Well, Chechen terrorists come from the dominant local sufism. If you remember the name of Beslan, then the sufi-inspired atrocities and sadism successfully compete with those of more popular Moslem sects and haereses of the sunnis or shi'as. In short, a small minority can follow the true Islam as faithfully as the overwhelming majority does.
