Islamism (Urdu: اسلام پرستی; Arabic: إسلاموية), also known as Political Islam, is a set of ideologies holding that ""Islam should guide social and political as well as personal life."" Islamism is a controversial concept not just because it posits a political role for Islam but also because its most extreme advocates believe their Islamic views are superior to all others', and that the contrary idea that Islam is, or can be, apolitical is an error. Islamists can have varying interpretations on various Quranic suras and ayahs. Islamist views emphasize the implementation of Sharia (Islamic law); of pan-Islamic political unity; and of the selective removal of non-Muslim, particularly Western military, economic, political, social, or cultural influences in the Muslim world that they believe to be incompatible with Islam.Some observers (Graham Fuller) suggest Islamism's tenets are less strict, and can be defined as a form of identity politics or ""support for [Muslim] identity, authenticity, broader regionalism, revivalism, [and] revitalization of the community."" Following the Arab Spring, Olivier Roy described political Islam as ""increasingly interdependent"" with political democracy.Islamists generally oppose the use of the term, claiming that their political beliefs and goals are simply an expression of Islamic religious belief. Similarly, some experts (Bernard Lewis) favor the term ""activist Islam"", or ""political Islam"" (Trevor Stanley), and some (Robin Wright) have equated the term ""militant Islam"" with Islamism.Central and prominent figures of modern Islamism include Hasan al-Banna, Sayyid Qutb, Abul Ala Maududi,and Ruhollah Khomeini.
