what is sharia

Reader comment on item: Turkey, Closest to Leading the Middle East

Submitted by havas (Turkey), Jan 22, 2013 at 16:35

ı wonder what do you mean by sharia and islamizm?

ı know that someday mr erdoğan plans to ban alcohol. he puts too much tax on alcohol plus they dont give permits to sell alcohol in new starting restaurants and bars. this is a fact.

but he is a full member of capitalist system. he has no problem with interests which is against islam.

sharia allows more than one woman and underage merriages are okey, but he brought extreme severe laws against making sex, even touching to under 18 years old girls. how come?

ı agree that turkey now looks much more muslim than before. but how can erdoğan will make turks like iranians ı cant even imagine?

on the other hand turkeys lands are 3% in europe and 20 million lives here out of total 74 million and economy is highly in this part. not as small as you assume.

culture is 30% balkan and 70% middle eastern now. and this was so 40 years ago also. but religious muslims were living in the villages so you couldnt see them then. now they came to the cities. so you see plenty of them.

ıı personally dont care to live in a religious muslim country at all. . important thing is our living conditions.
