Two banners on the windows of a Turkish tailor in the German city of Gelsenkirchen read: “Pro-FETOs are not allowed” and “No to FETO partners,” in an apparent discrimination against the followers of the Gülen movement, which the Turkish government pinned the blame on for the July 15 coup attempt.
The government also sees the group as a terrorist organization despite the lack of any court verdict to that effect.
A tailor shop called “Express Diktir git!” seems to have already adopted the government language as it refuses to serve the movement members.
FETO is an abbreviation President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan coined to describe the sympathizers of Gulen Movement.
The German shop is only one of the stores that discriminate against the movement.
Earlier, a Konya stallholder hung a banner that read “People affiliated with the Fethullahist Terrorist Organization are not allowed to shop here,” on his sales booth. Meanwhile, Huge banners on the walls of two restaurants in Istanbul read the same discriminatory sentence: “Parallels and sympathizers of parallels not allowed inside the restaurant,” immediately after July 15.
