Nowadays I am preoccupied by the traffic accident I had last week. Since I had to rest, I read Hanefi Avcı’s book “Devotee Residents of Haliç: Yesterday State, Today Religious Community.”
Usually excerpts on the Fethullah Gülen Movement are being discussed. But Avcı mentions so many other things that happened in the recent past. So, they need be opened to discussion, too. First of all, we see Avcı goes through a political-personal self questioning and explains how he questioned, in time, being the “Hunter of the State” – his last name means Hunter in English. I believe his “sincerity”. Summary of his political self-questioning is included in a section titled “It was the state yesterday, but the [Gülen] community today”.
I object to this summary.
