Dear Mohammad Ali,

Turkiye is already a republic. And already a country that almost all people is Mouslim.

Being a İslamic Republic is totally a monsturous wish.

First of all, the best Mouslims are living in Türkiye.

Because it is our free choice to be a Mouslim.

We could choose to be a Christian, Musevi or budhist or atheist. There are some who prefer not to be a Mouslim. And mostly people choose to stay as Mouslim. By free will.

Allah says he gave us brains, "use it". "Love your neighbour, care for them." "If you are not good to others then no use to pray, I will not hear" "Don't kill" And ofcourse other things also, which are in Kuran, and is according to 5th century social life. Those days in those places women used to be regarded as lower then an animal. So the things written in Kuran, about beating women and so, were even a better behaviour than the reality. Now, shall we obey those rules like an idiot or shall we use our brains and see the essence what Allah says.

If you try to obey all the Sheriat laws than it means you have no brains. Trying to live in 5th century while in 21st. This is reidiculus.

Mouslim people in Turkiye are not ridiculus, we live İslam as people with understanding and like people who can think and evaluate, but do not memorise.

So believe me the best İslam is in Turkiye.

And that is all. We will not use religion to create a system like the Kast system in India. We are trying to create a society that all have the same opportunities of education and all. And no one will be the free working labour for a few so called sacred men, especially women living equally with men.

People who have a different agenda are destined to fail in Turkiye.

Mohammed, no word of mine is to offend you. Only to inform you about Turkiye.
