Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin promised on Thursday that a new mosque will be built in Moscow.
"The construction of the mosque has been planned in Moscow. It will be done," Putin said during his annual Q&A session.
The mosque will be built in southeast Moscow, in a district with a large number of ethnic Tatars, the vast majority of whom are Muslims.
Local authorities vowed however to coordinate the construction of the mosque with the non-Muslim residents of the district.
There are currently only four mosques in Moscow - or one for every 500,000 Muslims in the Russian capital.
The President of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov....proposed to build a mosque in Abkhazia.The "former" jihadist Kadyrov has already built the largest mosque in Europe right in Russia with Putin's blessing.
In case a site is allocated we as a sign of a good-neighborly relations between Russia and Abkhazia are ready to build a mosque, R. Kadyrov said. - www.abkhaziagov.org
There are 2 million Muslims in Moscow, I dont think so.
That’s a high estimate but they do have over a million.
So much for Moscow being the ‘third Rome’ and heir to the Byzantine mantle.
Just let the enemy construct a bomb factory in your home base. Brilliant.
“Boy, the Serbs must be really pissed.”
In 60-75 years, you won’t recognize Russia, because it might be a majority Muslim country by then.... Russiastan.
I didn’t know Vlad was a muzzie. Figures, I guess.
Eeh... I’d wait a bit. I’m not sure this will happen the way the designers figured.
They were already in Anatolia.
Putin thinks freaking with fish will protect him from jihad.
Maybe he will have Russia paying tribute to the Tatar Khans again..He has embraced his dhimmitude..
I don’t think it is to work well for his rating.
It is estimated 90% of Russian Internet users supported massive anti-islamist rallies in Moscow
If Russia builds mosques like they built Embassies this could be brilliant. They can just listen in on the planning meetings.
"If a person has good immunity, these viruses remain dormant. And the same thing with society; if society's immune system is strong, if society is mature, then these bacilli of nationalism and radicalism will just sit there quietly, at cell level, and not act up." - Vladimir Putin, Russian "Prime Minister"
A former member of the KGB pledges Muslims will get a new mosque, and some FReepers take it at face value? Methinks Putin is a tad more savvy than that. Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.
When Putin embraces you and/or your cause, you are in danger.
