PRLog - May 17, 2012 - NEWARK, N.J. -- The Punjab University conferred an honorary doctorate upon Turkish scholar, writer and opinion leader Fethullah Gulen in a ceremony at the Undergraduate Study Centre on Thursday. Addressing the ceremony, PU Vice Chancellor Prof. Mujahid Kamran said that the last honorary degree awarded by the PU was to the Turkish president in 1986. He said that the Pakistani nation felt a kinship with the Turkish, who were leaders of the Muslim world intellectually and politically. He said that Gulen had made a deep and significant contribution to education.

Gülen is a leader that possesses extraordinary competences such as foresight and persuasion. He has led a community successfully and transformed it to a global social movement.

Gülen is classified as an Islamic scholar and spiritual guide, he is also an example of a leader possessing such extraordinary competences such as intuition and foresight. Gülen has led his community successfully in the every field (at an intellectual, spiritual, and social level), and has transformed a great traditional social movement in Turkey to a worldwide community in touch with modernity. Some scholars describe him as a charismatic figure. Rather than having charisma he describes himself as a servant. He has been seen as a community leader of profound appreciation of the Islamic sciences and contemporary- modern thought and a passionate activist. Successful leaders represent and express what they desire to reach through their actions, and then translate their actions into words. In Gülen’s own words, “for us action precedes thought”, and this is a distinguishing characteristic of Gülen’s leadership style.
