Ah, not exactly, we drink more than the rest of the world when we're in the doldrums, that very prohibition is only valid for them zealots, which most of us are nothing of the sort!

Same like us Bosniaks Regular smile A lot of friends have asked me: Do Bosnian Muslims eat pork or drink alcohol? My answer was: It depends on the individual. A friend of mine didn't drink, but ate pork, other didn't eat pork neither drink and smoke and so on. There are like 3 or 4 Bosniak categories. The ones who are religious, they are Muslims, and follow Islam to an extent (as any Muslim in the World) and they do not want to know anything about alcohol, point-blank. Bosniaks who are completely secular but do not want to drink any alcoholic product since they still believe in it’s bad sides and therefore for personal religious reasons or for logical ones won’t touch it. Bosniaks who’re defining themselves as Muslims, and that do understand the religious law that forbid any consumption of alcohol but tend to drink because of learned it as a bad habit, similarly to how people start smoking cigarettes, they’re not making excuse for it, but consume it the same way that Northern Africans use cannabis related products (hashish and weed for example) and Bosniaks who’re completely secular (some consider themselves Muslims, Agnostics or Atheists), and don’t care about drinking at all, they don’t necessarily consume alcohol by a lot, but wouldn’t think twice as if it’s OK in Islam to do so

Turks drink even more than Russians. Regular smile

I can't believe that. Erdoğan was criticized for a bottle on his table Regular smile

Haha, did Erdoğan put a drink on his table? I can't believe it either. Teeth smile
A large part of Turkey is in love with raki. But not Erdoğan...

Олег Л.Олег Л.    Thu, 31/12/2020 - 15:08

That's right! There was a bottle of raki.

Well, it's probably because he's the president of the republic, we're talking about the common people here, scratch him from the list, I live in Izmir, and everyone here drinks a lot of Rakı, that blossomed into tradition as a matter of fact, not drinking Rakı when you happen to pass Izmir is forbidden, unless you're responsive to drinks!

My grandfather used to make raki by himself from grapes and other fruits like Hurma (Persimmon) or plums. It was really delicious. He used a very traditional technique which I adored to look at when I was a kid

Even though they were 'moral guards', even when I went to Iran, I saw farms with a lot of grape trees to make wine...

BalkantürkBalkantürk    Thu, 31/12/2020 - 15:29

In theory in Iran you can't. If you drink alcohol there you would get immediately into a big trouble and all the moralists will torture you back to existence Teeth smile Jokes aside, of course you can drink alcohol in Iran. I mean alcoholic beverages, because some people do actually drink raw alcohol and then get paralyzed or die because of it. Manufacturing, distribution and consumption of alcoholic beverages is illegal in Iran. That means that if the police get you while you’re doing it, you will be fined and jailed. However, many people do it, especially in areas of the country where a party culture is more frequent, and it is a relatively big problem for the authorities. I would have to see countries like Chechenia or Saudi Arabia because they are also moral guards

I'm ashamed of never hearing this... Teeth smile
Although most of them are Muslim, they drink alcohol. I see even people who say 'I don't drink' drink. Turkey is not like Iran or other Arab countries.

I'm not sure what is in the glass in this photo is raki. It is probably 'ayran' in the glass, not raki. Regular smile

esraa.esraa.    Fri, 01/01/2021 - 22:09

I'm sure it is ayran.
This news was never done in Turkey. This is completely fake news. Regular smile
Believe me, even if Erdoğan drinks alcohol, he will not do it in public.

An alcohol scene from a cult Soviet film. Balkantürk and Lucífer know Russian.

I wish I knew Russian too. Regular smile

One of the best soviet movies called "Ирония судьбы" (The Irony of Fate, or Enjoy Your Bath). Every December 31st we watch this movie at home. It's a story about a man who misplaced the cities and found his love during the one special night - New Year's celebration. A small resume: A group of old friends have a tradition of going to a public bathing house on New Years eve. Incidentally, they drink too much vodka and beer. It makes two of them unconscious. The problem is that one of them, a man called Sasha has to go to Leningrad but another one Zhenya goes instead of him. Zhenya wakes up at Leningrad airport. Believing that he is still in Moscow he takes a taxi and goes home. The street name, building and even apartment number, the way an apartment complex looks the same and the key coincide completely - just typical Soviet-type 'economy' architecture but it's Nadia's home and not Zhenya. Imagine the surprise of Nadya when she enters her apartment and finds a man without trousers in her bed. What's more - Nadya's fiancé also finds him there... Teeth smile

Well done, Dora! You know Russian culture. We have been watching that film every year on December 31th since 1976.

Thank you. I will watch when I have free time.
Maybe you can make a collection about Russian movies?
This place is reserved for Turkish drinks. Regular smile
