BADAKSHAN

Turkish Charity organization Kimse Yok Mu and Turkish Schools in Afghanistan delivered next party of aid consisting of food and other basic requirements for the Afghani families who lost their homes in Friday’s landslide in northeastern Badakshan province.

Speaking to Cihan News Agency, reporter at the disaster zone Badakshan Governor Shah Veliyullah Edib said they are very grateful to Kimse Yok Mu and Turkish volunteers who managed to arrive in province and brought aid with them despite many difficulties.

Afghanistan’s Natural Disaster Management Authority Director Mohammad Daim Kakar stated that they will never forget Turkish people’s devotion during Afghanistan’s hard times.

One of Kimse Yok Mu volunteers at the disaster zone, Soner Afat said they could reach to Badakshan in one-and-half day.

“We brought food and other basic supplies and distributed them to 1,000 families in need,” Afat added.

The landslide merely sponged out a village in Argo district of Badakshan while more than 2,500 people were trapped under the mug in almost 300 houses. Reportedly, rescue teams could only reach dead bodies of 250 people.

Father Thomas Michel in his new book titled “Peace and Dialogue in a Plural Society: Contributions of the Hizmet Movement at a Time of Global Tensions” explores how Fethullah Gulen and his movement are one of those voices speaking most vocally in favor of a world community, where different faiths and nations can come together at one table to solve the multitude of problems facing today’s world.

Hizmet movement resembles Western civil society groups and organizations in terms of creating public discussion platforms and performing education and unity-related activities. In addition, what makes the movement more important is that it does not depend on the state in order to survive and sustain its effectiveness.

Some say, “You [Gülen Movement] are acting as the honorary ambassadors, counselors, and attachés, are you the alternative to the state? My answer is as follows: If some people are taking care of the business in the places where you cannot reach, you have to only admire and compliment them.

Foreword to “The Gulen Movement: Civic Service without Borders”

I have long been an admirer of Fethullah Gulen not only because he speaks of and promotes a compassionate version of Islam, but also because the movement he has inspired enables that vision by establishing educational institutions that practise and embody what they teach.
