The Ingush people are an ethnic group of predominantly Sunni Muslims that live in the North Caucasus, mostly inhabiting the Russian republic of Ingushetia, neighboring Chechnya. Ingush people speak the Ingush language.
The history of the Ingush is closely related to that of the Chechens.
An interesting article was published in Prague Watchdog that is an on-line service that collects and disseminates information on the northern Caucasus region. The service focuses on human rights, and local political situation in the northern Caucasus region. Though many living in the region are Muslims, the article focuses on their preferences about following a lifestyle that is Islamic versus leading a secular life.
