Sufism in the Balkans

Another post on Islam in Europe. This time the article’s about Sufi forms of Islam in the Balkans. A form of Islam at odds with its more extremist versions, it is frequently dismissed by the latter as ‘communist Islam’. In an earlier post we covered tensions between Sufi and Wahibi Muslims in Georgia.

The article is accompanied by several YouTube clips that feature different elements of Sufi practice in the Balkans.
