Abstract

Turkey has been faced with a deadliest and barbaric coup attempt on 15 July 2016. A group of military personnel backed by FETO had tried to take over the power using heavy arms and jets. They bombed on the Parliament Building, President Complex, and Special Police Headquarters. But all these attempts have been filed against the people’s protests and political unity. Turkey’s media have been played a historical role against that coup attempt. They defended democracy and democratic government of Turkey. As the most important world news at that time, Bangladeshi media has been focused and placed Turkey’s news in their headlines. But both Leftist- secular and centre-rightist Bangladeshi media analysed that event differently. This study analysed 15 July failed coup news in 5 Bangladeshi popular and most-read print media.
