MOSCOW, January 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia’s Council of Muftis does not support the idea of holding a rally of Muslims “against Islamophobia, Caucasophobia and xenophobia” in Moscow’s central Manezhnaya Square on January 26, head of the Russian Council of Muftis Ravil Gainutdin said on Thursday.
“A Muslim should abide by the laws and be an example for others in his morality and good attitudes to other peoples, but not in setting himself against others,” he said in an interview with the Russia-24 television channel.
“Religious organizations never take part in any rallies, marches or mass demonstrations,” he said, adding that no one had invited the Russian Council of Muftis to take part in that rally.
“We are against any steps that might destabilize our society. We think it necessary to look for ways of settling problems not setting people against each other by the nationality criterion. We must find ways to compromise and settle problems peacefully,” he stressed.
