"Today especially, in our time there is a greater confusion in the Muslim world...Western civilization has forced us to change. And very rapid also, everything is changing. Change is considered to be a reality and therefore you must change, if you do not change that means you are dead, you become petrified...You disappear from history. And we are trying to follow that. But is it necessary to follow that?"
