Turkish televangelist Adnan Oktar has blamed the “British deep state” over his detention in Istanbul along with dozens of his followers on July 11, with several charges ranging from sexual abuse to military espionage against him.
Oktar was asked about the charges by journalists as he was taken to Haseki State Hospital in Istanbul for medical checks following his detention at his home early morning. “This is a conspiracy by the British deep state,” he replied as he was escorted from a police car to the hospital.
Turkish police raided 120 residences and offices early July 11 to detain Oktar and 234 of his followers after criminal complaints filed by multiple plaintiffs whose ages range from 11 to 40.
According to a statement by the Istanbul Chief Prosecutor’s Office, Oktar “was caught while he attempted to run away” from the police.
Oktar’s deputy, Tarkan Yavaş, escaped during the police raid, according to security sources who stressed that the suspect was armed.
Some 79 suspects in the case were detained by noon July 11.
Oktar hosts talk show programs on his television channel, A9, on which he discusses Islamic values, sometimes dances with young women he calls “kittens,” and sings with young men whom he calls his “lions.”
In 2006, Oktar wrote the Atlas of Creation under his pen-name Harun Yahya, arguing that Darwin’s theory of evolution is at the root of global terrorism. He has written more than 300 books, translated into 73 languages, his channel says on its website.
He still has got plenty of dull followers from the muslim mass, who say he is "a good source to confront evolution". I rather study and propagate a christian anti evolution website than give this fasiq, ego-loving man a tribune. He should only be called by his real name Adnan Oktar not his famous pen name.
This cannot be undone and I am sure it will be greatly appreciated.
