Turk save Armenian

Celal bey, Mayor of Konya and people of Konya were already providing food and water to groups of Armenians passing near by the city. When the mayor received orders to deport the Armenians of the city, he refused to obey them. He sent Armenians fleeing from other cities to be housed in various villages and towns. The government fired him and was not allowed to hold any jobs in the state sector.
