I am not sure if I do like Erdogan because I don't really follow politics closely as I regard it as a soul corruptive wast of time.
However, I do feel sad that Turkey failed to protect its history (good and bad ) as history is the identity of a nation. Abandoning your Alphabets and changing the way you dress doesn't make you an open minded and educated industrial nation.
Europe sold nationalism to nations under slogan of freedom and democracy as part of divide and conquer strategy. We need education not only in Science and Technology but also in Islam and History.
My grandfather served the Ottoman Empire so as many other members of my family who died in Turkey defending the Ottoman Empire.
