Ankara: Turkey’s top religious authority Diyanet, said it has published thousands of copies of the Quran translated into Armenian for the first time, as it seeks to reach out to minority
communities. Yuksel Salman, director of Diyanet’s religious publications office, stated that there was a “serious demand” from the small remaining Armenian Christian community in Turkey and the Diaspora for the translation of the Quran into their own language. “In addition to our Armenian citizens, we could not remain indifferent to the interest from the Armenian Diaspora in learning the Quran,” he said.
