Turkish Historical Society Gets A New President

President of the Turkish Historical Society (TTK) Prof. Dr. Yusuf Halaçoğlu has been removed from his post. Prof. Dr. Ali Binici may take his place.


Head of the Turkish Historical Society (TTK) Prof. Dr. Yusuf Halaçoğlu has been removed from his post. Halaçoğlu is back at his old post at Gazi University in Ankara. Prof. Dr. Ali Birinci is expected to take Halaçoğlu’s place.

According to cnnturk.com, today (July 23) new assignments regarding the posts in some ministries were announced in the Official Gazette. Halaçoğlu’s removal was included. There was no explanation regarding why he was removed from his post.

Halaçoğlu found out about his removal while in holiday in Bodrum. He said that he did not care about the removal, that it was a burden anyways.

“It is normal”

Halaçoğlu said, “This is something that can happen anytime. One day you do your duty for your state, another day you are back to being a scientist. These are normal things. I take it as normal.”

Last year on August 19, Halaçoğlu had participated in a conference at Kayseri in Central Turkey about “Avşar people in Turkish History and Culture” and claimed that Kurds living in Turkey were Turkmen and Kurdish Alevis living in Turkey were Armenian descendants. (NZ/EZÖ/TB)
