        Industry and Islam

        Kayseri is a city in the center of Turkey that has recently experienced a wave of business development. Although Turkey’s founder, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, thought that secular values were the key to his country’s development, the Kayseri Industrial Zone has been the site of great prosperity for a group of devout Muslim businessmen. These entrepreneurs helped establish a network of businesses centering around a 6,000-person mosque. In this video from Wide Angle, visit the Kayseri Industrial Zone and meet its president, Ahmet Hasyuncu.
