REVOLT of SEYH BEDRETTIN
.

After Mehmed had restored the unity in Anatolia and Roumelia, he struggled with two revolts. One was the revolt of Seyh Bedrettin, the other was the revolt of Duzmece Mustafa. Seyh Bedrettin was born in Simavna near Edirne and he was educated in the important scientific and cultural centres as Bursa, Konya, and Cairo.

Seyh Bedrettin and his friends Torlak Kemal and Borkluce Mustafa designed a tarikat (sect) in Iznik and they have began to provoke people with extremist islamic ideas. After a while, Seyh Bedrettin and his friends came to Deliosman and started a riot. In Izmir Borkluce Mustafa and in Manisa Torlak Kemal joined to the revolt. Mehmed sent his forces to Izmir and Manisa and repressed the revolt. Seyh Bedrettin was caught and after he judged by Kadi (Judge) of Serez, he was sentenced to death.
