Fethullahci Teror Orgutu, meaning “Fethullahist terror organization” (FETO): A name the Turkish government used for the Gulen movement.


The Gulen movement (Turkish: Gulen hareketi), referred to as Hizmet (Service) or Cemaat(Community) by its participants and as FETO (Fethullahist Terrorist Organisation or more commonly Fethullah Terrorist Organisation) (Turkish: Fethullahci Teror Orgutu), by the Government of Turkey after 2015, is a transnational socially conscious Islamic movement with political overtones and aspirations, inspired by the writings and preachings of Fethullah Gulen, a Turkish Islamic preacher who has lived in the Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania, United States since 1999.

The movement is designated as a terrorist organization by Turkey, Pakistan, and the GCC. Owing to the outlawed status of the Gulen movement in Turkey, some observers refer to the movement’s volunteers who are Turkish Muslims as effectively a sub-sect of Sunni Islam; these volunteers generally hold their religious tenets as generically Turkish Sunni Islam. The movement also includes participants from other nationalities and religious affiliations.
