Mufti of Crimea Emirali Ablaev informs Russian law enforcement officers on the Muslims professing, in his view, the nontraditional ideas of Islam.
Coordinator of civilian blockade of Crimea, ex-Vice Premier Lenur Islyamov has made public disclosure of the appropriate application of the Mufti.
In particular, in his letter addressed to the FSB, police and the Prosecutor of Crimea, Ablaev argues that Hizb ut-Tahrir, habashits and other radial sects “have intensified their extremist activity” on the peninsula, and lists the names and addresses of the Crimean Muslims.
“Here it is the real face of the Crimean “Muftiate”! Delations of the brothers-in-faith have become common practice in the occupied Crimea,” Islyamov commented on the Mufti’s letter.
As reported by the News from Crimea website, Russian security forces searched houses of the Crimean Tatar people in the townships of Stroganovka and Kamenka, located in the suburb of Simferopol, on October 12. The searches resulted in detention of five people.
