"Violence is not in the tradition of the Prophet" Fethullah Gülen’s op-ed piece in the Financial Times

Fethullah Gülen, the spiritual leader of the Turkish Muslim Hizmet movement, writes: “The question that we should ask ourselves as Muslims is whether we have introduced Islam and its Prophet properly to the world. Have we followed his example in such a way as to instil admiration? We must do so, not with words, but with our actions.When any negative comment is made about the Prophet, however slight it may be, a Muslim should feel deep sorrow. Yet expressing that sorrow is a different matter. Irresponsible actions by individuals damage the image of Islam and destroy the very tradition they are claiming to defend.”
