At this point, two issues naturally came to the fore. First; It is learning, understanding and living religion from the right sources. The second is; It has shown that the survival of the Turkish state will not be in the hands of a group or organization, on the contrary, it is in the hands of every individual of the nation. One of the duties of universities is to reveal the economic, psychological and social factors that played a role in the formation and execution of the coup attempts and to convey this information to our nation and the relevant institutions of our state so that they do not occur again. As a matter of fact, Pamukkale University handles the July 15 coup attempt with scientific panels and guides future studies by revealing the scientific basis of the event. If we look at the issues we discussed in the “July 15 Turkey Impassable Panel” held in 2021 last year, the actions taken by our University in this direction will be seen clearly."
