Sivas university has announced that the university management will soon change the university’s logo due to its similarity with figures on Fethullah Gulen’s pillows in his house in the United States.
Gulen is a Turkish cleric who has been living in the US since 1999. He has long been sought by the Turkish government for allegedly masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
He denies any involvement.
Turkish authorities have exhibited signs of paranoia since the failed coup, with the İstanbul Metropolitan Municipality in October 2017 changing the names of the 90 streets in the city because they had connotations to brands affiliated with the Gülen movement.
