Two Muslim clerics and a prominent Islamic scholar have been killed in the restive North Caucasus republic of Daghestan.Â Â The clerics’ pro-Kremlin, anti-Wahhabi stance has stirred speculation that they may have been targeted by hard-line Islamists looking to break Moscow’s grip on Russia’s second-largest religion.
‘Russian court forbids spreading islamic writings’Â Â (Vlad Tepes-Translated from German byÂ Michael Laudahn:)
A court in the southÂ russian city of OrenburgÂ Â has established a list of prohibited litterature comprisingÂ 65 islamic books, whose sale henceforth is illegal on russian territory. The verdict caused great outrage with the russian moslem community.
I like the spelling of literature Â with two ‘t’s:
Among the islamic litterature classified as dangerous are the well-known al-Bukhari and al-Muslim hadith collections, like also the books on the life of the prophet Mohammed (sirah) and the 40 hadiths of the imam An-Nawawi. Â (Vlad Tepes)
In that case, why not ban the koran already?
Moderate Muslim Clerics Â Who Pledged Loyalty to Â Russia Quickly Eliminated
