Fethullah Gulen: ISIL Actions Contradict Quran


Date posted: August 26, 2014

The Alliance for Shared Values, where Turkish scholar Fethullah Gulen is the honorary president, has issued a statement.

Fethullah Gulen has said that he deplores the brutal atrocities being committed by the terrorist group hiding behind a false religious rhetoric.

“Any form of attack, suppression or persecution of minorities or innocent civilians is an act that contradicts the principles of the Quran.”-Fethullah Gulen

He noted that the terrorists are either “completely ignorant” of the spirit of Islam and its messenger, or their actions are designed to serve their individual interests or those of their “political masters.”

The scholar also sent his condolences to the families and friends of the deceased in Iraq and Syria, and to the family and friends of slain journalist James Foley.

An influential author, Gulen topped the Foreign Policies 100 Global Thinkers list in 2008, he currently resides in rural Pennsilvania.
