The founder of modern Turkey Mustafa kamal wanted Turkey to be a secular. He banned publicly displaying of religion. After the advent of Erdogan, turkey is losing its secular values and it is turned into an Islamic state. President Erdogan is currently a de facto leader of the Muslim world. Turkey has maintained good relations with all Muslim countries. It is also a member of NATO. Turkey along with Malaysia and Pakistan is deciding to launch a new currency that will be used by all the Muslim countries for trading.
