A Germany-born Turkish town council election candidate has been forced to apologize and curb his campaign for the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) after printing a logo with the Turkish crescent moon and star on it.
37-year-old Yasar Celik was running for the seat in Neuss, North Rhine-Westphalia caused outrage when it was found that he had place the Turkish symbol within the C that stands for “Christian.”
Claiming that he had printed 200 bags with the altered logo to distribute at a mosque as part of his campaign to attract Turkish voters, Calik said that he never had any religious point in mind[!!]
Calik was then ordered to remove the symbol after he was reminded that the party had been standing by Christian values for almost 60 years.
