"Turkey and former Soviet Turkic and non-Turkic republics have all kinds of Muslims and Sufis, from very secular to the most shariatically minded, although there are differences between countries, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Daghestan are among the least secularly minded while Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Tatarstan are among the most secular, Turkey being in the middle"

turkey is NOt secular, it's police controlled. Other than that, the turks immigrants in germany are behaving like animals like the Pakistanis in britain. No difference.

Also read this "secular" behaviour in Azerbaijan


I believe there is no secular islam, those countries are police controlled that's what prevent them from behaving like any other muslim country
