    Inquiry regarding Salafi/Wahhabism in India

    Hari Om

    Namaste

    In the states, after two decades of learned folks attempting to sound notice of Wahhabism/Salafism, to deaf ears, seems that at high level at least, people are taking notice. As a side note, which do welcome correction, with our collective mindset here, worry that pendulum is swinging to quickly.

    When think of how dynamically and by which methodology this ideology took root in Chechnya, wondering about India. From Hanafi to Hanbali and with it, if make distinction, either/or, Wahhabism/Salafism, not such a monumental switch in beliefs, or focus perhaps is better. Wondering if this is spreading in India and if so, what impact so far?

    Thanks so much for anyone of knowledge on this.

    Please take good care.

    Om Namah Shivaya

    Namaste,

    The previous post from me as usual has much to be desired by way of clarity. Apologize for my lack of articulating well my question. If not reality, would like to think nature of posting is atypical from here.

    Try to do better with stating:

    For those in India or anyone with thought, does it appear that specific ideology of Salafism is spreading in India? Spreading is perhaps not best either. Is its presence felt more? Influence?

    By all means, to those of SD/HDF, be grateful to clarify if question has ambiguity within.

    Regardless, thanks so much.

    Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

    Namaste,

    Perhaps some people will answer your question. In the meantime, there are many towns/communities being set up like the one in the link below, right here in the US...

    Hari Om,

    Namaste BelieverJi,

    Thanks for response. Appreciate it. As an aside, prior to posting this and think two other akin to it, wished to be mindful of HDF rules and purposes and not wish to either raise the Abrahamic section again nor be xenophobic in appearance nor fact. So, whether think on larger/macro, a particular larger path is a threat, wish to stick to specific ideology, and to learn about impact in India and also to make people aware (sure many are), that a number of groups that have been publicized so much in last years, even with some differences within, share this very specific ideology in common.

    To what you share, without speaking of the religion as a whole, undoubtedly, those Jivas who adhere to the specific ideology are in the States, and are functioning for their purposes. To India, am ignorant to this truth and would like to know more.


    Thanks!


    Om Namah Shivaya
