What skdadl says is correct, however there are also secularists who are very progressive indeed, and some are on the far left.
Lots of Turkish people in the neighbourhood where I'm staying. Quite a range of dress among the women; most men, except a very few, are dressed just like Dutchmen, though few seem to wear shorts.
I do remain concerned about the resurgence of religious world views, though at this point I'm far more concerned about Poland than about Turkey, at least in terms of secularism. There remain serious democratic deficits in the country, though it is not alone in elements of national oppression (Kurds). The situation of Roma (gypsies) in many Central European countries, including the nice democratic Czech Republic, is as shameful as the condition of Aboriginal peoples in Canada.
