M. Fethullah Gülen: educator, mystic, peacebuilder

Turkish Cleric, Accused in Coup Plot, Calls Crackdown ‘Dark Pages’ in History
The Turkish Muslim cleric accused by Turkey of plotting a failed coup two months ago denounced the repression of his supporters, calling the crackdown “dark pages in world history.” The severity of the crackdown in Turkey has raised concerns in the United States and Europe that Mr. Erdogan has used the failed coup as a pretext to eradicate political rivals and groups he deems a threat to his power.

‘Mr. Gülen is to me simultaneously both incredibly modest and a visionary’
I’m inspired by the Hizmet Movement.

And why do we care that he goes to his death at the hands of a man who had good things to say about Hitler’s system of government.
