Alevis protest door markings in southeast Turkey

Markings that were found on the doors of Alevis’ houses in the eastern province of Adıyaman are mere “child’s play” and not a premonition of an attack, Interior Minister İdris Naim Şahin has said.

But Republican People’s Party (CHP) deputy Sabahat Akkiray said the government had the responsibility to protect Alevis.

“They are frightened and waiting in turns night and day. Alevis have been through several massacres in recent history of the country. A new massacre, possibility like [past] ones in Kahramanmaraş, Sivas or Çorum, is on their minds,” Akkiray said.

Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdağ commented on the incident, saying, “Whoever committed this atrociousness, I condemn it.”

“We saw the same in the provinces of Erzincan, Kahramanmaraş and Sivas. We have to take seriously what happened in Adıyaman – we cannot evaluate it as ‘child’s play.’ The tension in Turkey is increasing. Some dark forces may try to create turmoil in Turkey. I am calling on the prosecutors and the local authorities to do their duties and reveal the actors of the incident,” Dinçer said.

The doors of a number of houses belonging to members of the Alevi community in Adıyaman were marked with crosses by unknown people, CHP deputy Hüseyin Aygün announced on his Facebook account on Feb 29.

A similar method was used to mark the houses of Alevis prior to the Maraş Massacre of 1978, in which at least 105 people were killed.

Crosses on Alevi doors ?child?s play,? minister says - RIGHTS

How sad, Turkey is in a terrible situation and its citizens are not being protected.
