GROZNY, July 6. /TASS/. Those who say that Muslim criminals were involved in the terrorist attacks in Saudi Arabia are mistaken, acting head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov wrote on his Instagram page on Wednesday, referring to the words of head of the Ulama Council of the North Caucasian Federal District Khozhahmed-Haji Kadyrov said before a collective prayer in the Tsentaroy village mosque on the occasion of the Eid al-Fitr holiday.
"He (Imam) spoke bitterly about the tragic events in Medina and Baghdad. Khozhahmed-Hajji said that those who allege that Muslims are involved in these terrorist acts are vastly mistaken", he wrote.
According to Kadyrov, in the view of the head of the Ulama Council of the North Caucasian Federal District, Chechnya was in a more difficult situation when the first Chechen President Akhmat Kadyrov "assumed full responsibility for the restoration of peace and the future of the people."
According to him, it was noted during the morning sermon that Akhmat Kadyrov’s team accomplished the objective, but "today we have to be vigilant, nip in the bud the slightest attempts to cause a split in society whatever the reason."
"We have enough will and power to curb any enemies of Islam and the Chechen people", the acting head of Chechnya wrote.
He added that thousands of people gathered in the Tsentaroy village mosque, most of whom are young people, for the holiday prayer. Millions of Muslims around the world are celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday, marking the end of the fasting month of Ramadan. It is celebrated from one to three days in different regions.
On July 3-4, Saudi Arabia was struck by a series of terrorist attacks. Suicide bombers attacked the US consulate in Jeddah, a Shia mosque in Qatif in Saudi Arabia’s east and the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina. According to preliminary information, four security officers were killed and five more injured in the attacks. No one yet claimed responsibility but the Islamic State (IS) terrorist organization (banned in Russia) is thought to be behind the attacks.
Kadyrov, 39, who has led the republic since March 2007, said earlier that he considered that his mission as the Chechen head was accomplished. His term expired in early April. Ten days before the term’s expiration, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree to appoint Kadyrov as the acting head of Chechnya. The president expressed hope that Kadyrov would take part in the September polls.
