Ahmet Bey (Hakan) is doing what is necessary”.

Hakan used the following statements in his article titled “I have always done what is necessary, I will, I will”:

“In our interview with President Erdoğan on the Kanal D / CNN Türk joint broadcast … The subject came to the opposition for a while. When persistent questions were asked about the opposition … Erdogan, laughing and showing that he was joking … He made a sentence like ‘he’s doing it’. Because I didn’t think that a joke would be this big, kicked, branched out… I didn’t feel the need to say anything about the subject during the program. They did not stop.

What I wrote is clear. I have never entered into a fierce opposition criticism by pretending to be a representative of the ruling party. My criticisms of the opposition are mostly constructive criticisms. By the way, I have to say this: From the first day I started my writing life until today… I haven’t written a single letter that I don’t believe in. I always did what my conscience required, I do, I do, I will. Based on my conscience, I didn’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care, I don’t care for who I write.”
