Is Wahhabism a Security Challenge for Kosova, or Not?
There have been different debates on the role of the wahhabi movement in Kosovo. Some argue that the independence of Kosova and its recognition, by the international community, will be a fertile land for the wahhabis, and their threat will effect whole of Europe. When we look at the history of religion in Kosova, and among the ethnic and religious groups living there, we can see that this claim is just another securitizing act by some interest groups who oppose the independence of Kosova. This paper explains the religious traditions of the Kosovars, and how they differ from wahhabist traditions. By doing this, the paper argues that wahhabism is not so influential in Kosova, where it is declining day by day, and this presents no threat to the communities living in Kosova, or Europe.
