The Russia's Central Spiritual Governance for Muslims (TSDUM) declared that these are enemies of Russia who killed Valiulla Yakupov.
Evil deed has been committed and it can’t be justified. The crime in which essence there is an absolute refusal to hear the word of Allah, strictly warned in Koran that the one who killed not by right even one person is considered as the one who killed all mankind, the Russia’s TSDUM says. Hazrat Valiulla Yakupov representing the elite of Russian ummah was killed cynically before the beginning of Muslems fast. The plain truth is that persons guilty of that are irreconcilable enemies of not only Moslems, but of all our multinational and multiconfessional Fatherland.
The Russia's Central Spiritual Governance for Muslims expressed their sympathy for the injured man as a result of act of terrorism to the chairman of Spiritual Governance of Muslims of Republic Tatarstan mufti Ildus Faizov and wished him quick recovery.
We appeal for all Russians not to succumb to attempts of situation destabilization in our country and to stay calm, Muslim Spiritual Authority says.
Many religious establishments, public official and organizations (including Council on State-Inter-confessional Relations at the President RB, Spiritual Governance for Muslims of Bashkortostan) expressed condolences to the family of Valiulla Yakupov and wished quick recovery to Ildus Fayzov.
