KARS—The head of the local branch of the notorious Grey Wolves, Tolga Adıgüzel has threatened that his group would “hunt for Armenians” in Kars, after world-renowned pianist Tigran Hamasyan performed a concert at the ruins of Ani, Ermenihaber.am reported, citing Turkish Radikal daily.
Adıgüzel went on to accuse Armenians of organizing what he called “the events of 1915” and “Khodjaly.
“What should we do now? Should we start a hunt for Armenians in the streets of Kars?” asked Adıgüzel.
He urged Armenians “not to test the patience of Turks.” He added that “Turks, for example, cannot go to Armenia and freely organize an event at a sacred site for Armenians.” He threatened to take necessary measures “if events repeat.”
Within the framework of the Luys I Luso program, Tigran Hamasyan will perform Armenian musical selections in 100 churches in Turkey, Armenia, Georgia, Lebanon, France, Belgium, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Great Britain, Germany, Luxemburg, the United States and Russia.
The program is a new interpretation of Armenian religious music from the 5th to the 20th centuries, which will be released on a CD in September 2015.
