    SID_NY To me, the whole implanted idea seems much like a conspiracy theory that came to existence post erodgen, we have similar stories in the subcontinent too. Mustafa Kemal is Lee of Singapore or Deng of China, no less.
    Even in Turkish History, he should be rated as high as Suleiman the magnificent.

    Except his version of secularism meant changing holy scripture to "adapt" to the modern world. No Muslim majority country would ever accept this level of secularism.

    Also, comparing a secularist to a communist that is holding millions of a minority people against their will is a bit much, don't you think?

    Lee Kuan Yew, on the other hand was a gentle leader that ruled with anything but the iron fist. He allowed religions of all forms to co-exist, creating in my opinion the most perfect "melting pot" if you will. I find it incredibly humbling to see a Hindu temple just down the streets from a church and a mosque, all existing in almost perfect harmony with each other. And it's because of this, I have always admired LKY and what he has achieved, especially considering the timespan in which he achieved it. Singapore is a modern marvel, unfortunately its seen as little more than an off-shore money launderers paradise due to their incorporation & banking secrecy laws.

      What are you referring to by LKY?

        LKY is short-hand for Lee Kuan Yew, who was the first prime minister of the Republic of Singapore. I've always admired him, despite our school history textbooks painting him as somewhat of a far-eastern Stalin of sorts. It is because of him that Singapore has achieved unparalleled success in such a short period of time.

        I will always have a soft spot for that man, and the country he helped build. Singapore is one of my favorite countries to move to.
