Plan Yapmayın Plan Controversy

In his latest album, Dünya Tatlısı, released late 2007 contains a song named Plans, don't make any plans (Plan Yapmayın Plan), which has created a major controversy in Turkey.

The lyrics take aim at Americans, Russians, Kurds, Christians, Armenians and the Turks who support them, telling them not to make plans against the Black Sea region of Turkey. The lyrics praise Ogün Samast and Yasin Hayal the alleged killers of the Armenian-Turkish journalist Hrant Dink and end with "If a person betrays the country, he is finished off".

Whereas the song does not name Ogün, Yasin and Hrant Dink explicitly, a video clip posted on youtube shows images of Ogün, Yasin and Hrant Dink throughout the song.

Several organizations including The Human Rights Association, Association of Human Rights and Solidarity for Oppressed Peoples and Strong Turkey Party have all filed criminal complaints. İstanbul Chief Prosecutor's Office has begun an investigation.

Hakan Öztekin of Çarşamba claimed responsibility for making the video clip. He claims that he didn't have a political motive when creating the clip, but created the clip as a hobbyist.
