Salam brother What do you think about the changes brought by Mustafa Kemal Atatürk in Turkey? Was what he did unislamic?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
He did many things against Islam, such as forcing women not to wear hijab, and persecuting Islamic scholars. He also did some good things for Turkey. So each one of his actions has to be judged on its own, but on the whole he was no supporter of Islam.
And God knows best.
Asking questions is temporarily unavailable. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Ataturk was a secularist, who modernized Turkey and saved it from total destruction. If he and others like him, did not engage in a fight there would be no muslim presence in present Turkey. He did modernize society and led a fight in emancipation of women. Thanks to his leadership we have a thriving muslim nation. He sure did more for muslims then most of contemporary so called muslim leaders today.
May he rest in peace.
If u are a nuslim u should delete this he was a anti islamist. Ge was nit a muslim at all
