Today, Beşiktaş SK played a league game against Kayseri FC at Vodafone Arena in Istanbul. Before the game, thousands of Beşiktaş fans showed their support to the secularist system. Fans shouted as “Turkey is secular and will remain as secular”.
The same slogan was chanted three days ago by Galatasaray fans in a basketball game.
Last week, some government authorities gave speeches
criticizing secularism and defending a religious system in Turkey. Turkish people showed a huge reaction to these declarations. AK government have retreated because of the reaction of people.
