"Fethullah" Book was Presented at the National University of Rosario
"Fethullah Gülen: the enigmatic Turkish network reaches Argentina" is a book written by Pablo Kendikian, Director of Prensa Armenia news agency, in 2014, where he narrates the life and works of the Turkish preacher and the arrival of the Movement in Argentina.
The interest in the Gülen Movement skyrocketed in July, when President of Turkey Recep Tayyip Erdogan accused the cleric and his followers of having organized and carried out the coup against his government, initiating an unprecedented purge among police, military, teachers, judges, journalists and state officials suspected of belonging to the Gülen Movement or "Hizmet".
The research was presented by professor at the University of San Andres, Khatchik DerGhougassian, who wrote the book's foreword and the author Pablo Kendikian. "The merit of the research was to detail the scope of the Gülen Movement globally," said Kendikian before a large audience. He added that the "parallel state" that is now denounced by President Erdogan was built with his permission. "Erdogan and Gülen were complementary in building the repressive state of Turkey today. They are two extremes of the same policy that is now turning against one of the parties," said the author.
