Why the pogrom happened

Reader comment on item: A Million Moderate Muslims on the March
in response to reader comment: Modern Turkey-is it really moderate?

The pogrom happened because in Cyprus there were clashes between Turkish and Greek Cypriots. It was a reaction to the things the Greek cypriots did against The Turks in the island.
Do a research about the Turkish minority of Thrace in Greece. Why don't they have equal rights as the Greeks.
It is easy for one to blame Turks and Muslims if the one can't see his own faults....
