The aggressive protesting of the lifting of the ban demonstrates how fearful Turkish seculars are that somehow this is the beginning of ,Turkey turning into Iraq’.Turkish citizens must work on how they treat other countrymen whom are different from them with dignity and respect and acceptance with or without a headscarve.
