The members of the FETÖ used this application to share information and communicate with each other.

Turkey's legal authority arrested a total of 31,048 people for their direct links with the July 15 deadliest coup attempt that martyred 241 people and injured over 2,200 others.

The judiciary launched a wide-ranging investigation in the aftermath of the coup, which was organized and staged by the Fetullah Terrorists Organization (FETÖ) that had established a state within the state by infiltrating thousands of its members into the judiciary, police, military and other state institutions.

FETÖ is a cult group cum terrorist organization led by its U.S.-based leader, Fetullah Gülen, who guised himself under the cover of the so-called inter religious dialogue, charity foundations, schools and NGOs around that world that are accused of Money laundering billions of dollars and supporting terror groups.

Following the coup attempt, which was the bloodiest in Turkey's history, the government launched an operation to clear the state from the putschists.
