Turkish President condemned for child martyrdom comments

She has a Turkish flag in her pocket too… If she’s martyred, they’ll lay a flag on her, God willing,’ he said during the congress in the southern town of Kahramanmaras on Saturday.

‘She is ready for everything, isn’t she?’ The girl replied: ‘Yes.’

Mr Erdogan then kissed her face and let her go.

The president’s comments were immediately condemned on twitter – one person likened them to child abuse while another sad the president was wrong to says ‘God willing’ to the death of a child.

The president’s actions were also criticised by the pro-Kurdish Peoples’ Democratic Party (HDP) that opposes Ankara’s operation in the Afrin region.

‘The mindset that abuses children by promising them death will lose,’ the party said in a tweet.
