What is Sect?

A sect is in a non-Indian context generally a small religious or political group. Sects have many beliefs and practices in common with the religion or party that they have broken off from, but are differentiated by a number of doctrinal differences. In contrast, a denomination is a large, well-established religious group; however, in Islam, the large groups such as Wahabi, Shi'a and Sunni are referred to as "sects", not "denominations".
