MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Head of the Russian Council of Muftis Ravil Gainutdin said migrants’ respectful attitude towards traditions of an area where they arrive and work would make it possible to get rid of stereotypes of hostility of Muslims.
“Any society has its customs and traditions and a code of rules,” the mufti said at an international Muslim forum on Monday.
“So we urge ethnic Muslims to behave worthy in any place and in any society and observe law. The main thing is to show respect and be a moral example,” he said.
“Russians and Muslims from Tatar suburbs have been living together for centuries.” “It’s natural for a Moslem: our religion learns us to help neighbours and maintain good relationship,” the mufti said.
However, he said the Muslims society voiced concern about “the position of certain mass media or even municipal officials that are ready to see a terrorist in every woman wearing a headscarf”.
“State structures should do everything possible to legalize the stay and labor of migrants in Russia without any damage to Russian citizens and indigenous people who return to historical homeland,” he said.
