The Council of Muftis, Russia’s highest Muslim council, issued a protest against a ban on some Islamic publications that are being considered by authorities as extremist. The Council “has taken a decision to request that the relevant institutions of the Russian Federation carry out a repeat analysis of the books,” adding that they were seriously concerned over the subjective compilation. Starting in 2007, authorities have complied a regularly updated list of publications that deemed banning, many of which are linked to Islam. The Council of Muftis represents Russia’s 20 Million Muslims.
