Reproduced by Australian Atatürk Cultural Centre Inc. 23 Scientific research might be undertaken in order to liberate the Islamic religion from superstition and to bring to light the contemporary essence of Islam, and this will serve to reactivate this process of renaissance. Atatürk acted as an example for many countries seeking independence. A.s the Turkish nation re-evaluates the rationale of Atatürk, thereby striving to surpass the level of contemporary civilisation, other countries may be expected to see the need to adopt, in addition to the example of independence, the rest of the principles of Atatürk which promote secularism and the rights and liberties of the individual. This observation is certainly relevant to both those countries under theocratic rule and also those with Communist or other dictatorial regimes. Gürbüz D. Tüfekçi
