Ana : Mother, Main
Yurt: home

Anayurt is the Turkish for fatherland. Some reviewer is mistaken about the absence of this word in Turkish and accuses Turkish of being a bastard language. He/she deliberately shows a false example of "vatan" being Iranian.

If you do not know, then do not pretend like you do. Do not lie. Do not make propaganda.
