HDP co-chair Sancar: "The government's language of hatred is responsible for massacre in Konya"

HDP co-chair Mithat Sancar said: "The government's language of hatred and provocation is the main responsible for this massacre."

Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Central Executive Committee (MYK) convened at the Headquarters building for an "urgent meeting" after a Kurdish family was murdered in a racist attack in Konya.

After the meeting, HDP co-chair Mithat Sancar held a press conference.

"This evening, a brutal massacre took place in the Meram district of Konya. 7 Kurdish citizens were brutally murdered. We witnessed one of the most horrific examples of racist attacks that have been going on for a while in Meram. The language of hatred and incitement of the government is the main responsible for this massacre. For a long time, this government has been using a language of hatred that targets the HDP and the Kurds. It makes statements that will lay the ground for massacre policies. We all remember the statement made by the junior partner of the government a few months ago. This language, this mentality, this policy is the product of a mentality that poisons the common life in Turkey and undermines common life."
