Evidence Ataturk,Creator of Modern Turkey,Greatest Man produced by the Turkic Peoples,was an Apostate of Islam
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk(1881-1938) was ruler of Turkey for 15 years (1923-1938) and revolutionized the country.He was an astonishing man,comparable to Peter the Great,Catherine the Great of Russia,Augustus and Simon Bolivar.He had his faults.There is ample evidence he was an apostate of Islam.
He is the greatest man produced by the Turkic peoples,of a greater moral stature than the greatest of the Ottoman sultans,Suleiman(1494-1566),under who the Ottoman Empire reached its height.Not all the Turkic peoples are Turks,others are the Azerbaiyanis,Kazakhs,Uzbeks,Kirguis,Turkmenis(each of which has their own country:Kazakhsatn,Turkemistan,etc) and the Uighurs of Sinkinag province in China(who are 40% of the population).They all speak languages similar to each other.All of those Turkic peoples are Muslim.
The Second Greatest Man produced by the Turkic Peoples
Sultan Suleiman is called the “Magnificent” and he was so magnificent that in 1529,after being defeated in Vienna,which he wanted to conquered,he took back with him 50,000 Christian girls and women he had captured as sex-slaves for the Muslim harems.
Suleiman killed 2 of his Sons and 4 of his Grandsons
He also killed his own son Mustafa in 1552,the heir to the throne,who all indicates would have been a brilliant ruler. The Austrian ambassador in Istanbul Busbecq wrote “Suleiman has among his children a son called Mustafa, marvellously well educated and prudent and of an age to rule, since he is 24 or 25 years old; may God never allow a Barbary of such strength to come near us”, going on to talk of Mustafa’s “remarkable natural gifts“.
Later he killed his son Bayezid and his four grandsons in 1561.Bayezid had fled to Persia and found refuge. Following diplomatic exchanges, the Sultan demanded from the Persian Safavid Shah that Bayezid be either extradited or executed. In return for large amounts of gold, the Shah allowed a Turkish executioner to strangle Bayezid and his four sons.Very magnificent indeed.

He was not the only Case in History
The Case of Frederick II (1194-1250)
He was the most powerful monarch in Europe,the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire,ruler of Sicily and a very brilliant man,an intellectual,who spoke several languages,including Arabic.He was called Stupor Mundi,”the Wonder of the World”.Analysing him all indicates he did not believe in Christianity.Now at his court:
1.He had 20 Muslim women from age 20 to 40 at his court in Sicily who he said were his servants.
2.People said he had a harem,they were his women slaves for sexual purposes.
Alot of historians believe it is true.The point is that not even the most powerful man in Europe could openly say:”I have sex slaves”.Why?Because it would cause a moral scandal,it was unacceptable.Contrast that with Muslim society accepting 5,000 Christian women,sex slaves by the Caliph in Muslim Spain in the 10th century(the Muslim Caliphate in Spain lasted from 929-1031).I had formerly said the figure was 10,000 but after verifying I found out I was wrong.Such a high figure was not unusual,for example,Akbar,the 16th century Mughal ruler of India,had a harem of 5,000 Hindu women and his son Jahangir had one of 6,000.
The Founder of Pakistan,Muhammad Ali Jinnah(1876 – 1948) , was an Atheist
Pakistan or Land of the Pure,that is to say the Muslims,was founded because the Muslims did not want to live with the Hindus.The man responsible did not believe in Islam though he had been raised as a Muslim.
He was the president of the All-India Muslim League from 1916 till Pakistan’s independence on August 14, 1947, and as Pakistan’s first Governor-General from August 15, 1947 until his death on September 11, 1948.So an atheist was the chief of all of India’s Muslims for decades.He also ate pork and drank liquor,both forbidden in the Koran.
According to Andrew Mango in his respected book “Ataturk:The Biography of the Founder of Modern Turkey” (1999) Ataturk said:
“I have no religion, and at times I wish all religions at the bottom of the sea. He is a weak ruler who needs religion to uphold his government; it is as if he would catch his people in a trap.
My people are going to learn the principles of democracy, the dictates of truth and the teachings of science. Superstition must go. Let them worship as they will; every man can follow his own conscience, provided it does not interfere with sane reason or bid him against the liberty of his fellow-men.”
Who is Andrew Mango(born 1926)?
He is a British writer who has written a major,important biography of Ataturk,where he says the good things and the bad things.Ataturk was not perfect.He has written much on Turkey:
2.Discovering Turkey (1971)
3.Turkey: The Challenge of a New Role (1994)
4.Ataturk:The Biography of the Founder of Modern Turkey (1999):many say it is the definitive biography.

Articles on Andrew Mango’s Book
Review by David Pryce-Jones,British novelist and political analyst,author of Betrayal: France, the Arabs, and the Jews
I do not agree with every idea of the reviewer,his apology for stealing 500,000-1 million Christian children and forcing them to become Muslims during a 300 year period by the Ottomans,called the devshirme system,is revolting.
Further Evidence Ataturk did not believe in Islam
1.In 1924 he abolished the Caliphate.
2.In 1928 Islam was declared to no longer be the official religion of Turkey.
3.Polygamy was declared illegal.
4.Civil Marriage was declared obligatory.
5.He ordered the closing of the Sufi orders,like the famous Mevlevi order,with its whirling dervishes and closed the tombs of Muslim saints.
6.Sunday(the Christian holy day) replaced Friday(the Muslim holy day) as the day of rest in 1935.
7.Justinian was the greatest emperor of the Byzantine Empire and in 537 he completed the best church in the world at the time,that of Holy Wisdom(Hagia Sophia).He said:“O Solomon,I have surpassed you!”You see king Solomon had built the first Temple of Jerusalem and the phrase refers to it.It was a Christian church from 537 till 1453.Then it was a mosque from 1453 till 1935 when Ataturk turned it into a museum.
