Similarities Between Mr. Tayep Erdogan and Mr. Nawaz Sharif

“O you who have believed, enter into Islam completely [and perfectly] and do not follow the footsteps of Satan. Indeed, he is to you a clear enemy.”

(Holy Quran 2: 208)

Last week people went about comparing the government of Mr. Nawaz Sharif and that of Mr. Erdogan after the coup attempt. I started a comparison myself and came up with the following results.

One can easily see the double standards of judgment by many people:
