Turkey’s Muslims face restrictions

By: Anjum Kermani

ANKARA, Turkey: Muslim majority of Turkey faced religious restrictions that were not experienced by non-Muslims.

Foreign Minister Ali Babacan while speaking after a hearing of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament in Brussels stated this.

"The Muslim majority is also facing problems concerning religious freedoms in Turkey," Babacan said. "We have been having a debate based on secularism in Turkey."

"Our definition of secularism is clear: separation of state and religious affairs, and the state not intervening in individuals fulfilling the requirements of their faith."

  "Knowledge is better than wealth because it protects you while you have to guard wealth. it decreases if you keep on spending it but the more you make use of knowledge ,the more it increases . what you get through wealth disappears as soon as wealth disappears but what you achieve through knowledge will remain even after you."MORE ..
