Fr. Thomas Michel
Fethullah Gulen Chair at the UIN Syarif Hidayatullah Jakarta, Indonesia hosted a conference titled The Significance of the Education for the Future: The Gulen Model of Education.

Fr. Thomas Michel (Secretary, Vatican Secretariat for Inter-religious Dialogue), was interviewed at the opening reception:

I think, the “Gulen schools”, if we would call them that, they are really one of the most significant educational ventures going on in the world today. The more people understand what the goals are and what is being accomplished by these schools; I think, it is important that people knew that. And I think that the schools are so much oriented towards pluralistic society, towards tolerance, towards love, towards service. I think that really makes a contribution to world understanding and peace.
