Wikipedia Blocked In Turkey For 'Not Removing Content'



Free online encyclopedia website Wikipedia gets blocked in Turkey.


According to report, site has been blocked under a provisional administrative measure without a court order, but Turkey blocks says an order is expected in the coming days.

Turkey's communications ministry said Wikipedia was attempting to run a "smear campaign" against Turkey, saying some articles purported that Ankara was coordinating with militant groups, state-run Anadolu news agency reported.

"Instead of coordinating against terrorism, it has become part of an information source which is running a smear campaign against Turkey in the international arena," Anadolu quoted the ministry as saying in a statement.

The ban would be lifted if Wikipedia met the government's demands, Anadolu said.

“The loss of availability is consistent with internet filters used to censor content in the country,” the monitor said.

Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales react on Twitter,


Turkey already temporarily blocked access to popular sites - including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter in past.

In March 2014, YouTube was banned for several months in Turkey after the site was used to broadcast purported footage of a security meeting on Syria.

  1. I sincerely didn’t like the idea, but this is my way of saying thank you to the Quora user that recommended a hacker ( [email protected] )

    I hired him for a very private and difficult matter of helping me hack a my spouse’s phone and social networks and some other personal stuffs and he far exceeded my expectations. which Jeremie, helped me get the info(whatsapp, facebook, text messages, call logs etc) faster and cheaper than I had imagined. The first time we spoke, we had a very long phone consultation in he gave me all my options that he could think of to resolve my case, and he even recommended I try other options before hiring him, which shows that he is honest. I decided to hire him and I am glad I did. he is a fantastic investigator and a great person. If you need a professional, reliable and efficient hacker, then you should contact this guy ; [email protected]
