Turkey´s religious and conservative segments do not apply social pressure on others around them, contrary to what some have suggested in the past, but the prevalence of intolerance in the country is significant, according a new survey. 

 

The new study seems to contradict the results of a 2008 survey conducted by Professor Binnaz Toprak from Boðaziçi University on secular minorities in Anatolian cities, which indicated that the subject groups had the perception of conservative "neighborhood pressure" in their daily lives.

 

Researchers from the Bahçeþehir University, who conducted 1,715 face-to-face interviews in 33 provinces in Turkey as part of the survey on radicalism and extremism in Turkey, found that only 10 percent of society felt they were subject to social discrimination and societal pressure because of their religious beliefs. Five percent said they faced discrimination over religious beliefs from their immediate surroundings, a situation the Turkish media has come to refer to as “neighborhood pressure.” Four percent said they had faced social discrimination because of their religious denomination, 6 percent say they face both social and state discrimination because of their mother tongue and 4 percent say they face social discrimination because of being secular, while 5 percent say they have felt societal and state discrimination because they are women.

 I love these surveys, where they can form the basis of public opinion from a practically incalculable %  population, around 56 people per province - what is the population? over 70 million? Unsure

How nicely you are showing off.  I bet you are also a member of the übermensh.

Sorry to surprize you but there are tons of people here who consider these just the first step.

What im curious about is...where did they gather the samples of their survey ?!

Ý mean, they are talking about Türkiye, then that means they went West, North, East and south of Türkiye, they asked people at the villages as well ?!

Doubting it !

 What´s the difference? The figures are not good I think. And while in most countries - as you yourself said about yours - villagers are mainly not the most progressive ones......

 The difference is... it doesnt represent Türkiye !

People in Türkiye spreading through the country, they dont just live in Ýzmir, Ýstanbul, Ankara and Antalya

So if i made a survay concerning only those, i cant say it represent the whole country.

If it only was done in these (and other) big cities, it would give an idea of how the people in West-Turkey think. If Eastern villages - called backwards by Western Turks themselves!!!, not by me, I love it there - were included, I think the figures would be even worse. City people are mostly more modern and open-minded than village people (you said so months ago about Egypt).

 It looks like a Professor  from a very good university (Boðaziçi University) has done the survey and she says  "it represents Turkiye".

But you dont think its represents Turkiye?

So you know better than the professor? Are you an expert in surveys?
