    One of the greatest leaders of his time that modernized a country and society that witnessed the upheaval and destruction of WW1. Thanks to him Turkey gave women equal rights long before any Muslim country had even envisioned, he turned a socially conservative society into a secular society which could join the new age and progress, he gave equal rights to women and took the power away from religious clergy which should be copied throughout the Muslim world.

    Yes what would have happened to Turkey without the legendary Pasha? He took on multiple powers who wanted to eat out of Turkey's land, dishonour its women and enslave the old folk and children. He didn't let it happen.

    You're not just a hero to Turkey dear Pasha, you're one to me as well.
