UFA, November 19 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev condemned and rejected the bloodshed and strife that resulted after the so-called “Arab spring”.
Talgat Tadzhuddin, head of the Central Muslim Spiritual Board of Russia, said at meeting with Medvedev on Saturday, November 19, that the latest events in North Africa and the Middle East “reverberates with anguish” in the hearts of Russian Muslims.
“Attempts have been made to play this card here too, but the clergy of all traditional confessions understand the importance of preserving peace and stability in our country,” he said.
“As far as our approach, I mean the approach of our state, is concerned, we can understand people’s striving for democracy. But the regimes swept away during these events were very old and rotten regimes, and the people were dissatisfied with them. This is clear and understandable,” Medvedev said.
The question is what thee nations have got in the end – development or a civil war. “If the result is a civil war and the killing of other citizens, including Muslims, the killing of one Muslim by other and the killing of members of other religions, this is an absolutely unacceptable result,” the president said.
“No matter how nicely this can be described, this cannot be either accepted or assessed,” he added.
Medvedev expressed hope that “reconciliation, civil peace and religious and inter-confessional calm will return” in these countries.
However, he believes that this will take a long time.
The president stressed the need “to appreciate the peace we have in our country”.
