In a backlash against Turkey's new education program, which is accused of promoting Islamic teaching, in Aydin, a Turkish citizen converted to Christianity so that his child could be exempted from compulsory religious education.

He thus expressed his dissatisfaction with the new curriculum

“I converted to another religion because the Ministry of Education ignores secularism, scientific principles and Atatürk and because of the pressure of compulsory religious education. I changed my religion to condemn compulsory religious education. Only Christian children and Jewish children are exempted from religious studies," said the Turkish father who found an original way to react to the deviation from the principles of secularism.
