Yesterday I visited Turkish embassy for submission of visa application. I confirmed the timings of embassy on their website as well via phone; they confirmed that they are open from 9am to 12pm during Ramadan. I reached there in time but I observed there that they were behaving just like Pakistanis; people with contact were being entertained on preferential basis while ordinary people were ignored.

Few were not even allowed inside, they had arrived at 6am most had come from remote areas, and these people were turned back without any reason. This shocked me and I could find no reason for such behaviour from such a friendly country. I would like to ask the relevant authorities to look into the matter. Do all Embassies treat people with Pakistani passports in the same manner? If that is the case we must know why?
