Revival attempts are common in the history of Islam as the manner by which Muslims have faced western challenges be they in the form of the Crusades, 19th century colonialism or modern day economic imperialism. In recent times, the Iranian Islamic revolution is in some ways similar to the salafiya movement whose basic goal is a return to the original rationally understood message of Islam. Islamic fundamentalism, however, needs not be understood as a retardation-a going back to the middle ages, but as a legitimate response to economic crises of modern times.
