What is Turkey’s problem?

What is Turkey’s problem?

In a nutshell it is this!

“Since the days of Ataturk, Kurds were banned from using their native language, proscribed from giving Kurdish names to their children and denied any space or tolerance for their culture. The limited concessions towards the Kurds in recent years were primarily the result of repeated pressure from the EU. But Turkey is still long way from coming up with an identity that is not exclusively Turkish.” PR Kumaraswamy teaches contemporary Middle East at Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi.
