Abstract

In 1921 claimed that a secret organization named "Halâs-ı Vatan" was established for breaking the influence of England in İstanbul. The aim of the organization was killing General Harington, General Ballard and Sheikh ul-Islam Mustafa Sabri Efendi. Merely, even English High Commissioner Sir Horace Rumbold was in doubt about the existance of this organization. This article is aiming to put forth the attribute of the organization through Ottoman archive documents.
