Muslim leaders use the term Islamic Socialism when seeking more spirituality in traditional Socialism. Many Islamic scholars consider Socialism to be inherently atheist and denounce many government programs inspired by Socialism as a violation of Islamic Law or teachings. Islamic socialists argue that the principles of socialism, specifically that of land redistribution, are congruent with the laws of the Quran. Though the roots of Islamic socialism lie in pre-soviet Russia, the first large scale implementation of the doctrine occurred in Pakistan under the rule of the PPP and Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto. Today, the PPP, under the guidance of Asif Ali Zardari, still advocates a system based on Islamic socialism. Another strong proponent of Islamic socialism is Moammar Gadhafi, who declared Libya an Islamic socialist state in 1969 and outlined his principles in the Green Book.
