Turkey’s ‘Terrorism’ Blame Game Threatens to Destabilize Society

Turkey’s new policy of revoking citizenship of people deemed “terrorists” may only further destabilize society and lead to civil war, a Kurdish activist told Radio Sputnik.

The Turkish government’s new initiative to strip citizenship from people suspected of supporting “terrorism” could further destabilize the country’s society, Kani Xulam, Kurdish activist and director at the American Kurdish information network, told Radio Sputnik.

Turkey will work on a new rule to strip citizenship from Turks found to be supporting terrorism, the justice minister said on Wednesday, a day after President Tayyip Erdogan said he wanted such a measure. Earlier, Erdogan called to expand the definition of terrorism to journalists, activists and others who “exploit their positions, pens and titles and put them at terrorists’ disposal.”

“Now, he wants to say that anyone who challenges him, anybody who goes off the script, is going to be stripped of their citizenship. This is a recipe for civil war, conflict and instability,” Xulam told Radio Sputnik.
