Turkish Cypriot hypocrisy or timidness?

I have a question of judgement, of principle, to ask members of the Turkish Cypriot ethnic minority community of Cyprus. Please don't give me the "It's none of my business" or "I've never been to Turkey" talk. When asked about nuclear proliferation we don't refuse to comment because we've never been to Hiroshima. And Turkey is your savior, is she not? My question is:

Do you or not support that Kurds should have the same rights in Turkey as you want to enjoy in Cyprus? Yes or No? 

Note that you both constitute circa 20% of the respective populations.

Turkey's Kurds & Cyprus' tCypriots

As either unitary state or federation solutions are discussed as replacements to Cyprus' 1960 and Turkey's 1923 unworkable constitutions, should we abide by "if a right is a right too many for Turkey's Kurdish community (circa 23% of population) then that right is a right too many for Cyprus' tCypriot community too (circa 15%), and vice versa." Is the adoption of this fair logic the catalyst to securing just solutions for both UN countries.
