Johannes Avetaranian (Erzurum, Ottoman Empire, June 30, 1861 - Wiesbaden, Weimar Republic, nowadays Germany on December 11, 1919), born Muhammad Shukri (Turkish: Mehmet Sükri), was, according to his autobiography, a Turkish descendent of the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Avetaranian was originally a mullah in Turkey who converted from Islam to Christianity, and later became a missionary for the Swedish Mission Covenant Church in Southern Xinjiang (1892-1938). He translated the New Testament into the Uyghur language. He preached Christianity in Xinjiang and at a Swedish Protestant mission. (DBpedia
