Islam and Turkey’s EU membership

A Pakistani author speaks out in Turkey's Favor:

"In its ardent desire to be part of Europe, modern Turkey jettisoned its Islamic character in favour of secularism about eight decades back; was in denial of its rich Islamic past and broke ranks with the Muslim world in its quest for a European identity. Isn’t it ironic that it is being told that its credentials for EU membership aren’t sufficiently sound?"
