“On a special day like today celebrating MLK (Martin Luther King) and everything he stood for, Erdogan’s government kicks out an MP in Turkey for mentioning the genocide,” System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian said in a Facebook post.
“Garo Paylan is a true hero because it’s quite easy to speak the truth in a society with no repercussions but very dangerous in one that has many repercussions. I had the unique honor of meeting him last year. We are with you Garo,” Tankian said.
The comments come after the decision to suspend Armenian Garo Paylan from Turkish parliament for speaking about the Armenian Genocide during the legislature debate of a new Turkish constitution.
