Turkish dailies on Tuesday covered the TV series "Muhtesem Yuzyil" that scenarists do not reflect the reality and a fast breaking meal of Muharrem month at the Presidential Residence. The Anadolu Agency does not verify these stories and does not vouch for their accuracy.
Some of the Turkish dailies covered the criticism on the highly watched TV series "Muhtesem Yuzyil" (Magnificent Century) which depicts the era of Ottoman Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip
Erdogan criticised the "Muhtesem Yuzyil" and slammed the series for the portrayal of the Sultan two days ago.
Erdogan said "we do not have such ancestors" and called for judicial action against the series. Dailies stated that the popular tv series of Muhtesem Yuzyil was being criticized by artists, historians and politicians after Erdogan's words.
Another topic covered by most of the Turkish dailies was the Muharrem month's fast breaking meal held by Turkish President Abdullah Gul at the Presidential Residence. Muharrem fast performed by Alevi and Caferi communities. Fast breaking meal hosted Religious Affairs Directorate head Mehmet Gormez and names from the Alevi and Caferi sects.
