Ottomans were global criminals, they have murdered many people, it was disaster, what they have done. It is no ground to be proud, it is the same thing as hitlerites.
This country ex Bizantium ( it was fatal, bad country too) should have Iran ( Persians ) as their pattern to follow. Iran ( Persia)- always merciful, very pious, have own coulture, have own language, protect their culture, are right, they have saved their values for centuries.
And Turks what? They have slashed a few nations in their history: Armenians, Bulgarians, some european nations, presently have have to demolish Afghanistan actively and Syria passively thanks to aid to these antisyrian rebels. And what is this turkey language, there is no turkey language - it is a language of a dead mongolian tribe, which have invaded these parts of Bisantium called now Turkey and in the past Osmanian empire.

all this is nothing new,nor any different than what other religions say in different languages.in short islam and I do know being a muslim albeit a moderate and a modern one,which means i have no time for mumbo jumbo..all religions are the same and shall be the same as long as we stay on this earth before we finsh ruining it;a system of belief for a better life amongst the humans
nothing more,nothing less..and whoever has died has never come back to tell us what is on the other side either-many claimed to have,but even mehdi,nor jesus could come back yet!..if they couldn`t, what chance the mere mortals like the rest have?-therefore, save your breath trying to influence how people want to live and ,let them make their own decisions .this is what matters not any book that`s written thousands of years ago somehow by either one race,clan,nation,community or any other people , the message is the same;peaceful existance amongst all,but religion these days and for so many centruies has been the main dividing warmonger used by the rich and the powerful to serve their own interests and nothing else.so try to get that in your mind and then we can talk.
Moses, Jesus and Mohammad were the Noble Messengers of Allah (God) sent when Humanity was lost and enjoying immorality and dishonesty to reform us. But, we still do not obey even a single commandment. Thou shall not kill, and we kill Palestinians, Kashmiris, Ukranians, Iraqis, Afghans as if they are not humans. Stop stealing, spreading porn, prostitution, materialism, greed, etc. stop caste system.
Spread good education and mutual respect..

The Wahabis, Turks or Iranians are all Muslims. In the eyes of Allah we are all Muslims. Believe in one God and accept Prophet Mohammad as the last Prophet. Keep Allah in your heart and soul and always think how you can make HIM happy with your good deeds.
No Muslim is superior because of race.
