No Wikipedia: Turkey

Apparently, all the access to the online encyclopedia Wikipedia has been blocked in Turkish Government. Its needless to speak the importance of the world’s most popular website, Wikipedia and initially the reason behind was not so clear for imposing the ban.

But by the Turkey Blocks group the news came out about the site which was inaccessible from 08:00 (05:00 GMT) by order of the Turkish authorities.

The people living in the capital of Turkey, Istanbul stated that without using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) they could not access any Wikipedia pages.

Turkey’s Information and Communication Technologies Authority was quoted as saying, “After technical analysis and legal consideration based on the Law Nr. 5651, an administrative measure has been taken for this website”.

This came out without providing any reason.

Hurriyet Daily News, Turkey Blocks and Turkish media all of them said the provisional order would need to be backed by a full court ruling in the next few days.

The entire social media was in boom after getting the news of the ban in Turkey. Though many of the users thought that it might be a plan to stop the criticism on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Wikipedia page.

Mr. Erdogan narrowly won a controversial 16 April referendum on increasing his powers, but the issue has deeply divided the country. Turkey has temporarily blocked popular social media sites including Facebook and Twitter in the past, especially in the wake of mass protests or terror attacks. The government has previously denied censoring the internet, blaming outages on spikes in usage after major events.
