Re: Turkey News, discussions, India Turkey Relations

All these semantics that this turk or that turk is lost on the less informed Aam Abduls. The amm abduls belief that the turks ruled them (before Mughals).

Zero doubt that 100% isn't fiction but the % of fact and fiction is tough to make out, I guess.

Mostly, actual events are real( it surely explains the furious Paki response on IA/IAF targets) but knowingly, typos and mistakes ( like Sudarshan LGB etc) are added to keep everyone guessing
