Islamic party

Islamic party

An Islamic party is a party that works for promoting Islam while an Islamic political party is a political party that promotes Islam as a political movement by offering nominees for election in a democracy - of which there are several in the Islamic world. They are important to distinguish from militant Islamic groups which may not necessarily run for election. Islamic parties may, on occasion, resort to militant strategies (such as in the case of the Muslim Brotherhood).
