Kadyrov's propaganda influences radicalization of Chechen youth in Europe
In Europe, Chechen young people are susceptible to Ramzan Kadyrov's propaganda, who defamed the authors of caricatures on Prophet Muhammad, said Magomed, a Chechen refugee, who was acquainted with the family of the young man, accused of murdering the teacher in Paris. There are many in Europe, who feel sympathy to Kadyrov, and Anzorov could fall under their influence, said the head of the French Association of Chechens.
Relatives of Abdulak Anzorov, who is accused of assassinating the teacher, had not noticed any radicalization of his views, said a refugee who knew his father and uncle. According to his story, the incident has shocked Anzorov's relatives.
Djambulat Suleimanov, head of the French Association of Chechens "Bart Marshaut" (Accord and Freedom), has noted that the murder took place amid the October 2 speech of the President of France against radicalism.
The head of Chechnya has condemned the crime, but treated the disrespectful attitude towards Islam as a provocation.
Zelimkhan, a native of Ingushetia, living in France, said that he was afraid to publicly express his condemnation of the committed crime.
