Dear Sir or Madam, On behalf of the Mozaiky Platform Dialog we would like to invite you to our next meeting from the Dialogue Talks discussion series. Our goal is to provide a broad platform for meeting over current topics. Our discussions want help better understanding current issues. We are offering a space for dialogue about these issues because we consider dialogue in today's globalized world as an important way to mutual understanding. Panel discussion: WHO IS FETHULLAH GÜLEN: Putchist or peaceful cleric? Who is Fethullah Gülen, islamic preacher and theologian, who lives since the end of the 1990s in self imposed exile in Pensylvania? His thoughts gained a broad base of supporters. People inspired by his teachings run many schools, health facilities and organizations for intercultural dialogue all around the world. His followers say Gülen is an advocate for peace, democracy and religious tolerance. But Turkish government sees him as a traitor, as the head of an terrorist organization, the mastermind of the recent attempted coup and asks US to arrest and extradite Gülen. Who actually is Fethullah Gülen? Panelists: PAVEL HOŠEK, Religious studies scholar, Academic. ÖZCAN KEELS, Barrister, Academic, Activist. Moderator: JAN FINGERLAND, Journalist. Date: 12.10.2016.
