Исламская правовая мысль против экстремизма и терроризма

Islamic radicalism and extremism threaten the national security of many countries including Russia. The ideological aspect of this phenomenon is of special importance. Traditional Islamic political and legal thought may have some provisions used to justify extremism.

Decisions of the leading centers of Islamic legal thought reject the ideology of Muslim radicals. The Islamic legal rhetoric must be used to combat religious extremism and international terrorism.
