1/13 Dear Pakistanis; why do you care about a treaty that Turkey signed 100 years ago? The Treaty of Lausanne has no expiration date. The caliphate won't be re-established in 2023. This is a conspiracy theory that circulates within Islamic groups in Turkey.
#Pakistan #Caliphate
2/13 According to this theory, Turkey is an oil and natural gas rich country but can’t surface its natural resources due to restrictions implemented as a result of Lausanne. Of course, none of this will actually happen. The Treaty of Lausanne has no secret expiration clause.+
3/13 After defeating the Ottoman Empire in World War I; Britain, France, Italy and Greece divided Anatolia, occupied the territory that is now Turkey. However, Kemal Ataturk reorganized the remnants of the Ottoman army and thwarted this attempted division through shrewd+
4/13 diplomacy and several years of war. Subsequently, the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne recognized Ataturk's victory and established the borders of modern Turkey. Signed in July 1923, the Lausanne Treaty between the representatives of Ankara government and the Allied Forces became+
5/13 the founding document of the Turkish Republic. Turkey was finally admitted as a full member of the league of Westphalian sovereign states premised on the congruence between territory, sovereignty, and population.
6/13🇹🇷 is an independent country&has the right to use whatever natural resources it has. The Treaty of Lausanne does not prevent🇹🇷 in any way. The Lausanne has no an expiration date or secret clauses. If you aren't convinced, then wait for 2023 & see the truth with your own eyes
7/13 Turkey will not be a superpower in 2023. On the contrary, the Turkish economy is getting worse day by day. The official inflation rate is 78 percent, but no one believes it. The actual inflation rate is over 100 percent. Diesel price has increased by 304 percent in 1 year.
8/13 Central Bank net reserves minus $54 billion. It's good if we don't go bankrupt at this rate. As you can see, the reality is very different from the Ertugrul series. By the way, Ertuğrul is one of the TV series that the well-educated people do not watch in Turkey.
9/13 If you Pakistanis want the caliphate so much, you can re-establish it in your own country. Please stop obsessing about Turkey anymore. The vast majority of Turks do not even know which city is the capital of Pakistan. The caliphate was abolished by Ataturk in 1924.+
10/13 Ataturk was a statesman but above all a revolutionary who believed that rapid modernization was a matter of life and death for his nation, and that could be achieved by revolution legitimized by the modern principle of national will against a concept of divine authority.
11/13 Modernization is the end result of an historical process of a more or less long period. It was not an accident that Turkey could achieve the most radical revolution in Islam, and is today the least affected Muslim nation by the upsurge of Islamic fundamentalism.
12/13 By revolution&with the strong backing of a group of reformers as well as with the approval of a large section of the population, Ataturk was able to eliminate the control of hierarchy & to introduce the legal&political conditions for rapid social development&modernization
13/13 ''The Caliphate is nothing but a myth of the past having no place in modern times.🇹🇷 is secular. Every individual reaching maturity is free in choosing his or her religion. Turkey, with its women and men being equal in every right, is a creation of recent years.'' #Ataturk

1. I want to tell you about Adnan Oktar. Adnan Oktar also known as Adnan Hoca or Harun Yahya is a Turkish religious cult leader, televangelist, creationist and anti-evolutionist. Oktar and his followers describe themselves as the new and modern face of Islam. 😃
2. He grew up in a relatively affluent secular family in the 70s, only becoming involved in religious activism after moving to Istanbul to study at what was then the Academy of Fine Arts in 1979. Over the 80s he would build a circle of devotees known as Adnanists. 😎
3. In the early 1980s, Oktar preached his views on Islam to students around him from wealthy Istanbul families. They were joined by newly religious private high school students who were from families with similar higher-class economic backgrounds.
