Sincere Muslims should counter radicalism with the Quran
Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated February 25th, 2016
ADNAN OKTAR: Bigotry is a grave danger. The world deep state plans to eliminate bigotry through massacre. A Muslim massacre of immense proportions is close at hand. Bigotry must be renounced. The prominent figures of Muslim countries should put an end to bigotry. First, woman rights should be fully granted to women ensuring equality between women and men. Also, women should not be interfered about their clothing, beauty and elegance. Understanding and empathy should be exercised. Bigoted conception is as wrong and dangerous. Quality and modernity should reign supreme in everything. We should vehemently oppose the violence-promoting false hadiths and dreadful practices that have no place in Islam and the Qur'an. This is where ISIS, Taliban, al-Qaeda draw their ideologies from. We should not feign ignorance in this, as it will pave the way for a major disaster. Turkey should lead in this modernity by being a modern country. We should forge a nation that is modern in every aspect. Our youth should be more modern. We should become a country that equals or surpasses the likes of Denmark and Norway in terms of modernity. Otherwise, destruction is around the corner and it will lead us to our ruin. They should consider ten years from now. Bigotry is on the rise. Bigotry is an unabashed, vicious and insidious mentality. It is and insidious disease like tuberculosis that eats the body up inside. We should take precautions against it. And Mr. Erdoğan should become the Prime Minister. There is no such thing as Turkish model of Islam; no one would acknowledge such a thing. Because, if those hadiths are taken basis, then ISIS Islam, Taliban Islam, al-Qaeda Islam will take over Turkey and no other Islamic model will thrive. Turkish model of Islam is a recessive model; this issue cannot be dealt with through a reticent, pacifist method. There is no such model as Turkish model of Islam. We are surrounded by those who uphold a traditionalist orthodox Islamic conception similar to that of ISIS, Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Al-Nusra. We do not have an ideology that can withstand against them. We cannot stand out against them through a traditional orthodox Islamic conception. The state should take precautions against this.
