On the one hand, it manifests itself as a new religious conviction, reaffirming faith in an awe-inspiring God. On the other hand, it appears as a militant ideology, demanding political action now. One day its spokesmen call for a jihad (sacred war) against the West, evoking the deepest historic resentments. Another day, its leaders appeal

    Islam has a short history of only about few centuries in Kazakhstan, although quite controversial one. At different stages of Islam, being Kazakh assumed adhering to Islam in many ways, though historically Kazakh nomads were less religious than their settled Uzbek neighbors (Gunn 2003: 398). Despite the fact that the Soviet politics on religion changed this perception, Central Asians still consider Islam a constituent of their identity (Gunn 2003: 391), though they practice it in a way that might

The modern Turkish state has a strictly secular government, and Islam has been relegated to the personal sphere. Although Turkey has experienced a rise in fundamentalism in the past twenty years, the separation of church and state has remained relatively intact. Even with

    fundamentalism of the anti-fundamentalists? 2 Background This study is, in the first place, not a study about the object of fundamentalism, the fundamentalist, but rather about the subject, the anti-fundamentalist – about the accuser rather than the accused, about the prosecution not the defence. I use the word ‘anti-fundamentalist’ instead of ‘non-fundamentalist’’ to make a distinction between those who publically oppose fundamentalists and those who can not be classed as fundamentalist. The meaning

    most Fundamentalist groups have a charismatic, authoritarian leader. This person is usually male, who may claim to be divinely informed.

He had such control over his followers that when he asked them to take their own lives in a mass suicide, they did so willingly, with mothers even feeding cyanide mixed in Kool-Aid to their children. Another characteristic of Fundamentalist religion

    Armstrong puts it, “Perhaps the most important factor to understand about this widespread religious militancy is its rootedness in a deep fear of annihilation. Every fundamentalist movement I have studied in Judaism, Christianity and Islam is convinced that modern secular society wants to wipe out religion-even in America. Fundamentalists, therefore, believe they are fighting for survival, and when people feel that their backs are to the wall, some can strike out violently.” (Karen Armstrong) To reiterate
