Explosion of Meanings: Complexities Surrounding the Multiple Meanings of Martyrdom in the Context of Turkey
This article critiques the erosion in the meaning of martyrdom through the attribution of diverse connotations to the word by different parties for diverse aims in the political context of Turkey. It seeks to question the normalization, and justifications that arrive with the construction of knowledge through discourses on martyrdom and critiques the irony between beyond earthly promises of martyrdom and the earthly decision of rewarding martyrdom.
