Date posted: October 21, 2013
Turkish Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen is back in good health after being under medical observation for 12 hours on Sunday, herkul.org — a website that usually publishes Gülen’s speeches — announced on its Twitter account.
According to the statement made by herkul.org, Gülen was taken to hospital after suffering from arrhythmia, also known as heart rhythm abnormality, caused by sudden high blood pressure.
After being taken home following medical observation, Gülen received a telephone call from Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, who expressed to him his best wishes.
Earlier this year in March, Gülen conveyed his “get well soon” wishes to Erdoğan, who was taken to a hospital after catching a cold.
Gülen has been living in the US since 1999 because of health problems. The Islamic scholar, who has pioneered educational activities in a number of countries, along with efforts to promote intercultural and interfaith activities around the world, also suffers from diabetes.
