Gulen’s books draw large interest at Indonesia’s book fair

Fethullah Gulen’s books have attracted an immense attention at the Islamic Books Fair in Jakarta, Indonesia. Republika Publishing officials selling Gulen’s books at their stalls expressed their contentment over the high interest from fair visitors. Pak Ikbal, Republika Publishing’s director, said their stalls drew the most visitors at the fair. “The Honorable Gulen’s books attract great attention. Now we have realized what a great idea it was to translate his books into Indonesian. His “Questions and Answers” and “The Messenger of God: Muhammad” have sold out. These two have been among best sellers anyway. We have marked “best seller” on new editions of both.”

Ikbal further said they went into overdrive to complete “Emerald Hills of the Heart” on time and made it available to the Indonesian readers at the fair. Indonesian readers are quite familiar with Gulen and they can’t wait to have his other books too available in Indonesian.

Currently, eight of Gulen’s book are available in Indonesian by Republika Publishing under Mahaka Media, one of the country’s largest media groups.

The state, AKP, Religious Affairs Directorate, Alevis and rights

The ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) claimed it would minimize the space the state occupies in people’s lives and reduce bureaucracy and downsize the public sector when it was first elected to office. During the early years of its rule, it really moved to achieve these targets. But as it increased its control over the entire state apparatus, it has increasingly become yet another typical Turkish ruling party that prioritizes the state.

Should We Send A Man We Know Is Innocent To His Death Abroad?

Wow…realpolitik will take precedence. It’s okay to send Gulen to his death. What do we care about the execution of a Muslim cleric who paid for full-page ads in the New York Times to condemn 9/11 attacks, the Charlie Hebdo attacks, and ISIS, forged ties between Jews, Christians and Muslims, who came to America because of our freedoms, and will honor our request, putting his fate in God’s hands, and our own. 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.
