Dagestani Muftiate quits Coordination Centre of Muslims of Northern Caucasus

The Muftis of the republics of Northern Caucasus have moved claims to Akhmad Abdulaev, the Chairman of the Spiritual Administration of Muslims (SAM) of Dagestan, due to the fact that the newspaper of the Dagestani Muftiate "As-Salam" is spread in their republics. In response, the SAM of Dagestan has quitted the Coordination Centre of Muslims of Northern Caucasus today.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that the newspaper "As-Salam" is published by the media holding of the Dagestani SAM and is one of the mouthpieces of the official information policy of the Muftiate.

The application on quitting the Coordination Centre is posted on the website of the Muftiate.

The newspaper has been used for many years by the Muftiate for anti-extremist propaganda; it publishes materials on issues of the traditional Islam.

Let us remind you that in May 2012 in Dagestan, representatives of various trends of Islam agreed to resolve differences through dialogue. The parties to the peace process are Salafis, represented by the “Ahlyu Sunnah” Association of Scientists, and Sufis, represented by the SAM of Dagestan. After the murder of Said of Chirkey in August 2012, the leadership of the media holding of the Dagestani SAM announced the end of the dialogue of Sufis with Salafis.
