Turkey’s TUSAŞ Engine Industries (TEI) has been controlled by members of a major Sunni order of Sufism and has been using psychics, enchanters and healers to solve problems encountered in production, journalist Erk Acarer reported on Saturday.
A leading family belonging to the Naqshbandi order in recent years has taken over the management of the defence firm which produces, tests, maintains, designs, and repairs aircraft engines and engine parts, according to the journalist who lives in Germany.
All executives of the firm are chosen from among the members of the same order, as well as some 80 percent of the remaining employees, he said in his channel on YouTube.
“The Turkish defence industry is passing through a period similar to the one during Ibrahim The Mad,” said Acarer, referring to Ottoman Sultan who ruled the empire from 1640 until 1648 and was known for his unstable mental health. The reign of Ibrahim is also known for the roles magicians and healers played as the Ottoman Palace’s senior officials.
Acarer said that TUSAŞ used dummy companies to outsource the services of psychics, enchanters and healers, and once paid 90 thousand Turkish lira as a monthly charge for the services provided by one of these companies.
“We are talking about a firm that makes aircraft engines, I mean this is something that should be kept secret in many places of the world, should be considered a critical job,” Acarer explained.
Furthermore, in addition to using spells to ensure the resignation of employees that are not tied to the Naqshbandi order, the company also sends photos of engines produced inside the company to these psychics, enchanters and healers, asking them to prevent any spells that may have been casted by foreign agents, according to documents shared by Acarer.
The aviation company, which was established in 1985 as a joint venture between Turkish Aerospace Industries Inc., General Electric, Turkish Armed Forces Foundation and Turkish Aeronautical Association, also seeks services of psychics, enchanters and healers for broken down cars and satellite dishes, Acarer said.
