Other subsequent processes of conservative liberation in the Ottoman Empire were strongly opposed. They hoped to re-establish the royal power of Sultan Abdul Hamid II as an absolute king, even if their sultan came to power by adopting a constitution and opening the constitution. Parliament was dissolved in 1878 under the pretext of the Russian War, and Abdul Hamid II reigned for more than 30 years as an absolute king until 1908, when parliament began its second term. The constitutional era, under the pressure of progressive forces in the empire, despite a reactionary uprising that began on April 13, 1909 (March 31, 1325 AH in the Roman calendar) caused the democratic process to be interrupted again. Leading forces “Hareket Ordusu” (Turkish for “Army of Action”) were suppressed from Rumelia, under the command of Mahmud Shokd Pasha, and the monument was inaugurated in 1911 on the second anniversary of the March 31 incident.
