“Upon arrival at Ataturk International Airport in Istanbul, they were all escorted to a room and their passport confiscated by Turkish police. When they enquired why they were clamped in a dirty room, the police said they are students of a terrorist organisation.

They offered to transfer them to government schools but on the condition that we will pay same fees as private universities.”

The Fathi University is among the 2099 schools, dormitories and universities shut down in the wake of the July 15th failed coupin Turkey. The Turkish authorities said the schools and universities were terrorist schools because they have links with Islamic scholar Fethullah Gulen, whom the Turkish government had accused of being the mastermind of the failed coup attempt.
