Imams in Bashkir regions will be engaged in religious literacy campaign among local population

author: Timur Rakhmatullin

The Clerical Muslim Dept RB ordered all imams (the representatives of the mufti in the regions) to hold regular enlightener lessons for local population with the purpose to raise the educational level of people in the regions.

The Clerical Muslim Dept RB reports the lessons have to be aimed at the acquaintance with history and culture of the traditional Islam, elucidation of the legislation concerning freedom of worship and religious communities and at prevention of spreading of extremist tendencies among Muslim believers. All imams are recommended to attract secular specialists for that. The lessons should be conducted at least once per month.
