Mischief-makers and the Hizmet movement

Mischief-makers continue to work hard. Every objective conscience sees that the Hizmet movement now has to struggle for its rights and to defend itself against some unjust and fallacious accusations, such as that the Hizmet movement has created a parallel state, that it is an illegal organization and that it is even a junta.

The government keeps quiet while the Hizmet movement is exposed to such accusations. I swear that I have never seen such a period, during which lots of grim slander and black propaganda was prepared against the Hizmet movement. I think the main reason for these baseless accusations is jealousy. Members of the Hizmet movement opened schools in countries where no one knew anything about Turkey and where there were no Turkish embassies, and this movement is envied as the world’s biggest nongovernmental organization. If the Hizmet movement had been a movement related to politics, it would not be favored by large numbers of people and would not have international success. Reacting to the wrongdoings of the government is not solely reserved for the opposition parties. In a democracy, societies can show opposition to the government. When the Hizmet movement reacts to some steps taken by the government, mischief-makers take action against the Hizmet movement immediately.

A major scandal by the Mukhabarat state

The voice recordings of four phone calls made to Fethullah Gülen were posted on the Internet at midnight on Monday. As you know, Gülen lives in the US. Those who phoned him are some executives from institutions established and run by the people who are inspired by the Hizmet movement in Turkey. The calls do not have any incriminating content. Rather, one of these unlawfully wiretapped recordings exposes how the Hizmet movement was targeted in a conspiracy by circles close to the government.

Did you say extradition?

There is no crime attributed to Gülen and no investigation or court ruling against him. But one thing is certain: It is almost impossible that the US will respond positively to the Turkish government’s demand that Gülen be extradited.

It is fair to say that no government, no organization, no company, no social club could ignore and permit any attempt from within to destroy itself.

It is up to the independent courts, free of political pressure, to investigate both suspicions of a coup attempt and suspicions over large-scale corruption.
