World - Erdogan slams ridicule of `Muslims discovered Americas` claim

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday hit back at ridicule of his claim that Islamic explorers discovered the Americas three centuries before Columbus, accusing his Muslim critics of lacking `self-confidence`. In an aggressive rebuttal of the criticism heaped in some quarters on his comments, Erdogan also suggested that the purported `discovery` of the Americas by Muslims should be taught in schools. `A big responsibility falls on the shoulders of the national education ministry and YOK (higher education board) on this issue,` Erdogan said at a ceremony in Ankara. Erdogan, a pious Muslim who has been in power for more than a decade, stirred up controversy on Saturday when he claimed the Americas were discovered by Muslims in the 12th century, nearly three centuries before Christopher Columbus.
