses ensure their safety.
No contract, the text of the law requires intervention in the family’s privacy. The so-called rape situation is not normal, healthy relationships, but bullying that goes against human dignity and Islamic value judgments. Providing the opportunity for the victims of such bullying to survive violence should not be interfering with the families’ bedrooms, but to help the oppressed with the equivalent of Islamic teaching. ”
