RFE/RL has an interesting article about the spread of Salafism in Tajikistan.

Interesting article. It should be interesting to see how the Tajik government reacts to this and whether they pull an 'Uzbekistan' and just suppress everything and unwillingly create terrorist groups. It is sad to see the nice form of Central Asian Islam becoming tainted by extremists. I think it's funny to hear people claim the US is behind it. I think Saudi Arabia and Pakistan would be the first countries that would come to my mind.
