Pro-Erdogan journalist says killing Gülen followers, even their babies, a religious obligation


Date posted: May 8, 2017

Hüseyin Adalan, a journalist working for a number of pro-government media outlets, has said, swearing to God, it is a religious obligation to kill all followers of the Gülen movement and even their babies.

Writing from his Twitter account on Sunday, Adalan said, “I swear to God it is ‘wajib,’ an Islamic term meaning religious obligation, to kill those who show mercy to the followers of the Gülen movement and even the babies of the Gülen followers should be killed.”

“The great Turkish state should demonstrate its enormous power,” he wrote in his controversial tweet, which attracted widespread criticism on social media.

Adalan writes columns for the pro-government Yeni Söz, Milat and İstiklal newspapers.

It is very common for the pro-government journalists in Turkey to employ hate speech against the followers of the Gülen movement, which is accused by the Turkish government of masterminding a failed coup attempt on July 15.

The failed military coup attempt killed over 240 people. Immediately after the putsch, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government along with Turkey’s autocratic President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement despite the lack of any evidence to that effect.

Fethullah Gülen, who inspired the movement, strongly denied having any role in the failed coup and called for an international investigation into it, but President Erdoğan — calling the coup attempt “a gift from God” — and the government initiated a widespread purge aimed at cleansing sympathizers of the movement from within state institutions, dehumanizing its popular figures and putting them in custody.

Inability to generate values

Many are quick to note that Turkey does not have a worldwide brand. It is true that this country, with a population of about 70 million, has virtually no world-class brand. Some people are trying to destroy the few brands it does have (such as Turkish schools — which are run by Turkish entrepreneurs inspired by the ideas of well-respected Turkish-Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen).
