Many thanks for this info brother Ozcan.

Btw, can you provide me with any website links where I can read the history of the Ottomans .. I mean fair and unbiased information?   I see many Musims comparing, rather equating, Erdogan's pro-West policies with the Ottomans. Ottomans are famous for many of their achievements.  I don't think they were ever as puppety as Erdogan.  So why this comparison?  Or am I wrong?

Salaam sister Zeynab,

Unfortunately I too don't know any reliable websites about Ottoman history. I do have a few books by a famous Turkish historian, which I haven't read yet (because Islamic books currently have the priority and I'm a slow reader). I just checked if he has a website but I couldn't find it in English. Besides, the site doesn't seem to be his own official website but of his readers or something.

As for Ottomans, they certainly weren't western puppets until the beginning of the 19th century, but unfortunately they eventually became one. The desperate attempt at westernization didn't start with Ataturk. Since the last 150 years  (or maybe longer) the Ottomans and now Turks have had a massive inferiority complex and a strong urge to adopt anything western. During this late Ottoman era many people, mainly from the rich and the elite, were sent to countries like France to study and when they came back they had become totally westernized. They started hating their own culture and some even Islam.

These western-educated Ottomans have basically destroyed the whole empire. They have also tried desperately to erase all Turkish words of Arabic origin that remind people of Islam. There were people who actually tried to wipe Islam completely off in Anatolia. In the 1930's some Turkish textbooks in schools were portraying Islam as a backward Arab and man-made religion - they went that far. Many people who were religious rightfully didn't send their kids to school in that era. The 1940s were even worse if I remember correctly; people couldn't gather to study or even talk about Islam or Allah at all. Muslims were severely oppressed by the state and the Turkish Gendarmerie breaking into people's houses and so on. There are still old people who remember those days with horror.
