Rallies can sow dissension, too In his interview to channel Russia-24, Chairman of Russia Muftis Council mufti sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin expressed his regret over the fact that the authorities of certain regions do not let Muslims build mosques.

"Every once in a while, we meet imams complaining about the heads of their regions who refuse to allocate sites or don't give their permission for mosque construction," said mufti.

Muslim spiritual leader explained the necessity of construction of new mosques by the need to improve atmosphere within the society and prevent the spread of radicalism among Muslims.

"New mosques are managed and led by imams who are officially appointed by the leaderships of spiritual administrations. They are known both by the state and among the congregation. They will preach our traditional values, love and brotherhood and orthodox teachings of Islam," stressed the head of Russia Muftis Council.

Ravil Gaynutdin also mentioned that Russia Muftis Council does not support the idea of a Muslim rally against Islamophobia and Caucasophobia in Moscow.

"Religious organizations never take part in rallies, meetings or demonstrations. I've heard from religious figures, leaders of local religious organizations, regional spiritual administrations that they don't support destabilization of our society. We don't think that this contraposition—"first there was Russian march, now let's organize a Muslim or Caucasian march"—we don't think it will work. It's not the answer of a Muslim. Muslim must abide by the law and serve as an example for others," said Chairman of Russia Muftis Council mufti sheikh Ravil Gaynutdin.
