Anonymous said:I recently watched The Ottoman Empire on BBC. Its a docu series. one fascinating thing I learned from the series is that the Ottomans are responsible for starting and legitimizing the infighting between different sects in Islam. Prior to this is was blasphemous and unheard of for a Muslim to declare war against another Muslim. Did you know this ?
I wouldn’t say that the Ottomans were the first to legitimize infighting between Muslims. I’m not sure what BBC was referring to exactly.
