Social network users criticize Chechen blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov for video with Akhmat Kadyrov

The publication of the video in which Akhmat Kadyrov, Ramzan's father, is disrespectful of Christians and non-believers, has provoked criticism of Tumso Abdurakhmanov by some social network users. They have urged the blogger to "leave the dead alone."

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on May 13, Tumso Abdurakhmanov posted on the YouTube a video dated 1996, in which Ramzan's father called Christians and non-believers "dogs of Allah." This statement contradicts the provisions of Islam, Orientalists have pointed out.

Some YouTube commentators have criticized the blogger for posting the video, but most expressed gratitude for it.
