My understanding, and I know you'll correct me if I'm wrong, is that
the Sunni Caliph would be a secular leader and this has been the case for
well over 1000 years.
The Shia still mourn the death of the Caliph Ali and require the return
of a Madhi for the restoration of the empire.
I have no idea what form of government the Sufi would like, but I'm sure
you'll tell me...
