Today on World Refugee Day, I join the global community in showing support for millions of refugees around the world who were displaced due to conflict and persecution and who are going through an extremely difficult journey as a result.  

It is distressing to see that the refugee crisis is getting worse each day and that millions of families are torn apart. In addition to the tragedy that these families have to leave their homes, they are sometimes faced with hate speech in their new homes. We should not forget that every human’s dignity should be respected and as part of the human family, we should open our hearts to everyone regardless of what part of the world they come from. We should all strive to ensure that refugees are welcomed in our communities. 

I pray to God, the Most Merciful, to help us eliminate conflicts in this world so that no one should have to flee their homes to feel safe. May God give all those who have been displaced strength and perseverance to build a new life for themselves, their families, and their communities. 

Fethullah Gülen

It’s not about a conflict between the government and Hizmet movement

Insanity ripples through the country, the media and the people. If graft or corruption is the prevailing form of life spreading from the state to society, and if this form of life is supported by people, then we are hitting the bottom day by day. A prosecutor can say “We can detain 500 thousand people if necessary” and still hold his post as if he said quite an ordinary thing. Whereas in Europe mental health of such a prosecutor would be called into question and most probably examined.
