Wahhabists networks throughout world (Part 1)


By spending huge amounts of money and buying Sunni clerics, Wahhabists began to build seminaries, mosques and Islamic centers in poor Muslim countries particularly Pakistan, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and India that have large populations and low incomes, and promoted Wahhabism through strong organizations and interconnected networks, inviting the Muslims of the sub-continent, who are mostly Hanafi and susceptible to accepting Wahhabist ideas, to embrace the sect. 

Given the poverty in subcontinent countriesnumerous work forces, including workers, technicians, engineers and doctors, from these countries work in Saudi Arabia and their commute to and from their countries is another factor in the promotion of Wahhabism.

Wahhabists have built seminaries and mosques in the most deprived areas of Pakistan, such as Baluchistan province which is one of the most deprived areas in the world, and attract people by spending large amounts of money. They have also infiltrated and have bases in Iran’s Baluchistan province.

The extensive and active network of Wahhabism has spread throughout the world and has infiltrated the Indian subcontinent, Africa, Far East, Central Asia, former soviet republics, Europe and the US, and some of independence-seeking movements in these countries, such as Chechen employ the agents of these networks or their branches.

Terrorist groups such as Abu Sayyaf in Philippines, Sipah-e-Sahaba Pakistan (SSP) and the activities of Bin Ladan in Sudan, Afghanistan, Europe and the US originated from Wahhabists networks. After differences and disputes emerged between them, particularly during the second Persian Gulf conflict, Salafis and Bin Ladan separated from Wahhabists and various branches were formed.
