The book “Prayer to God” is not extremist any more (Judgment of the court)

The book “Prayer to God” is not extremist any more (Judgment of the court)

The book “Prayer to God: its meaning and place in Islam” which was previously recognized as being extremist has been justified by the superior authority of Juzhno-Sakhalinsk court. Interfax reported that Sakhalin region court cancelled the decision of the city court on Tuesday.

It is worth reminding that the recognition of the book “Prayer to God” as being extremist provoked indignation among the Muslims in Russia. The main reason for that was that some ayats from Quran were recognized extremist along with the book.

The head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov, the Russia muftis’ Council and some others appealed against the Juzhno-Sakhalinsk city court decision.

President Vladimir Putin proposed to the State Duma to consider the introduction of the law which would forbid to recognize texts of the sacred scriptures extremist.
