Religious leaders of Russia and Uzbekistan meet in Bishkek A meeting between the religious leaders of Russia and Uzbekistan, Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin and the Supreme Mufti of Uzbekistan Usmankhon Alimov, took place on the sidelines of the 3rd International Conference "Spiritual Silk Road. Great Humanistic Traditions and Current Challenges”.

The chairman of the Russia Muftis Council and the Religious Board of Muslims of the Russian Federation Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin thanked the Mufti of Uzbekistan for his personal participation in the Conference.

“For many centuries Uzbekistan has been known for its madrassas, Islamic higher educational institutions. Many religious figures of Russia, muftis, including me, had an honour to graduate from Uzbek madrassas, or to be students of Uzbek scholars and qari’s (reciters). We are happy to see that the religious educational system of Uzbekistan is developing. On behalf of the Muslims of Russia, I would like to congratulate the Muslim Ummah of Uzbekistan and the whole world on the establishment of the International Islamic Academy. I am sure that the establishment of such a serious educational institution will make it possible to take the training of theologians and Islamic scholars in Eurasia to a new level”, - said mufti sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin.

"It is extremely important to establish bilateral cooperation in the educational sphere. In particular, we need a permanent scientific and academic dialogue between the International Islamic Academy of Uzbekistan and the Bolgar Islamic Academy, the Moscow Islamic Institute and the Russian Islamic Institute," he added.

The Mufti of Uzbekistan Usmankhon Alimov expressed a high opinion of the conference. He noted that only by joint efforts would it be possible to preserve the traditional values, tolerance and Islamic traditions of Eurasia, and spoke about new educational and scientific centers in Tashkent, Samarkand, Bukhara and other cities of Uzbekistan.

During the meeting, the parties agreed to organize a visit of the Uzbek delegation headed by the Mufti of Uzbekistan Usmankhon Alimov, and expressed intention to sign an agreement on cooperation that would include cooperation in the areas of halal industry, Islamic tourism, education, and waqfs.

At the end of the conversation Mufti Sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin said that the Muslims of Russia welcomed the positive changes in the religious sphere taking place in Uzbekistan.
