Moscow, December 30, Interfax – Talgat Tajuddin, the head of the Central Muslim Board of Russia, has cautioned against attacks on Muslims in retaliation for recent terrorist attacks.

“Peaceful, good Muslims should not become the target of so-called ‘acts of retaliation. People who follow traditional Islam have no relation to extremists,” Tadzhuddin said during a meeting with Volgograd Mufti Ilyas Biktimirov in the press service of the Central Muslim Board on Monday.

Tajuddin reiterated that Muslims “are trying to prevent the spread of extremism, radicalism and terrorism.”

He called on the law enforcement agencies, authorities and residents of Volgograd to prevent acts of religious and ethnic conflict in the region.

Police posts have been created near every Volgograd mosque due to the recent events in the city, the Central Muslim Board said.

Since you are here…

…we do have a small request. More and more people visit Orthodoxy and the World website. However, resources for editorial are scarce. In comparison to some mass media, we do not make paid subscription. It is our deepest belief that preaching Christ for money is wrong.

Having said that, Pravmir provides daily articles from an autonomous news service, weekly wall newspaper for churches, lectorium, photos, videos, hosting and servers. Editors and translators work together towards one goal: to make our four websites possible -,, and Therefore our request for help is understandable.

For example, 5 euros a month is it a lot or little? A cup of coffee? It is not that much for a family budget, but it is a significant amount for Pravmir.

If everyone reading Pravmir could donate 5 euros a month, they would contribute greatly to our ability to spread the word of Christ, Orthodoxy, life's purpose, family and society.
