It is a fact that the sectarian elements are effective in the Muslim community, which has the largest population among the minorities in England. It is known that he Salafi movement, which has gained a global reputation in the last quarter century, has had an impact on Muslims living in England. The Salafi movement, which wants to create a standard Muslim structure in terms of belief and worship among its main goals, sees young Muslims born in England as its target audience and makes an effort to include them in its ranks. On the other hand, Sufi tendencies of Indo-subcontinent origin such as Barelvi and Deobandi, who want to preserve the traditional understanding of religion against them, also oppose the Salafi movement and criticize their understanding and practices that can be called radical. In this article, the activities of the Salafi movement at the point of representing Islam in England and the counter-attacks of the Sufi-oriented movements that want to preserve the traditional understanding of religion will be examined.
