Proposed merge with Early scholars of Islam[edit]

Both articles contain useful information based on reliable sources, but there is definite overlap. Andrew327 18:31, 23 June 2013 (UTC)

Delete "Salafi and the Safavid"[edit]

The section entitled "Salafi and the Safavid" contains some of the worst writing I have ever seen on Wikipedia. I would say it was argumentative, rather than neutral, if I could understand the point it was trying to make. In any event, it is essentially unsourced (the two footnotes were clearly afterthoughts; of them begins a page cite then trails off). The title doesn't really describe what it is about (perhaps nothing could).

In any event, it does not really belong in this article because it doesn't describe anything of a historical nature. I realize that the modern history part of this article needs much beefing up, but this piece doesn't add anything.

Does anyone want to defend this section before I delete it?AnthroMimus (talk) 13:13, 11 March 2015 (UTC)
