Turkish rector sends 1,000 letters to universities all around the world on Rohingya crisis

Turkish rector’s letter about persecuted Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar received more than a hundred replies from around the world, he said Wednesday.

Batman University’s Rector Prof. Aydın Durmuş sent letters to 1,000 rectors in several countries on Sept. 9.

The letters were written in six different languages: English, German, French, Russian, Arabic and Turkish.

Durmuş told Anadolu Agency that some of the letters he sent were to rectors of the Cambridge and Oxford universities in the U.K., the Johns Hopkins and Michigan universities in the U.S., the Kyoto University in Japan, the Tallinn University Of Technology in Estonia, the Central European University in Hungary, the University Of Bremen in Germany and the National Research University Higher School Of Economics in Russia.

Some of the replies were received by post, while others were emailed, he said.

He added he was impressed by a letter from Prof. Joachim Hornegger, rector of Germany’s Friedrich-Alexander Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg, who urged universities to speak up against the human rights abuse of the Rohingya.
