Turks who lost their jobs: We are not Gulenists

It is nearly three weeks since Turkey was rocked by a bloody coup, with hundreds left dead as elements of the army tried to take power.

The government quickly blamed a secret organisation run by an exiled cleric named Fethullah Gulen, and sought to remove his followers from public life.
