    "The Muslim clergy and modern challenges to Russia's security"

    Moscow, April 14, 2010

    We, the participants of the All-Russian Conference "The Muslim clergy and modern challenges to Russia's security", realizing the responsibility before God Al-Mighty, before our Homeland and our compatriots, declare the following:

    The Russian Muslim community is facing today a difficult period of its history. The Muslim clergy is facing a hard and major task such as an active participation in solving problems that hardly can be addressed to the state as a whole. It is challenges to Russia as a state. Muslim religious leaders are at the forefront of this struggle, the struggle for a strong and healthy Russia.

    This puts before them, the whole Muslim community, new objectives.Today the next stage in the development of Islam in the modern history of Russia. The phase of the gathering that mainly focused on restoring mosques and promoting activities of communities locally. Today life itself dictates the Muslim clergy to participate in strengthening the state, to improve society and to form a unified Russian society and its identity.

    This was mentioned by the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev in 2009 in Sochi at the meeting with the heads of republics and religious boards of Muslims of Northern Caucasus. He, in particular, suggested an idea to develop a wide program of measures to overcome radicalism - from the start of the Islamic TV channel to leisure-time activities for youth.

    The radicalization of the part of youth is a process which is now one of the threats to national security and it is fed by underlying factors. This is used by extremists, who hyperbolize the problems of adaptation of Islam in the modern Russian state.

    Therefore the development of theoretical and practical model of Islamic moderation, the formation of Russian Islamic civil identity and integration of Muslim activists in the process of forming Russian civil society and Russian civil nation are urgently needed.

    The reasons for all above mentioned threats and challenges lie not only in socio-economic but also in ideological sphere and demand a set of measures of religious-idealogical and socio-educational nature. As a result of our conference we have developed the following recommendations to the Muslim religious structures of Russia:
