A woman was detained in the Turkish capital Ankara after sharing a photo of her feet standing on pages of the Quran via her Twitter account.
The Ankara Public Prosecutor’s Office took action against the Twitter account @kedibiti after Ankara Mayor Melih Gökçek, who is known as an active Twitter user, filed a complaint about the account, also alleging that it had “insulted the president and the government.”
Prosecutors discovered that the Twitter account’s owner was a 36-year-old Istanbul resident, identified only as G.Y. The Istanbul Police Department called her to the police station, and she arrived at the station in Istanbul’s Gayrettepe neighborhood, where she reportedly explained that she was an atheist.
She was released after questioning, but a lawsuit has been opened against her on charges of “triggering hatred in society” and “slandering.”
