Turkey to open mosques 'in every university'

Turkey to open mosques 'in every university'

Turkey's top religious body said on Friday that there are plans to build a mosque in every state university, adding to concerns over what critics say are creeping efforts to force Islamic values on the society.

"Mosques are under construction in over 80 universities. Fifteen of them have been opened for prayers and we will open at least 50 more in 2015," said Mehmet Gormez, the head of Turkey's Religious Affairs Directorate, known as Diyanet in Turkish.

"There are 20 million young people in our country and we would like to reach out to each one of them," he told the official Anatolia news agency.
