Following the Russian Revolution in 1917, Chechnya’s first attempt at declaring its independence was met with Russian occupation (Shah).

    The establishment of the Soviet Union in 1922 helped to reduce the role of Islam in Chechnya by forcing adaptations to Soviet centralization. During World War II, a large number of Chechens were deported, further fragmenting the Chechen population, culture, and religion and reducing Islam’s role in the rise of the 1994 conflict as religion was a less central focus in Chechen lives due to their effective refugee status following deportation.
