I think, we, Turks helped them during their independance struggle too..

I heard stories such as women gave their golden bracelets in Turkey for them.

And Pakistan is a place where you can say ´you are Turkish´ and all the doors open for you. (As a Turk, you feel like you are more priviledged than any other nation really. Definetely more than British )

They take Turkey as an example for many things. I listened many people talking to me about Ataturk and how Turkey and Ataturk were taught to them in schools.

There are many army officers exchange between two countries. I heard many pakistanies who visited Turkey saying that ´they felt as if they are home in Turkey´

 Ooooo!  I am surprised you have not had a barrage of abuse for this one! {#lang_emotions_lol}  Turkey is part in Europe and mostly in Asia.  The split is at the Bosphorus which runs through Istanbul from the Marmara Sea to the Black Sea (or the other way - not sure which way the water flows!)

Hi, I am from Pakistan.  There is some background that might be useful for you to understand the issue.

 

First muslim dynasty of India, from 1250 to about 1500 AD was Turkish speaking.  They were central asian turks and people living in modern day afghanistan. Later, mughals (from dynasty of Taimur) become ruler of India. They were also Turkish speaking people. So for a long time, Turkish was the language of the court and most muslim officials of the court were from Turkish race.  Later in mughal era, Farsi (persian) became language of the court and remained so for about 3 centuries.

 

This leaves us with a lot of common vocabulary and customs. The name of language of muslims of India - Urdu - is itself from Turk origin.

 

Muslim rulers used to take the "Letter of Legitimacy" for their rule from the Muslim Caliph.  And as such, till end of Khilafat (caliphate), muslim rulers of India too that letter from Ottoman Caliph and Ottoman Caliph was considered the ultimate authority for Indian Muslim rulers.  As such, Ottomans and Turks were considered "one of us", and "brothers".

 

During Ottoman/Russian wars of 19th century, and then later Balkan wars, indian muslims supported Turks.  The first Urdu novel, Fasana Azad, written in first or second decade of 1800s, is about a muslim youth of india who goes to Turkey to fight with Ottoman armies against Russians.

 

During first world war, and then later Turkish war of independence, muslims of India physically, monetarily and politically supported Turks.  The unrest in India, "The Jewel of British  Crown", was so strong that british court had to promise to Indian muslims that they´ll protect Turkish state and Caliphate and won´t break it up.

 

And if I remember correctly, it was a time when Turks were fighting alone.  Arabs and other muslims have been fighting against Turks and were giving full support to British and Allied armies. So in my opinion, at that time when Turks lost almost whole country to the invaders, the support of Indian muslims gave them tremendous moral boost and valuable gold to buy weapons.  And Turks still remember their nearly only allies in that war that without any self interest helped them.

 

Pakistan is generally a very hospitable nation.  Even Americans are met with very good hospitality (unless off course they go to taliban area), but if you say you are a Turk, you immediately become a good friend if not part of family.

 

And so far, this has been my own experience with Turks as well. They like Pakistanis.
