Sponsoring Sufism : How Governments Promote "Mystical Islam" in their Domestic and Foreign Policies Hardback
by Fait Muedini
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Religion, Politics, and Policy series
Sponsoring Sufism argues that governments are sponsoring Sufism not only because they see it as an 'apolitical' movement that won't challenge their existing authority, but also that ties to Sufi orders gives them religious credibility, something they seek as they face the rise of Islamist parties.
