What does Gülen believe to be the main problem in the world?
Fethullah Gülen believes that the main problem in the world is lack of knowledge, and related problems concerning the production and control of knowledge. Producing, maintaining and disseminating knowledge can only be truly achieved through education, but not by party politics. Education is the key to becoming a better, productive and beneficial individual, whether one is Muslim or not. He believes also that the sciences, humanities and religion enhance and complement one another rather than compete and clash. The effectiveness and spread of the Gülen-inspired schools within and outside Turkey are evidence of the success of Gülen’s educational philosophy. This philosophy urges personal enlightenment and lays equal stress on the inculcation of ethical values and a sound training in the secular sciences.
