Armed people threaten blood feud on Tumso’s relatives in Chechnya

Blogger Tumso Abdurakhmanov and his brother claimed that the Chechen authorities had passed a blood feud warning to their relatives in the village of Starye Atagi. Armed men appeared in the village after the dispute between Tumso and the speaker of the Chechen parliament in a voice chat.

Mokhmad Abdurakhmanov, a Tumso’s brother, said that a top-ranking Chechen official “sent dozens of people to the village of Starye Atagi, a my mother’s ancestral village where her brothers live, and threatened them: ‘If you do not stop your man within two days, then we will return, we will declare a blood feud on you, and we will wipe up you’.”

Mokhmad Abdurakhmanov emphasizes that those threats contradict the rules of blood feud.

“In the Chechen traditions, there has never been such a practice for the mother’s side to be held responsible for the actions of a person,” Mokhmad Abdurakhmanov explained in the video “Iudov threatens our maternal relatives”, posted on the “AbdurakhmanOFF” YouTube channel on September 26.

Tumso Abdurakhmanov noted that about 30 armed people appeared in the village of Starye Atagi.

He associates the threats against his relatives with the recent dispute between him and Magomed Daudov. “I think the repressions against my relatives were a logical continuation of our conversation with Daudov in the voice chat. He openly announced that he would make my relatives answer for my words,” stated Tumso Abdurakhmanov as quoted today by the “Kavkaz.Realii”.
