Well, I guess when you take personal issues into the public sphere, you can expect problems like that. It´s her own choice of course to marry who she wants or not, and having been to Silopi, and seen the dominant attitudes and way of life there, I can see why she wouldn´t want to marry into a family there. There are not many women with modern attitudes that could be comfortable in that environment and with those expectations.

Actually it tries to point to the negative feelings (I don´t want to use bad names here) in Turks´ subconscious minds towards Kurds. See the bold text, that´s the point what they are trying to make.

A rooted tradition in which two families exchange daughters to be
brides for their sons, called "berdel," caused a young girl to hang
herself in the southeastern province of Gaziantep, Turkish daily Star
reported Friday.
  Emine A., 22, had been promised to marry Fethi T. while her brother
was to marry Fethi T.´s sister, Naime T.
  During the wedding preparations, the families of the couples had an
argument and decided to break the "berdel" deal. Emine A. was
allegedly depressed over the tension between two families and hanged
herself from a rope from the ceiling of her family´s home.

The most absurd thing about this post is that such a TV show exists!!! {#emotions_dlg.puking}

Isn´t it something similar to The Bachelor or whatever the programme is called here? I wonder how ok it would be for an American contestant to say she wouldn´t want to meet an Afro-American candidate in the States

It only shows that "brotherhood" days are now over. Kurds have been foolish enough to allow themselves to be led into antagonizing the rest of the country. Somebody will have to pay for this.

There is nothing subconcious about people electing more than 4 Presidents of Kurdish origin in a Republic, barely 100 years old. I doubt if any Kurd will ever see that seat again.

Again, why don´t you just stop beating about the bush and publish your proposals for ethnically cleansing Turkey.  Ataturk did not do a good enough job...

“Ayakta bevletmek dinimizce uygun değil” diyerek cami tuvaletlerindeki pisuvarları söktürmesiyle gündeme gelen eski OrduValisi Ali Kaban, Başbakan’a danışman oldu.

 

Translation:

The former governor of Ordu, Ali Kaban has been appointed as a consultant to Turkish PM Tayyip Erdoğan. Kaban is remembered with his word about urinals and removing them from WCs of Mosques in Ordu.

 

He had said:

"It´s not acceptable according to our religion to pee on foot"!
