Do Fethullah Gülen and the Gülen Movement harbor aspirations to evolve into a political party or gain political power?
Fethullah Gülen and the Gülen Movement do not have any such aspirations, as has been observed and repeatedly confirmed by Fethullah Gülen and participants, and many observing scholars and journalists. On the contrary, Fethullah Gülen represents the continuation of a long Sufi tradition of seeking to address the spiritual needs of the people, to educate the masses, and to provide some stability in times of turmoil. Like many previous such figures, he is wrongly accused of seeking political power.
