Dear Vishvas

You really made me laugh with your deep knowledge on Ataturk especially claiming that he has ugly views on Islam.HA HA HA

I just wonder why- when he had all the chance and power in his hands after defeating the imperialists to change the religion of the Turks to something else other that Islam. As you may know (i'm not sure though) he reformed everything including language. He might as well have changed the religion. Instead first thing first he ordered the translation of Kuran into Turkish for his people to read and understand it as one doesnt have to know arabic to read in his-her religion.

So please dont even try to teach me something on my leader and his teachings. You are just making a fool out of yourself. Talk about something you know related to your country so that we can learn from you.
