Reader comment on item: Is Turkey Going Islamist?

Submitted by Balikesirli (Australia), Feb 10, 2006 at 21:39

I'm suprised that this topic has even come up.

I don't see this possible.


At first hand some of the laws the ruling party (AKP) has brought up to the parliament & to the President. These were to balance some inequalities which were present in the Turkish Society.

Some of these laws like about the inequality of the "Katsayi problem at Universities", "about "the problem with women with head scarves being able to go to university (female students with headscarves or hijabs aren't allowed into universities)".

These proposed laws were knocked back & rejected without any ceremony.

Hell even in NON MUSLIM COUNTRIES THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE.
But in My secular country WHICH HAS A POPULATION of 99% MUSLIMS wearing of the HEADSCARVES or HIJAB TO SCHOOLS, UNIVERSITIES & PUBLIC OFFICES OF THE GOVERNMENT is BANNED.

GO FIGURE!!!!!

ALSO TEACHING THE HOLY KORAN TO CHILDREN IS ALSO FORBIDDEN.

TURKEY GOING ISLAMIST DOES'NT SOMEHOW FIT.

THE POWERS THAT BE WON'T ALLOW IT ANYWAY.

WHAT THE FORMER PRIME MINISTER BULENT ECEVIT CALLED "DERIN DEVLET" OR "DEEP GOVERNMENT" OR "THE REAL POWERBROKERS IN TURKEY".

TURKEY GOING MORE DE-ISLAMIST WOULD BE MORE CORRECT.
Submitting....
