Adnan Oktar: I’m Hanafi of the Sunni school. But I find my Shia brothers very god-fearing, very perfect. They are very nice people. They are true Muslims. In the same way, my Wahhabi brothers are most god-fearing and most religious also. They are people who enjoy religion very well. We are all like the students of a school. But of the same school. So we serve the same purpose. Because we have the same Allah, the same Book, the same Kiblah. We believe in the same Prophet (May Allah bless him and grant him peace), we believe in the same Prophets. We have everything in common. There is a competition only in fear of Allah. We compete for fearing Allah the most.
Interviewer: Muslims face massacres. Before in Bosnia. Now in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, what should be done about this in your view?
Adnan Oktar: It is forbidden for Muslims not to unite, not to act together. What is forbidden is a command. So according to the Qur’an, it is required for Muslims to act together, to become brothers and to unite around a leader. Muslims don’t do this. Muslims are going to carry out this command. What do I say that? Let there be a Turkish Islamic Union in the leadership of the Turks, of the Turkish state. Each country could stay as a separate national state. Each country acts freely in itself, but there is a spiritual leader. Because Christians have the Pope as leader. It is a must for Muslims to have a spiritual leader. If there is someone leading the spiritual union, then this turmoil and mischief could end. Then if something happens to a Muslim in anywhere of the world, it would be stopped immediately as all Muslims would be acting together. But if they are in pieces, and they act according to the politics of divide-dismantle-conquer, then of course it becomes easy to swallow little pieces. However, it is impossible to swallow a block made up of the Muslim community. Muslims should obey this command as soon as possible.
