Historically, Revolutions have taken place when a majority disagrees with the ruling party's policies. Be they economic, social, political, or they just can't stand their leader any longer. For the most part, the revolutionaries are "secular" meaning that no major religion backs these revolutionaries. The Communist revolution saw forced secularism in russia, the french revolution tried to bring about a secular france, and even the founding fathers of america thought that to best protect the individual citizen's religious identity, the government must remain secular. What I'm looking for is a historical case of the opposite. Where a religious group stages a coup to overthrow a secular government and implement a theocracy based on their own relgion. I know this has happened in the middle east, but all I really know about the Iranian revolution I've learned from reading "Persopolis". I'm also incredibly fuzzy on the rise of the Taliban. I need to know a few things before starting my theocratic takeover of my fictional religion.
