MOSCOW, October 15 (Itar-Tass) - Hackers cracked an official website of the Russian Mufti Council on October 15, a day when Muslims are celebrating a major holiday of Eid al-Adha or the Feast of Sacrifice. Though Russian Muslims regret the incident, they consider it to be unfortunate misunderstanding, which is unlikely to incite inter-ethnic and inter-religious hatred.
“On a day when Muslims around the globe are marking Eid al-Adha in prayers and worships to the Almighty Allah, devoting it to the strengthening of friendly and sib ties and are carrying out a ritual of sacrifice so as to give part of the meat to the needy, a group of intolerant people or simply malicious hooligans have cracked the official website of the Russian Mufti Council,” the Mufti Council said in its statement.
“We believe that the manifestation of intolerance and informational aggression is just an isolated incident and unfortunate misunderstanding because the history of our state and the Russian people is an example of centuries-old friendship and good-neighborly relations among representatives of various ethnic groups and religious traditions,” the document said.
The website administrators hope to liquidate the consequences of the hacker attack as soon as possible.
