ORENBURG, January 27. /TASS/. Experts from the Anti-Terrorism Center of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) and religious leaders meet on Wednesday in the city of Orenburg in Russia’s Urals to discuss fight against Islamic State, a terrorist group outlawed in Russia.
"This is a very pressing problem for the whole Eurasian region. We must boost effort of Muslim religious and civic organizations aimed against extremism," the organizer of the seminar, Venaliy Amelin, told Tass on Wednesday.
He said the venue, Orenburg, was not a random choice, as the city straddles the border between Europe and Asia. Taking part in the seminar will be top Muslim leaders of Russia, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, imams of trans-border regions, specialists from the Institute of Oriental Studies at the Russian Academy of Sciences as well as from the Anti-Terrorism Centre of the CIS, a loose alliance of former Soviet republics.
They will look into joint measures to counter destructive ideology of Islamic State that takes active measures to recruit nationals of Russia and Central Asian states.
Spiritual leaders and experts will share their experience in organizing ‘hot line’ for relatives of those recruited by IS, in issuing of anti-extremist literature, fight against radicalism among migrants and in prisons, as well as will voice fresh data of opinion polls about Muslims’ attitude to atrocities of Islamic State.
Special attention will be paid to new methods of work with Muslim youth to organize their leisure, form the living position making them invulnerable to Islamic State recruiters.
