Islam in Azerbaijan

RFE-RL reports on an Islamic revival underway in Azerbaijan. While the article dances around it, this does not seem to have political implications, and I suspect the government remains popular. People are instead turning to Islam out of a need for ideology or a belief system. I wouldn't be surprised if it also carried elements of cultural revival, such as one sees in Georgian and Armenian Christianity.
