St. Petersburg jihad murderer is Muslim from Kyrgyzstan, Akbarzhon Jalilov
The Telegraph says: “No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack and the suspect’s motives remain unclear.”
The Telegraph, like other establishment media outlets, is a wretched propaganda sheet determined to mislead the public into thinking that Islamic jihad terror is not as much of a problem as it actually is.

“Who is St Petersburg bombing suspect Akbarzhon Jalilov?,”
by James Rothwell, Telegraph, April 4, 2017:
Russia’s investigative committee has named the St Petersburg metro bomb attacker as Akbarzhon Jalilov, a 22-year-old man from the Central Asian country of Kyrgyzstan.
The confirmation came after Kyrgyzstan’s security services, who said they are “maintaining contact with the Russian secret service for further investigation,” named Jalilov as a suspect this morning.
Earlier Russian investigators refused to confirm the report, saying that although they have established the identity of the attacker, whose remains they found at the scene of the blast, it would be “premature” to name the suspect publicly.
Denial begins: Daily Mail highlights claim that St. Petersburg jihad murderer “didn’t say his prayers”— more on this below the fold
Who is he?
Akbarzhon Jalilov was born on April 1, 1995. Kyrgyzstan’s security services say he is from the city of Osh.
Unconfirmed reports in local media say he moved to St Petersburg with his parents in 2011, and remained in the city after they later returned to Osh.
Very little is known about Jalilov’s background before he carried out the attack.
Unconfirmed reports in Russian media said he worked for some years as a sushi chef in a St Petersburg restaurant and was a martial arts fan, citing a profile on Vkontakte, a Russian social network.
CCTV images of the suspect, provided by police to Russian television channels and redistributed by Reuters, show a young man in a red parka and carrying a rucksack walking through a metro station.
Where is he from?
Kyrgyzstan, a mountainous former Soviet republic sandwiched between Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, and China, is a Muslim-majority country closely allied with Russia.
Jalilov is an Uzbek, not Kyrgyz name. Osh, the city the family comes from, was the scene of bloody clashes between Kyrgyz and Uzbek communities in 2010. Some have speculated the family moved to escape the violence, and might provide a clue to his path to radicalization.
Why did he do it?
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack and the suspect’s motives remain unclear.
Russia’s Interfax news agency cited law enforcement sources saying Jalilov was linked to known Islamist extremists – but it offered no details….
“Didn’t say his prayers”– continued:
The Daily Mail here again shows why it is the worst paper in the Western world. Yes, the Guardian and the Independent and the Telegraph, etc., are just propaganda sheets for the hard Left, but the Daily Mail is even worse because it reports accurately on jihad terror, but then vilifies and demonizes those who stand against that same jihad terror, and kowtows to the jihadis.
And so now it’s no surprise that they highlight in their headline that the St. Petersburg jihadi “didn’t say his prayers”: at the Daily Mail, as with virtually all the publications in the shattered, staggering, dying, dhimmi UK, job one after every jihad terror attack is to exonerate Islam of all responsibility for the crimes done in its name and in accord with its teachings. If Akbarzhon Jalilov really didn’t say his prayers, that doesn’t mean what the Daily Mail wants you to think it means, that the St. Petersburg bombing wasn’t really a jihad attack. A Muslim who never goes to mosque, does not pray, and is not otherwise observant may be carrying around a rather large load of guilt precisely because he isn’t religious. He may know that an easy way to offset all his evil deeds is to perform an act of jihad, as the Qur’an guarantees Paradise to those who “kill and are killed” for Allah (9:111). So in this case, Akbarzhon Jalilov may indeed have been unreligious, and conceived of an easy way to get back into Allah’s good graces: kill a crowd of Infidels in St. Petersburg.
“Islamist suicide bomber’s dismembered body is found: Former sushi chef from Kyrgyzstan ‘who didn’t say his prayers’ is named as terrorist who murdered 14 as Kremlin calls St Petersburg train massacre a ‘challenge to Putin,’” by Will Stewart, Julian Robinson, Gareth Davies and Martin Robinson, MailOnline, April 4, 2017:
A former sushi chef from Kyrgyzstan has been named as the suicide bomber who murdered 14 and injured 50 in the St Petersburg train massacre.
Russian citizen Akbarzhon Jalilov, 22, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, has been named by security services as the suspected bomber who also planted a second device hidden in a fire extinguisher that failed to explode.
Kremlin officials said parts of the attacker’s body had been found at the scene a day after a train was blown up between Sennaya Ploshchad and Sadovaya metro stations in Russia’s second city.
CCTV images of the suspect have been released, showing him in a red Parka jacket, carrying a rucksack on his back through the Metro while further images shows him walking along the street with both his fists clenched – potentially because he was clutching the trigger for his bomb. Police believe he has close links to radical Islamists.
A former friend, Ali Matkarimov, today said Jalilov – who was named by Kyrgyzstan officials – was once a sushi maker and was ‘not even saying his prayers’ when the pair worked together in the city in 2013.
The Kremlin today described the attack as a ‘challenge’ to Vladimir Putin adding that it was ‘noteworthy’ that it happened while the Russian President was in the city.
As hundreds gathered to mourn the dead this morning, the city’s transport bosses reopened four stations which had been shut down following an anonymous call warning of another attack.
Jalilov’s home country of Kyrgyzstan, which borders Kazakhstan and China in central Asia, is predominately Muslim and has seen up to 500 citizens travel to Syria to join ISIS.
Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were also born there. It was the last of the Soviet republics to declare independence in 1991.
The death toll from the atrocity was raised to 14 this morning. Nobody has claimed responsibility for the explosion, but previous attacks on Russia have been blamed on ISIS and Chechens.
Despite initially issuing search warrants for two suspected terrorists, authorities believe the suspected bomber was behind the attack and also have intelligence to suggest he planted a second explosive device – disguised as a fire extinguisher – which was found and defused at a nearby station.
Kyrgyzstan, where Jalilov is originally from, is a predominantly Muslim Central Asian nation of six million, is Russia’s close political ally and hosts a Russian military airbase….
At least 7,000 nationals from former Soviet countries, including 2,900 Russians, have been recruited by Islamists in the terror group’s so-called caliphate, according to Russia’s FSB intelligence service – and there are fears some are now returning with the intention of carrying out attacks.
It is not the first time Kyrgyzstan nationals have been linked to terror attacks. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who was born in Kyrgyzstan, was convicted of planting bombs at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, together with his brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
While no-one has yet come forward to claim responsibility for Monday’s atrocity, the country’s security services have previously said they had foiled ‘terrorist attacks’ on Moscow’s public transport system….
