Erdogan: We are the guarantor of everyone's way of life

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan yesterday again criticized main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Deniz Baykal and some media outlets over their opposition to ending the university headscarf ban. Speaking at a ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) meeting, Erdogan said that his government doesn't discriminate between women who wear headscarves and those who don't. "We are the guarantor of everyone's way of life," he said. "If a woman who doesn't wear a headscarf hasn't seen us do anything against her so far, she won't in the future either." Noting that several large cities in Turkey are being governed by AKP mayors, he asked, "What have you seen (in their governance) besides service and care?" He added, "We have devoted ourselves to all of Turkey."
