    Turkmenistan, Islam in

    Eighty-nine percent of Turkmenistan's population is Sunni Muslim; 9 percent is Orthodox Christian. Prior to independence ( October 1991 ), the Soviets defined and controlled institutionalized Islam; popular (unofficial) Islam consequently flourished, centered around the tombs of Sufi saints and Muslim holy places. After the Soviet Union's collapse, Hajji Nasrullah ibn Ibadullah registered the Kaziate Administration of Turkmenistani Muslims with the Turkmen Ministry of Justice; it received full juridical powers, and law enforcement officials maintain a working relationship with religious representatives. Religious organizations are precluded from registering as political parties, and the Turkmen legal system is based on civil law.
