How a Turkish journalist doctored his report on Karnataka’s Hijab row

When the issue of Gurugram Namaz Row was going, Yasir Erkus from Turkey contacted me for an interview. Since he didn’t publish my views, I’m putting out the questions and answers myself. Note: Sharing this chat with his approval (refer below)


I responded to all his questions and even requested to share the article with me and tag me on Twitter while putting it here. But then, Yasir Erkus had more questions.


Since a foreign journalist Yasir Erkus was asking about my country and also questioning about my Hindu identity, I felt it important to respond. (I’ve written his questions first and then responded)

Now Yasir Erkus asked me specifically about Gurugram. So I gave him the real picture.

After this, Yasir Erkus shifted the goal post and equated Namaz with Holi and Diwali. So I cleared the air. Then he bluntly asked me if I am angry with public prayers.

Then unexpectedly, Yasir Erkus gave his verdict that Bharat is treating Muslims unfairly. I had to rebut him with facts.

He then asked me if I wish to be quoted for my opinions. I said yes.

I was shocked when Yasir Erkus actually started justifying terrorism. Like seriously?! Have responded to him on that which was very much required.

But Yasir Erkus continued with his justification. And I ended the interview with Namaste.

  1. This Turkish journo is stupidly ignorant of Indian Muslims and also Muslims of other countries.
    How he can say Muslims do not steal, nor kill people unjustly? What has been going on in Afghanistan? Are the Talibans just? By his version, then ISIS action (genocide, torture, beheading of Yazidis and Shia Muslims & Syria’s Govt forrces) is justified inasmuch as Muslims do not kill unjustly!!! OK, Muslims do not steal. Why then in Shariati Laws, there is a mandate/provision to chop off the hand of Muslims when they steal? It should not have been there.
    Actually, this green-horn journalist is a one-eyed deer who can see no wrong-doing of any Muslims. He is a theoretical journalist imbibed in lop-sided , misrepresented religious philosophy.
