MUSLIMS AND SOVIET SOCIALISM
I also think that we should make research on the roots of the soviet movement. Stalin, when he was in Baku, was deeply influenced by the muslim population there and the muslim working class. The communist movement recruited its members directly from the suppressed muslim working class in Azerbaijan. The communist party of Azerbaijan was in the beginning as Hummet a execlusively muslim party, but Stalin founded it!
And we should also not forget the different muslim groups who called for jihad against Tzarism and the white army and for socialism. I think the role of soviet muslims is completly underestimated.
