The Gülen movement (Gülen Hareketi, in Turkish) is an Islamic transnational religious and social movement led by Turkish preacher Fethullah Gülen, who has lived in the United States since 1999.
Fethullah Gülen is mostly inspired by Said Nursi who was believing that modern science and logic was the way of the future. He advocated teaching religious sciences in secular schools and modern sciences in religious schools.
Fethullah Gülen is considered by Recep Tayyip Erdogan by the mastermind behind the Turkish coup attempt.
Education (through a network of private schools extending to 1,300 schools worldwide), Media (with the newspaper Zaman and TV channels), Interfaith dialogue and humanitarian aid are the main focus of actions for the Movement.
