Amid controversial arrest of Afghan-Turk high school teachers in capital Kabul, the local media outlets in Turkey have reported that the teachers have likely been arrested over the alleged links with Fethullah Gülen.

According to the local Hurriyet Daily News, the move against Afghan Turk CAG Educational NGO (ATCE), the body that runs the schools, appeared to be part of a Turkish campaign against U.S.-based Fethullah Gülen, accused of being behind last year’s failed coup attempt.

“Around 7 a.m., four of our teachers traveling in two different cars were picked up by [Afghan intelligence],” said Human Erdoğan, the chairman of ATCE.

Other intelligence officials later went to the group’s girls’ school nearby looking for another teacher, he said.

The Afghan security institutions have not commented regarding the arrest of the school teachers so far.

This comes as the parents of the students called on the government to intervene and the security institutions must provide satisfactory information regarding the raid.

They said the security institutions must prove that the school had any links with the terror organizations for which a raid was apparently carried out.

The protesters called the operation against the human rights and a move against the principles of Islam.
