MEXICO

A group of Turkish, American and Mexican academics came together at National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) to discuss the Hizmet Movement’s progression from past to present.

At the meeting held in the school’s Fes Acatlan campus, Dr. James Harrington delivered a presentation on Fethullah Gulen’s understanding of law and his trial. Author of several books and articles on Hizmet Movement, Harrington said, “What Gulen Movement’s has been going through in Turkey today is like recurrence of “28 February” (the military memorandum in 1997). It faced the same allegations and slanders back then. But Gulen followed the legal procedures and got acquitted.”

Mehmet Siginir, Cascada Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief, in his presentation in Spanish, discussed the movement’s historical dynamics and experiences starting from Bediuzzaman Said Nursi’s time to present.

Dr. Juan Manuel Portilla Gomez in his address, pointed to the magnitude and global recognition of the movement.
