MOSCOW, December 27 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Council of Muftis believes that the killers of Mufti in North Ossetia Ibragim Dudarov did not like his position in the protection of traditional Islam.
“The murder was linked with his religious activities,” deputy chairman of the Russian Council of Muftis Damir Gizatullin said. “This clergyman was not running a business, lived in consent with the authorities, law and people. But probably some people did not like his position in the protection of the Islamic traditional values. Some movements have nothing to offer in the theology to us, Sunni Muslims, and they are taking to arms getting infuriated,” Mufti Damir Gizatullin told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
He noted that killed Ibragim Dudarov was a member of the constellation of the younger generation of the Islamic clergy in Russia. “They are working actively with people, explaining the norms of traditional Islam. The result was already achieved and North Ossetia became a calm republic in religious terms,” the mufti noted.
Gizatullin noted that the North Ossetian Muftiyat is incorporated in the structures and the Russian Council of Muftis and the Coordination Centre of Muslims in the North Caucasus. Ibragim Dudarov has left the post of the deputy mufti of North Ossetia, but he has always been a respected person and “did not conflict with anyone,” he said.
Dudarov was killed on December 26. He was gunned down at point blank from submachine guns at about 22:00 Moscow time on the driveway to the settlement Chmi, where Dudarov lived. The criminal case was opened for murder and illegal circulation of weapons.
