Chairman Zorlu, on October 26, 2020 Marmara University faculty member Prof. Dr. In the article written by Ekrem Buğra Ekinci, Karamanoğlu said that Mehmet Bey's announcement of Turkish as the official language was arrogantly claimed to be a fabricated legend.
Zorlu continued with his statement, "As you know, history begins with the invention of writing. So a person who will make a claim about a period of his history has to scan the most valid sources of the period.
The most valid sources for the period mentioned:

- Turcologist, academician Prof. Dr. Zeynep Korkmaz's Studies on Turkish Language
- Ordinaryus Prof. Dr. Anatolian Principalities of İsmail Uzunçarşılı
- Seljuk history expert Linguist Prof. Dr. In Faruk Timurtaş's works
- Prof. Dr. Faruk Sümer and Prof. Dr. İbrahim Kafesoğlu's works are the most valid sources of this period, confirming the Turkish Language Edict.

Taking shelter behind our sublime religion, which they use as an Ottoman umbrella and mask when it comes to their work; This attack on the Turkish nation and the Turkish language is an operation to discredit the names that have a rightful place in world history. Being contrary, in order to create the agenda Turkish nation and our values, a mayor of this attack the Republic of Turkey made our Turkish is the most fundamental element of our national culture and Mehmed Bey's district, which houses the tomb condemn as Margrave.
