Turkey’s newly introduced school curriculum ditches Darwin’s theory of evolution in favour of teaching the basic principles of jihad, albeit in a more “patriotic” way.

The move has already caused an outrage as fears are arising that Erdogan might be using his newly acquired political powers to get rid of the country’s secular foundations. 

The teachers in Turkey and their official representatives from the Teachers Union, are far from happy with the government’s latest decision.

Negative reactions were also triggered by members of the opposition political parties as they fear the move will have a rather negative impact on Turkish education in general. 

Ismet Yilmaz, the education minister of the ruling Erdogan regime, said the controversial decision to remove Darwin’s theory was based on the fact that the theory itself is “insignificant.”

”It is our duty to fix what has been perceived as wrong. This is why the Islamic law class and basic fundamental religion lectures will include lessons on jihad”, Yilmaz was heard saying, adding that the real meaning of jihad is to love your nation.

The new curriculum, coming in effect within the start of the 2017-2018 school year, will oblige Turkish students to familiarize themselves with the basic concepts of Jihad.

Although the term “Jihad” is often associated with waging holy war against the non-Muslims, while using very violent means, some Islamic scholar also interpret the word as the one’s internal struggle against the challenges he faces in everyday life.

The theory of evolution is known to be rejected by both, Christian and Muslim creationists.

Some fear the move will go hand in hand with Erdogan’s aggressive expansionist policies towards Greece, Iraq and Syria.
