Adnan Oktar: Acting together, becoming brothers and sisters and gathering around one leader is a religious duty required for all Muslims, which is commanded by Allah in the Qur’an… Muslims will fulfill this duty. That’s why I am expressing that let’s form a Turkic Islamic Union under the leadership of Turks, Turkish Nation. Let each state keep their national identity and be free, but let one spiritual leader be the head of them.Since the Christians have a moral leader, the Pope, it is necessary for Muslims to have a moral leader as well. If this moral union owns a leader, this anarchy and disorder will come to an end. In that case, if any Muslim living in any corner of the world gets hurt on his fingertip, all the Muslims would act together and stop the incidence. But if Muslims live separately as it is now and become accessible to the politics of ‘split and swallow’, of course it is easy to swallow the small pieces. However it is out of question to swallow a huge block of Muslim world. Hence, the Muslims need to fulfill this religious obligation at once.
