While turkey is one of the few constitutionally secular democracies in the area, it's population is highly religious. The government agency probably
thought that the outrage among the people inside the country that would come with allowing the article to be published would be worse than the outrage
of the general scientific community outside turkey.
EDIT: Either something like that, or certain members of the agency decided to put personal beliefs before doing their job.
