When Chechens converted to Islam about 200-300 years ago, they accepted the Sufism from Naqshbandiyya which came from Central Asia. It fit perfectly to their social structure since Chechen society didn't know any social hierarchies before the Russians conquered them. Today they are practicing a more radical and conservative Islam (Thanks to influence from Saudi Arabia). To me, this form of Islam is contradictory to Chechen culture, which is Caucasian. My opinion.

Why people can't look at the positive side of things, and appreciate differences. Imagine how boring life would be if all people wore the same thing, eat the same thing and lived the same way. I really respect their culture and I think its beautiful even if I don't agree with everything.
