No. The Gülen Movement is a service movement that arose from civil efforts and projects in which Islamic morality and ethics responded constructively to development and global challenges. The Gülen Movement promotes morality and service ethics that aim to fuse with, rather than combat, the socio-political needs, developments or institutions of the contemporary world. In an order open to civil society, initiatives like the Gülen Movement should lead to reform and improvement of local and national decision-making processes, and standards of democracy and social justice.
