Turkey: Reason for concern, Erdogan’s drastic measures of cleansing of coup plotters is a prime nacessity

(Ameenur Rasheed, London)

Recent appraisal of the events in Turkey prompts the right minded people of the world to think why it is appropriate for Erdogan and AKP’s regime in Ankara to take drastic measures to root out the elements of coup plotters embedded all over.

Turkish Chief of General Staff General Hulusi Akar was held at gunpoint and ordered by his private secretary to sign a coup declaration, as all force commanders were taken hostage by their secretaries, aides and guards on the night of the coup attempt, sources have claimed.

The details of the events and incidents that occurred late on July 15 began to emerge with security sources revealing how the force commanders were held captive by pro-coup forces, which turned out to be officers including close aides and secretaries of top ranking soldiers.

According to the claims, Akar’s secretary, Major General Mehmet Dişli, along with aides and secretaries who sided with the coup plotters, initially ordered Akar to sign the declaration and read it out to the Turkish public. Facing Akar’s firm rejection, Dişli held Akar at gunpoint and attempted to physically force him to comply with the order by cinching a belt around his neck, the sources claimed.

Akar still refused to read out the declaration and Brigadier General Mehmet Partigöç again tried to convince the chief of general staff, saying: “Commander, sign the declaration, you will see very good things will happen.” Akar refused this demand as well.

Meanwhile, sources also claimed Deputy Chief of Turkish General Staff General Yaşar Güler, Chief of the Army General Salih Zeki Çolak and Air Force Commander General Abidin Ünal, who was attending a wedding at the time, were all reportedly held captive by their aides and guards. After the attempt was taken under control, both Dişli and Partigöç were arrested.

“It was around 9:30 p.m. We were working at the General Staff [headquarters]. Voices started to come from the commander’s floor. I quickly went up to the commander’s floor. There were soldiers from the special forces. First, they said ‘there was a drill.’ The commander’s Special Secretary Major General Mehmet Dişli came out and said, ‘Take him too,’ indicating me. I was laid down on the floor. My phones were taken. They tied my hands, feet and mouth. Shouts were heard from the commander’s room. All the aides and guards who were closest to the commander were on the coup plotters’ side. When I lifted my head, I noticed those who were positioned under me were with the coup plotters as well,” said a source who was present at the command post on the night of the coup attempt and who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Besides these domestic evil elements within the Turkey, the global secularist media operatives block is orchestrating campaign against the current leadership to tarnish their image and discredit the ruling AK party.

French leader Hollande has recently blamed the regime for its drastic measures whereas they failed to condemn the plotters.

The entire secularist block of the world are implicitly united to overthrow the AKP regime and to hinder its neo renaissance process after the abolishment of thr ottoman empire many decades ago in 1923. The situation places requirements on us to rally behind the current regime without any reservation to defeat the global conspiracy.
