Fethullah Gulen: No Return from Democracy!

Fethullah Gulen speaks at the commencement reception of Journalists and Writers Foundation in 1994:

As with the entire world, people in Turkey are also heading towards democracy. To date, majority of the people in Turkey have lived only with the ten percent of democracy; they were able to get only one tenth of it, and have survived up to this date with that.

I believe, from now on, both in Turkey and in the rest of the world, there will we no going back from democracy.
