When I first drafted this book it bore a sub-title. This referred to the ‘seven tombs of Sari Saltik’. The sub-title was subsequently dropped, although it may still be found in forthcoming works listed on the Internet. However, the name and the memory of it still lingers on within several chapters in this book, Chapter 6, in particular. Sari Saltik will be mentioned throughout that chapter. However, I thought it was fitting, also, to introduce him before my opening chapter. Much in his personality, in which ‘Popular Islam’ is so graphically portrayed in the flesh, spurred me on to say a little more about him in this ‘Introduction’.
