    President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan was not allowed by a German court to speak at a planned anti-coup rally in Cologne via video call on Sunday, but previously Germany allowed the internationally recognized PKK terrorist organization's armed wing leader Murat Karayılan to speak in 2011 at the 19th Kurdish Cultural Festival in Köln.

    Germany's rational on banning the video conference of a democratically elected president while at the same time allowing a terrorist leader to address its followers is hard to grasp and has been drawing heavy criticism on social media.
