Yunus Emre is from Karaman.
Within the scope of UNESCO activities, we invite all our authorized institutions, especially our Ministry of Tourism and Turkish History Institution, to our Karaman, the hometown of Yunus Emre. Studies should be done and continued in Karaman. For a situation that develops in the scientific dimension and historical process in Karaman, the studies should start from Karaman and continue from Karaman. We should protect Yunus Emre together as our Governor and Mayor of Karaman, all the people of Karaman, bureaucrats from Karaman and those who govern Karaman. The work done by the Ministry of Tourism with UNESCO through Eskişehir is unacceptable. The studies should be taken to Karaman by intervening urgently.
