(Haberturk Newspaper, 5 January 2011)
In Samsun, a retired Islamic holy man has published a photo
of Satan taken for the first time with a cellphone camera at
an outdoor bar. Muharrem Çavuşoğlu, the former holy man,
published his first book 'The World of Secret Knowledge and
Secrets about Religion' in 2004. The next year a friend of his
took a picture while the friend and his acquaintences were
drinking alcohol in the garden of a bar. There was a form in
the tree shown in the photo that the friend could not identify.
Çavuşoğlu examined the photo and determined that the form
in question was Satan. He waited until 2010 to announce his
finding and said that he has included it in the fifth printing of
his book to prove to people that such entities exist. He said
'I've studied this matter for many years. Based on my inves-
tigation, I have determined that the form in the tree is Satan.
This Satan is found near those who drink alcohol and gamble,
angering them or inciting them. Spirits and devils like to show
themselves from time to time in a fantastic way, as in the photo.'
