"At the sight of fighter jets flying over Ankara and Istanbul, we knew something was wrong", he said.
At a meeting with media representatives, Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım announced on July 14 that the government will demand the extension of the emergency rule from the parliament on July 18 as the current one expires on July 19.
The events and ceremonies, which will be attended by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will be open to the public.
Some 7,563 people were fired in the latest cull, the state-run Anadolu news agency reported, with almost 350 retired army members also stripped of their rank.
"Under the state of emergency, Turkish authorities have arrested, detained, and fired scores of alleged coup plotters and thousands of others without due process".
A former Istanbul governor was among those dismissed.
"Justice is a right; we want our right back", Mr. Kilicdaroglu said as he addressed the rally.
The imam also leads the Hizmet movement, with supporters in Turkey.
The commemorations are billed as tributes to the "epic heroism" of the Turkish people who fought and, in 250 cases, died to protect the country's democracy. But such interventions were thought to be history with the election of Mr. Erdogan, who came to power with a reputation as a moderate Islamic democratic reformer in 2003. It is one of the many works to keep the memory of the martyrs alive.
The government had stated that it was Fethullah Gulen's disciples in the armed forces who had waged a campaign of terror on the night of July 15 and that his role in it deserved everyone's attention.
"The rumors aren't true at all", the 79-year-old cleric said in an interview with Reuters.
Gulen called for an independent global investigation of the coup attempt, saying "hundreds of thousands" of innocent Turks had been punished simply for suspected links to him.
Most Turks no longer want to join the European Union and will be "comforted" if they are denied membership, President Erdogan has claimed.
