Biographical Data :

Name :Mehmet Akif Ersoy
Period :1873 - 1936
Biographical detail : The great Turkish poet.

He composed the lyrics of what became the Turkish national anthem in 1922.

He was a modernist who criticised fellow Muslims for venerating the Qur’an, but failing to apply their reason to it. Ersoy left his country soon after being disappointed by Ataturk’s attitude towards religious policies after the victory of the latter.
