Ashraff in Parliament 1989–1992

  • Andreas Johansson
Chapter

Abstract

This chapter focuses on the former leader M.H.M. Ashraff’s speeches in parliament and how Muslim politics are presented in these speeches. As described above, the political conditions during the period of 1989–1992 were to a large extent dominated by the civil war. This chapter will therefore be divided into parts that correspond to different phases in the civil war and to when Islamic references are notable.
