The director of the Islamic College by Miriam Sultanova Ildar Malakhov offers to read a cycle of lectures, devoted to moderate “middle” Islam in Ufa.
Some days ago he has returned fr om Kuwait, wh ere he was meeting the leading politicians, scientists and theologists in the international center “AL-VASATYA” during one week. In the course of the visit the agreement concerning the lectures on moderate Islam was reached in this country.
As Ildar Malakhov explained, first the pedagogues from Bashkortostan will pass training courses in Kuwait. Coming back they’ll read lectures and hold seminars on moderate Islam at Islamic education institutions and later possibly at secular education institutions. Another variant is also possible: pedagogues from Kuwait will arrive in Ufa to read lectures here.
Ildar Malakhov is a member of the Russian scientific-enlightener center “AL-VASATYA”, opened in Moscow in January 2010 upon the initiative of the first deputy Minister for affairs of Islam in Kuwait Adel Al-Falyakh. The chairman of the Council for state and inter-confessional relations under the President RB Vyacheslaw Pyatkov is a member of this center’s board of trustees.
