Apples and oranges. It's a bit like asking if C is an embedded systems
language or if JavaScript is a 3D graphics language. Well, no, but you can
use them for that if you want. That doesn't render them any less Turing
complete.

In the same way, Python is a programming language that can be used for
scripting, as well as lots of other things, from web programming to number
crunching.
