in response to reader comment: My humble reply to HGE

Submitted by HGE (Turkey), Sep 9, 2022 at 07:00

Dear Prashant, your comment looks like some vague stance and ambiguous criticism on officially and constitutionally secular Turkey's religious tendencies.

My comment was cropped by the moderator. Even though, your comment doesn't constitute a reply since it does not respond to any of my points.

NATO is a military organization of collective security.

I do not see how the religion is an issue within this debate. Although I do not deny Turkish Presidency's tendencies on the matter, Turkey's recent actions are shaped on its strategic vision for its own interests, rather than Islamist agendas.

I am not a supporter of Turkish President, because I think this will be the next comment regarding on my point of views. I am trying to approach this from an impartial view, with facts, while all I am getting biased, irrelevant comments based on hostile attitude towards a member of the Alliance.
