Fethullah Gülen himself never approves and never uses the terms “Gülen Movement” or “Gülen Community.” He prefers the action to be called “the Volunteers’ Service” because this does not connote any contentious otherness, political separatism or a conflictual front. He insists that the Gülen Movement does not and must not involve conflict, and that the volunteers’ service must be offered within a certain framework of principles.
