In his speech General Manager of Kültür A.Ş, Kemal Kaptaner said “Hoca Ahmet Yesevi's great spiritual heritage has helped the Turkish world not only by enlightening their spiritual world but also by protecting and maintaining the identities of the Turkish people at the same time, thus nullifying efforts to make them forget their nationality and their culture.”
Consul General of Kazakhstan Yerkebulan Sapiev said, "Hoca Ahmet Yesevi, the great intellectual and humanist who has made important contributions to the development and enrichment of our language and culture, as one of the spiritual candles of a vast geography extending from Turkistan to Anatolia and the Balkans, carried the wisdom flag that he got from Arslan Baba and Yusuf Hemedani through Horasan Erenleri to seven climates.”
Ahmet Yesevi University President of the Board of Trustees Musa Yildiz said in his speech: “Hoca Ahmet Yesevi kept a mirror on the Islamic light that the Prophet Muhammad spread from Mecca and reflected it on Anatolia. This mirror was expressed as Hacı Bektaş Veli, Yunus Emre, Mevlana in Anatolia, and Demirci Baba in Balkans. If there is Turkishness in Balkans today or in Anatolia, this is thanks to Hoca Ahmet Yesevi. Mr Yıldız indicated that while remembering Ahmet Yesevi we should also mention Fuat Köprülü the man who introduced him to us and said “Mr Fuat made studies and wrote in his great work about Hoca Ahmet Yesevi and Yunus Emre who followed his footsteps.
