On September 10, the Chechen TV Channel posted on its YouTube channel a six-minute story from the Shali administration hall, entitled "How uncontrolled spending time on the Internet can lead to trouble?" The story shows how in the presence of many people sitting at the tables, the young people were reproached by Zamid Chalaev, the commander of the Akhmat Kadyrov police regiment, and Lema Khashuev, the Qadi of the Shali District.
Lema Khashuev, the Qadi of the Shali District "wonders how, while listening to absurd lectures posted by unauthorized preachers on the Internet, people can slander the mosque which stores hairs from the beard and the head of the Prophet Muhammad." The Qadi called on the young people to "sincerely repent," reports the story prepared by the Chechen TV.
"Adam and Magomed Ismailov admitted that they were extremely wrong. The guys pledged from now on not to listen to Internet preachers and not to mislead young people," authors of the TV story report.
