Posters decrying the national lottery as sinful and New Year's as
Posters hung at a university in Karaman have elicited a reaction prior to
New Year's. At various spots on the Yunus Emre Campus of Karamanoğlu
Mehmet Bey University in Karaman, posters opposing both New Year's and
the national lottery have appeared, bearing the signature of the university's
Health, Culture and Sports Department.
Meanwhile, the line stretches out in Istanbul for national lottery
The posters read: "Moslems don't celebrate New Year's" and "The national
lottery is sinful". A university spokesman stated that "as long as there's
nothing illegal mentioned, the university approves this kind of poster."
