A ruler should be loved by his people and behave as a father of the nation

A ruler should be loved by his people and should behave as a father to his nation. Turkish PM, Tayyip Erdogan is one such leader. For all the snakes we have, May Allah give us one Erdogan. He is available to his people, even to children for their homework! Iran's Ahmedinejad is same to his people. Palestine's Hania is also such a dervesh.

An 8-year-old primary school student, Hale Hancherkıran, took the opportunity on Tuesday to interview Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan for a homework assignment.

Hancherkıran, a second grader at Ankara's Turhan Feyzioglu Primary School, stopped Erdogan before his party's parliamentary group meeting on Tuesday and requested an interview for her assignment, titled "An Interview with a Politician."

Erdogan accepted the girl's request. While he spoke at the parliamentary group meeting, Hancherkıran listened to his entire speech from just behind the lectern.

Erdogan later granted the girl an interview in his office.

"How many children do you have, Uncle Tayyip?" was the girl's first question. Erdogan replied: "Four. Two sons and two daughters."

Hancherkıran asked Erdogan how it feels to be a prime minister. Erdogan said being a prime minister brings many responsibilities, and that it is a very important job which gives one the opportunity to serve one's nation and homeland.

The girl also wanted to know how Erdogan manages to remain energetic despite his busy schedule.

"I don't have any bad habits. I don't drink alcohol and don't smoke. My only concern is performing my job," he said.

To another question on whether Erdogan can allocate some of his time for his children, the prime minister said his children are adults and three of them are married.

"I have three grandchildren. Two of them are boys, while one is a girl," he added.

The girl, who was accompanied by her father, was given a doll as a present from the prime minister.


InshAllah, Allah will bless us too with such a just and benevolent ruler. But that will not be through this filthy democracy driven by wealth, media and filth. Sabr. Khair inshAllah.
