No problem. A similar language and culture was part of it; but the more damning part was the propaganda that flowed into Macedonia once Turkish authorities allowed the Bulgarian Church jurisdiction in Macedonia in the 1870s. Instead of learning about Macedonian history, culture and language, students were being told they were Bulgarian and began learning the Bulgarian language and history.
