Aleviism passes through the father's blood. My daughter is Alevi, according to Mustafa and according to all the Alevis whom I spoke to. Even if she lives far from Turkey and is not raised as an Alevi, she's still an Alevi child. I hope this means she will be able to play a musical instrument, preferably the saz or the baglama.
