Mustafa Kemal Pascha, seit 1934 mit dem Nachnamen Atatürk , war der Begründer der Republik Türkei und von 1923 bis 1938 erster Präsident der nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg aus dem Osmanischen Reich hervorgegangenen modernen Republik.

Seine Verdienste als Offizier bei der Verteidigung der Halbinsel Gallipoli 1915 gegen alliierte Truppen, welche die Dardanellen unter ihre Kontrolle bringen wollten, und ab 1921 der Abwehrkampf gegen die nach Anatolien vorgedrungenen Griechen haben ihn zur Symbolfigur türkischen Selbstbehauptungswillens und Nationalbewusstseins werden lassen. Als Machtpolitiker, der die Modernisierung seines Landes nach westlichem Vorbild beharrlich vorantrieb, hat er mit der Abschaffung von Sultanat und Kalifat sowie mit weitreichenden gesellschaftlichen Reformen einen in dieser Form einmaligen Staatstypus geschaffen. Darauf beruhen – trotz teilweiser Kontroversen über sein Wirken – die personenkultartige Verehrung, die ihm in der Türkei bis heute entgegengebracht wird, und die Unangefochtenheit des ihm 1934 vom türkischen Parlament verliehenen Nachnamens Atatürk .

„Mankind is a single body and each nation a part of that body.“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: Mankind is a single body and each nation a part of that body. We must never say "What does it matter to me if some part of the world is ailing?" If there is such an illness, we must concern ourselves with it as though we were having that illness. As quoted by Paul Wolfowitz in an address to the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, Washington, D.C. (13 March 2002) http://www.defenselink.mil/speeches/speech.aspx?speechid=198

„Those who use religion for their own benefit are detestable.“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: Religion is an important institution. A nation without religion cannot survive. Yet it is also very important to note that religion is a link between Allah and the individual believer. The brokerage of the pious cannot be permitted. Those who use religion for their own benefit are detestable. We are against such a situation and will not allow it. Those who use religion in such a manner have fooled our people; it is against just such people that we have fought and will continue to fight. Know that whatever conforms to reason, logic, and the advantages and needs of our people conforms equally to Islam. If our religion did not conform to reason and logic, it would not be the perfect religion, the final religion. As quoted in Kemalizm, Laiklik ve Demokrasi [Kemalism, Laicism and Democracy] (1994) by Ahmet Taner Kışlalı

„I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea“

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea. He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap. My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will; every man can follow his own conscience, provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him against the liberty of his fellow-men. Quoted in Atatürk: The Biography of the founder of Modern Turkey, by Andrew Mango; "In a book published in 1928, Grace Ellison quotes [Atatürk], presumably in 1926-27", Grace Ellison Turkey Today (London: Hutchinson, 1928)

—  Мустафа Кемаль Ататюрк
Context: The heroes who shed their blood and lost their lives on this country's soil! You are in the soil of a friendly country now. Therefore rest in peace.
