Commentators define "Stockholm syndrome" in Dagestani blogger Rasul Asad
Social network users have noted that instead of complaining about the many-hours-long detention by law enforcers of Novosasitli villagers, the blogger, Rasul Asad, has emphasized law enforcers' politeness and the fact that villagers came to police voluntarily.
The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that on September 6, the Imam from the village of Novosasitli and several dozens of local residents, dissatisfied with the decision to hand the local madrasah over to the Muftiate, came to the police station and were kept there without food and water for about nine hours. Among the detainees, there were Rasul Asad, the author of the popular Telegram channel "Ask Rasul", and many elderly people.
After the incident, Rasul Asad confirmed on the Facebook the police information that there were no detentions. This blogger's post has triggered commentators' criticism.
"They talked politely, but illegally detained elderly people for eight hours," the social network user Magomedrasul Akhmednabiyev pointed to the contradiction in Asad's words.
"You've just developed the 'Stockholm syndrome' (an unconscious victim's link with the aggressor, – note of the "Caucasian Knot"). You should calm down and then write a complaint to the prosecutor's office," Ruslan Yakhyaev gave his advise to Asad.
The user, Mukhumad Nuraev, also believes that law enforcers' actions against Novosasitli villagers are a cause for complaints.
