The country’s authorities are seriously concerned about the influence of the Turkish religious and political movement “Nurdzhular,” which is the main sponsor of Turkish schools and high schools in the CIS countries.
On the first of August in Turkmenistan close Turkmen-Turkish schools operating in the country since the early nineties. In Ashgabat, there was only one school number 57 named. Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. A new set of the school discontinued, however, according to teachers and students will present an opportunity to complete training. In the provinces they were closed altogether. In the city of Turkmenbashi, for example, the local Turkmen-Turkish school has become the usual secondary school № 5 in Nebitdag – № 22 in Turkmenabad – № 42.
Turkmen-Turkish schools are schools that offer quality education. Graduates of these schools are fluent in Turkish and English, not to mention the serious training in mathematics, physics, chemistry and other subjects.
First opened in each regional center to the same school, and later in other large cities in provinces. In 1994, opened in Ashgabat International Turkmen-Turkish University, but across the country have opened additional centers for Turkish “Bashkent.” After years of work in Turkmenistan through these institutions have been thousands of young citizens of Turkmenistan, mostly boys.
However, we know that in addition to quality education, these schools actively, but covertly promote the ideology of Pan-Turkic – Turkic-speaking union of nations under the auspices of Turkey. In the CIS countries, this ideology is held movement “Nurdzhular”, his followers are also called “Nur”, derived from the name of the founder of Said Nursi. In Russia, for example, is considered an extremist movement, and all Turkish schools were closed early in the new century.
Graduates, the most deeply absorbed the Turkish values, ideas of moderate Islam, school heads sent to continue their studies at universities in Turkey. To do this, the Turkish government has allocated a special quota. The boys in higher education, many people continue to learn from the master’s and postgraduate courses. In Ankara and Istanbul has been the whole diaspora of young scientists – people of Turkmenistan are hundreds of people. After training, already at home with each other, they prefer to communicate in a foreign language, for drinking and non-religious people are scornful, contemptuous of women and their sisters, wives and daughters to wear hijab.
In the learning process in Turkey, some young people do not take “the playing field” and literally run away from their patrons, mostly in the United States. Spoke with one such young man on condition of anonymity.
“Later, the most loyal and ideologically processed alumni representatives of the movement” Nurdzhular “themselves” pushing “, including bribery, in responsible positions in key ministries and departments of Turkmenistan – Migration Service, Service for Drug Control, Ministry of Defense, National Security, the Interior Ministry … “- he says.
According to him, among law enforcement officials, there are people who have graduated, for example, the Military Academy in Ankara.
“The policy on the introduction of its people in law enforcement agencies of Turkmenistan has already produced results – the shortage of qualified local staff most of the staff of the Migration Service and the Drug Enforcement has over education in Turkish schools of different levels”, – said the source.
A recent graduate of the Turkish school in Turkmenbashi, said that the last couple of years, the number of Turkish teachers in Turkmenistan has become much smaller.
“We and our teachers openly called Wahhabis, and called the local authorities, security forces” – he said.
