Teacher arrested after repairman found Gülen’s audio CD in computer


Date posted: June 22, 2017

A Samsun teacher, identified as Osman K., was detained after a repairman found in his computer a CD that features speeches by Fethullah Gulen.

Osman K., asked a repairman in Samsun’s Ilkadim district to take out an audio CD jammed in his laptop’s CD-ROM; and left the store. When the repairman found out that the jammed CD bears Gulen’s name on it, he reported the teacher to police as a Gulenist. The audio CD, titled Kalbin Miraci, featured faith-based sermons Gulen delivered at mosques in Turkey in the past.

Police detained Osman K. when he returned to the repair store to take his computer back.

A teacher with 23 years of experience in education business, Osman K. was earlier left unemployed when the government, over Gulen links, closed the private school he used to work at.

Already dismissed from his job under a post-coup government decree over similar charges, Osman K. was referred the court after detention; and the court put him in pre-trial arrest on charge of membership to a terrorist organization.

Turkish government accuses Gulen of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt while the US-based cleric denies involvement.

Turkish government has detained more than 120,000 people and arrested some 50,000 over links to Gulen movement since last summer.

Earlier, police in many provinces displayed Gülen’s books they seized as terror evidence.

Meanwhile, President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, on multiple occasions, called on Turkish people to report followers of movement in their surroundings to the police and prosecutors’ offices so that they can be prosecuted for their links to the movement.

Did Erdogan STAGE the coup?

‘Government should be won through a process of free and fair elections, not force,” Gulen said. “I pray to God for Turkey, for Turkish citizens, and for all those currently in Turkey that this situation is resolved peacefully and quickly.’ Gulen sharply rejected any responsibility: ‘As someone who suffered under multiple military coups during the past five decades, it is especially insulting to be accused of having any link to such an attempt.

Fears for Gulen-inspired Turkish schools in Pakistan grow

Maarif, the foundation that Pak-Turk schools to be transferred to, was set up by Turkish parliament and is an education foundation based on divisive political ideology and racism. It is founded by the Justice and Development Party (AKP) of Turkey to consign AKP’s partisan mentality and political ideology to Islamic and developing countries.

Erdoğan’s AKP runs out of steam, then what?

We are now in the midst of a system crisis with unprecedented dimensions and unforeseen consequences. Turkey’s fiercely embattled Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is betting whatever the country has gained over the past years on a game of prospects that will either lead to a downfall, or turn the stakes in such favor for himself so as to speed up his irresistible rise to untouchability.
