Even though most South Asian Muslims have closer ties to Gulf Arab both economically and theologically as millions of them work in the Gulf and Wahhabis invested heavily in Madrassas across the region, a cultural nostalgia for the Turks remain. Leaving Kerala aside(which is an exception), most Muslim rulers in the Indian subcontinent were of Turkic stock. In most Hindu texts, the Muslim invaders were referred as 'Turushkas'. Even in spoken dialects, Muslims were called as 'Turka'.

Interesting. Of course, it's worth noting that Central Asia appears to have been the Turks' original homeland--with some of them only moving to Anatolia in the 13th century as a result of the Mongol invasions and conquests.

Greeks call themselves "ethnos anadelfon", which means "brotherless nation", but some consider Cypriots as "brothers", others see them as if "we are the same"
