Bernard Lewis is well known scholar. He apraised and supported secularism in Turkey for a long time. But I read his strong critics nowadays and I disagree. Because first we should know that secularism is not ateism. I also believe that secularism is necessary but we sould define it well. I support positive secularism which supports the integration of pious people into the system without letting them manipulate the tenets of the religion. Otherwise we always experience tension coz there was and will be pious ones.
