Turkey has seen a sharp rise in religious schooling under reforms that President Tayyip Erdogan casts as a defense against moral decay, but which opponents see as an unwanted drive to shape a more Islamic nation.

Almost a million students are enrolled in “imam hatip” schools this year, up from just 65,000 in 2002 when Erdogan’s Islamist-rooted AK Party first came to power, he told the opening of one of the schools in Ankara last month.

The schools teach boys and girls separately, and give around 13 hours a week of Islamic instruction on top of the regular curriculum, including study of Arabic, the Koran and the life of the Prophet Mohammad.

Yeah
Yo yo what time the plane leaving?
Alright, see you at the airport

I’m leaving, on the next plane
I don’t know when I’ll be back again
Kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you’ll wait for me
Hold me, like you know I’ll never go
Even though you know I will
I’m a travelling man
Moving through places
Space and time
Got a lot of things I got to do
But God willing I’m coming back to you
My baby-boo
I’m a travelling man
Moving through places
Space and time
Gotta lotta things I got to do
But God willing I’m coming back to you
My baby-boo
I’m leaving
