pro-Sharia does not necessarily means islamist

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. Islamism (article)

Submitted by Gato Branco (Lithuania), May 23, 2013 at 02:36

I do not agree with Daniel Pipes about equating being pro-Sharia with being islamist. One good example - Ramzan Kadyrov of Chechnya who is on the one hand very traditionalist and pro-Sharia, on the other hand, he suppresses Islamist militants ruthlessly and with iron hand.

Daniel Pipes replies:

I did not say that pro-Shari'a = Islamist. Islamism means applying the Shari'a in a complete and extreme form.
