Norway has an established church as well - no idea why that's not listed.

It doesn't mean much anyway. There are states with no official established church that are far less secular than places with them. Norway, Denmark and the UK are amongst the most secular countries in the world, despite having state religions.

Turkey is not an islamic country. Turkey is a secular country with a muslim majority.
What is normal is the parliment reflect the society. I dont see any danger in muslims represent theirshelf in the parliment. Present Turkey isnt a country like Egyp or Iran of different age. It is a country with high litteracy rate, free market economy. There are strong infrastructure of law sytem as a result of centuries old developments.

Do you think how many of the voters who support AKP demand teocratic dictatorship?

I invite you to discuss this in this thread of Essa
