The Turkish government had accused Gulen of organizing the failed coup in July past year.
Turkey is commemorating the July 15 failed coup attempt one year after the deadly incident as the unique fight against coup plotters to protect Turkish democracy is being remembered on every platform, including social media.
Many originally welcomed Mr. Erdogan's harsh measures to quash the coup and rid the country of supporters of Mr. Gulen, who has steadfastly denied charges that he and his followers orchestrated the failed putsch.

It states that the dismissed employees are people, "who it's been determined have been acting against the security of the state or are members of a terrorist organization".
Erdogan insisted that "only two" of these supposed journalists behind bars are valid press card holders. Speaking to BBC, Erdoğan said that Turkey would remain "loyal to its word" reiterating the country's wish to join the union."If the EU, bluntly says, "We will not be able to accept Turkey into the EU" this will relax us".
Carl Schlyter, one of the lawmakers who filed the complaint, said he hoped his counterparts in other European countries would follow suit. The applications were submitted, however, they did not allow the president of Turkey, they did not allow the ministers.
The president said nobody in Turkey had suffered due to state of emergency. When we built the Justice and Development Party in southeastern Anatolia, we were asked to cancel the state of emergency.
"Because counter terrorism is not local, it is the implementation of an global agreement".
