Within 48 hours of his release on Thursday, January 24, the Erdogan regime re-arrested the leader of the Furkan Islamic movement in Turkey, Sheikh Alparslan Kuytul. He was arrested one year ago.
The arrest of Sheikh Kuytul is another manifestation of Erdogan’s duplicity. It will add to the growing cracks among AKP’s primary constituency and increase the chances of internal destabilization within Turkey.
The ruling AKP party in Turkey stands exposed. Its Islamic credentials are suspect. There is, however, a genuine Islamic movement in Turkey: Furkan Vakfi. It needs to be better known.
