Turkish university destroys books written by Gülen, supporters

Turkey’s Sivas University pulled off the shelf of its libraries all copies of the books written by Fethullah Gülen and his alleged supporters and destroyed them via a shredder.

The state-run Sivas University recalled all books, magazines and other written publications by Gülen and his sympathizers from all its libraries and destroyed them in a ceremony-like meeting, on July 27.Early this week, Education Ministry was reported to have decided to destroy textbooks written by the alleged followers of Gülen.
