GROZNY, January 19. /TASS/. Islam is a religion of peace and Muslims in Russia will never allow others to use them for destabilizing the situation in the country, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov said at a rally in Grozny on Monday.
The demonstration, Love for Prophet Muhammad, in defense of Islamic values, has drawn thousands and came ahead of a collective prayer at 12:30 Moscow Time (09:30 GMT).
