(p.136) Chapter Seven Ottoman Memories, Republican Realities
Ottoman Ulema, Turkish Republic
Stanford University Press

This chapter discusses the political and social changes in postwar Turkey. The desirable form of secularism in a democratic regime and the future of Islamic institutions in the republic became the focus of heated debates. Many of those who lived through the end of the Ottoman Empire and the institution of the assertive and domineering secularism of the early republic sought to help steer Turkey toward a reassertion of the role of Islam in public life in general and in the revitalization of Islamic institutions in particular. The relaxation of curbs on the press in the late 1940s also allowed Islamists to express their views and political visions relatively freely, for the first time since 1925.
