Turkish Cultural Centre (TCC) and its members are very saddened with the news of Singapore's founding father and its first Prime Minister Mr Lee Kuan Yew's death. We would like to express our heartfelt condolences to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong and his family and to the whole nation. Dear Sir Mr Lee Kuan Yew, may you rest in peace.
No doubt Mr. Lee is Singapore and Singapore is him. Without Mr Lee Singapore would not be what it is today.
Mr Lee Kuan Yew's vision on the importance of education; inter-cultural and inter-faith dialogue; success in Singapore's economy are just a few of the great achievements which TCC and the Turkish community in Singapore has learned a lot from.
While mourning over his passing, we feel proud together with our fellow Singaporeans for the legacy and the great Singapore Mr Lee left behind.
Younger generations should learn a lot from the experiences and hard times that Mr Lee and Singapore went through and continue to work hard to bring Singapore forward. Majulah Singapura!
As the whole nation mourns and also as a mark of respect to Mr Lee Kuan Yew we have postponed our activities this week.
On behalf of Turkish Cultural Centre and its members;
