Many people today have heard about the Wahhabi movement in Islam, but few have any actual information about the history and ideology of this puritanical movement.
Many have a sense that these teachings, emanating from Saudi Arabia, are responsible for much of the extremist teachings around the world, but have a hard time figuring out why and how the Wahhabis are engaged in displacing indigenous and local Islamic practices and interpretations worldwide.
In order to answer these questions, I recently offered a lecture, along with a slide show of relevant images. In it, I examine the ways in which the Wahhabi ideology, linked with the Saudi royal linkage, is responsible for demolishing, destroying, and bulldozing over 90% of Islamic monuments in Mecca and Medina.
The powerpoint slideshow and the talk on history of Wahhabi movement can be accessed and downloaded here. Feel free to share.
