In his conversations, Esteemed Adnan Oktar frequently states that the struggle against terrorism and the materialist philosophies should be carried out through methods of knowledge such as distributing books and getting across the miracles of the Quran, the truths of faith and the tenets of Islam. He also addresses this issue in many of his articles that are published in the newspapers abroad. One of these newspapers is Gulf Today.
Similarly, the Dubai Sheikh Maktoum launched a campaign named "The Reading Nation" and distributed 5 million books to children in the month of Ramadan.
The article by Adnan Oktar published in the Gulf Times & Daily Mail, June 5th, 2016
ADNAN OKTAR: It should not be forgotten that having most of the Islamic world under its influence, the ideology of bigotry poses the greatest obstacle for prosperity, progress and welfare to blossom, and of course, it gives rise to the most ruthless radicalism. If sincere and rational Muslims want to develop a solution to the issue of radicalism, they must absolutely realize the danger it poses and tackle it through knowledge and wisdom.

ADNAN OKTAR: The best way to struggle against terrorism is to distribute books, tell people of the truths of faith, the miracles of Quran, talk about brotherhood, love, and peace.

ADNAN OKTAR: It cannot be achieved through violent methods; only through love, through wisdom. The best course to follow is to reason with them through love, wisdom, peace and science.
Resorting to compulsion is not right. What you can do is to communicate with them; those who are sincerely on your side will join you. This is a wonderful blessing of democracy. This method is practiced by neither the bigoted mentality, nor the Orthodox-traditionalist Islamic conception, or communist, Marxist-Leninist system. The right thing to do is to invite people to peace and brotherhood. The entire Mideast could become a paradise if desired so.

ADNAN OKTAR: Muslims should be pure, sincere, high-class and advocate the Quran; they should tackle against superstitions and bigotry; they should personally practice love compassion, mercy; they should get across the truths and miracles of the Quran, the truths of faith.
