A Turkish professor Serdar Kaya filed lawsuit against the Turkish Ministry of Education for the question describing Armenians and Greeks as traitors of Turkey.

The question was included in the exam test intended for the eighth grade at Turkish schools. The professor informed Turkish Taraf newspaper that his daughter answered such a question during her exams.

“Such question is simply a crime. My daughter answered positively on the question about ‘traitor-Armenians’, which means, the xenophobia has been embedded in her as well,” stressed Kaya.

As Armenian informed earlier, the exams on social sciences on June 9 and intended for the eighth grade of the Turkish public schools included questions describing Armenians and Greeks as traitors.
