Or is Salafi a movement?
Can one be a shafi'i and be a salafi?
Please provide proof with your answer.

    You ask for proofs: What kind of proofs do you like to have? For this we must assume that salafi's themselves are in consensus of the meaning of the term we maybe than could give a proof ... most salafi's are more or less following the hanbali school of fiqh, but the major difference between them and the other four schools is not a fiqh (jursiprudence) rather than a 'aqidah (interpretation of the belief) matter. – Medi1Saif Aug 11 '16 at 6:12
