Duvar English - The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) has put up billboards reading "Love Erdoğan" across Turkey as a reaction against an ad on New York's Times Square that read "Stop Erdoğan."
President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's AKP last week slammed the movement of U.S.-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen for placing the ad, as it called the network "an enemy of Turkey."
The ad in the U.S. was placed by a group called Advocates of Silenced Turkey, which claims to be committed to "give a voice to all people oppressed in Turkey." The group's website is currently banned in Turkey and their ads were seen to be praised by staunch supporters of Gülen.
Turkey, in return, put up billboards across the country, with those in the Kurdish-majority southeastern provinces written in Kurdish.
