Criticism from Yalçın to the Global System
Criticizing globalization and its effects, Yalçın said: "the effects of globalization are overwhelming; supporters of liberalism have declared a real war to all workers, wherever they are, by breaking states and systems of protection and thereby promoting the rise of extremism and fundamentalism on all sides. The traps of globalization, a source of immense profits, are those of a logic of predatory development of both human beings and planetary resources. ", he said.Yalçın: Alija izetbegović is a souce of inspiration for us
Later on Yalçın stated that “The struggle and determination that Aliya has put forward is an example not only for the people of Bosnia but for the entire Islamic world. Alija izetbegović is a source of inspiration for us. Bosnia and Alija always had great importance for Necmettin Erbakan and his colleagues, they have a very precious place for us too, "he said.
