Fatih Municipality organized an iftar event in collaboration with the Istanbul Chamber of Hairdressers Istanbul and hairdressers and their families attended the event. Organized in Mimar Sinan Stadium, thousands of hairdressers and their families attending the iftar program enjoyed breaking their fast together at the established tables.

Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir attended the iftar program as well. Visiting the tables of the attendants, Mayor Demir had pictures taken with the hairdressers upon their request.

Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir mentioned that he was happy for breaking his fast with the hairdressers and said, "Today we made an amazing iftar in Mimar Sinan Stadium with the Chamber of Hairdressers inviting the hairdressers in Istanbul on the iftar evening of this holy month of Ramadan. Our hairdressers attended our iftar with their families and kids. I'd like to thank to Şükrü Akyüz, Chairman of Chamber of Hairdressers and all attendants."


Mentioning that hairdressers play an important part in the society, Mayor Demir continued: "Because they still continue the ahi community tradition which tends to be forgotten. What is that? It is the relationship of master, apprentice and journeyman. They are unique craftsmen who not only carry out their profession with their intellect but they also keep their conscience above their reason and develop their profession with morals and transfer this to following generations via master and apprentice relationship. This is important for us too. We have organized the first event of this kind and I hope we did well, hopefully this will continue. During Ramadan we try to spend time with all segments of the society to the extent possible. We were with over 12,000 persons in Sultanahmet on the first day. We spent time with people from coming every part of the world. In the evenings, we spend time with our people in various areas of Fatih, in its squares and large parks. Today we are spending our time with hairdressers. Hopefully we'll spend time with all segments of society and be together with the residents of Fatih in all neighborhoods of Fatih until the end of Ramadan.

Şükrü Akyüz, Chairman of Istanbul Chamber of Hairdressers said: "We are happy to be hosting our craftsmen with their families on such an important and sacred month. I'd like to extend my thanks to our Fatih Mayor Mustafa Demir for holding this beautiful organization."
