Evolution, Theory of, and Islam

Debate about the theory of evoluation has pitted traditional religious scholars against modernists. The theory is denounced by most Muslim scholars, even some early modernists such as Afghani , as a refutation of Quranic theories of creation. Today the theory is taught in Turkey, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Indonesia, and several other countries. It has ben removed from the syllabus in Pakistan and is forbidden in Saudi Arabia and Sudan.
