Azerbaijan, Baku, 16 January /corr. Trend R.Hafizoglu / The discussions over the settlement of the problem of Muslim headscarf of women in Turkey, will not affect the democratic future of this country and can not bring coup d'etat. "Resolving the problem of headscarf (hijab) can not turn into coup d'etat," Turkish expert, Akif Emre, reported to Trend from Istanbul on 15 January.
A ban had been imposed on women in Turkey- for wearing headscarf in the higher educational institutions and State bodies. The believer women, who wish to receive the education, need to put off the headscarfs.
Rajab Teyyub Erdogan, Turkey's Prime Minister, stated that he will resolve the problem within a month, Turkish Yeni Shefget news agency reported with reference to Europe Press agency.
Emre considers that the problem of headscarf is in the hands of several forces. In addition, he believes that this issue will be resolved, as a result of Erdogan's successful policy. "The former Prime Minister of Turkey, Nejmeddin Erbakan, also tried to resolve this issue. However, the policy of Erbakan, who differed with his keen policy, could not resolve this problem. The main issue was that he was not supported by the government in this regard," the expert said.
According to Arif Keskin, the politician of the Eurasian Center of Strategic Studies in Turkey, the situation in the country testifies the prompt settlement of the problem. He said that the opposition Party of National Movement also supports the settlement of the problem.
He also considers that resolving the problem will not bring to coup d'etat. "The Turkish army is capable to carry out coup d'etat. However, the closeness between the army and government provides grounds to say that no coup d'etat will take place," Keskin said.
