Yet on October 24 in Kazan was averted terrorist attack: Two militants were going to kill people in prazdnichka day of the Muslim Eid al-Adha. And one of the attackers was a specific agent killing of the deputy mufti of Tatarstan Waliullah Yakupova (19 July 2012). Also militants suspected in the assassination of the mufti of Tatarstan.
Both bandits were followers of Islam constructive. During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, these people were going to destroy those Muslims who consider themselves "moderate." The terrorists called themselves the "Mujahideen of Tatarstan."
On the body of the 1st of the criminals was found suicide belt. The apartment, which serves their evil offenders found several guns, bombs and components. During the assault had been wounded three security officials, one of them died.
The battle between the combined forces of the Interior Ministry, the FSB and a group of armed men came to the street chemists. The bandits were taken in the siege of the apartment on the ground floor of a brick five-story building. At the time of the assault one of the criminals detonated an improvised explosive device.
Saving from destruction, and civilians, and fellow band members, one of the officers of the FSB covered him bomb.
Both slain militants identified. Their names — Kashapov and Vale. Last on the federal and international wanted list.
The media immediately began talking about an armed terrorist underground that is growing and thriving Kazan and generally in Volga. In general, there were those who denied it.
Director of broadcast services to Mongolian and Bashkir languages "Radio" Liberty "Rome Gilfanov believes in Kazan armed Islamist underground there. In his view,
The Emperor himself Gilfanov spent another parallel:
The question, of course, is what they feared. Do not just bomb?
As for the clashes on the streets of Chemists, the Gilfanov does not share the official point of view and, in addition, is contradictory to the Interior Ministry.
The existence of an armed Islamist underground in Tatarstan director Broadcasting Service rejects:
However, the two terrorists from outside Khimki called themselves the "Mujahideen of Tatarstan." In addition, on the same day, 24 October, at the same Kazan police arrested another group that is moved through the city by car. Under the black flags of Islamic "Al-Qaeda" and inscriptions in Arabic: "There is no God except Allah."
Another early October Eugene Great wrote:
Not undertake to criticize the court's decision, but the episodes unfold one after another in the Volga region, suggest to some reflection.
Last week in Kazan conducted a search in the apartment of the Imam of the mosque "Al-Ikhlas" 39-year-old Rustam Safin which previously been convicted, and now again is suspected of involvement in an extremist organization "Hizb-ut-Tahrir al-Islami." After a search of the companions of Imam structurally configured stated that arbitrators need … to tear the head.
They recorded a video clip with the dangers of the expressions added there Safina and sent an entry in the Web.
How should the file itself Safin announced ongoing investigation against him act as "a criminal case against Islam and Allah himself." According to him, take a "law-enforcement agencies attempt to suppress Islam." Was in the frame of a lawyer Taufik Vasiliev read the ruling Vakhitovsky chairman of the district court of Kazan Fanis
Mussina of the search, and then urged the audience to "rip the heads of all those who wrote these words." Later, the sovereign lawyer three times referred to the arbitrator, "shit."
And on Oct. 26 about three 10-ka cars driven by Kazan unfurled black flags with "Hizb-ut-Tahrir al-Islami." Police intervened after an action has received reports from people.
According to the Deputy Governor's press-service of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tatarstan Maxim Kostromina, in order to test this disk imaging was delayed about 20 cars. Law enforcement officials asked drivers to questions about the purpose of the rally and used symbols. He received the answer: flags is shahada, "There is no God except Allah and Muhammad — his prophet" and the auto action is an expression of joy at the Eid al-Adha. All the same, flags were transferred to the Religious Research.
The trick is that the law enforcement source said the agency «REGNUM»: the car is more parishioners from the mosque "Al-Ikhlas", which earlier in the rallies did not hide his own goal — the establishment of a global caliphate. October 26 "halifatchiki" tried to attract the attention of urban residents to the planned action in Kazan Victory Park (which was not obtained the consent of the city administration).
An unnamed source news agency expressed bewilderment as to why even after a special operation to eliminate Islamist militants on October 24, police costs half measures.
The deputy chief of the center to combat extremism MIA Mordovia Oleg Kopylov said not long ago in Saransk:
It turns out the situation is paradoxical, says commentator Dmitry Remizov: if the Central Asian states local law enforcement behold the danger of religious radicals and directly compete with them,
There are more "real" world view on the matter. The control center of the Volga regional and ethno-religious Russian research institute of strategic researches Rais Suleimanov believes that the feeding of extremists Volga plays into the hands of certain forces in the Russian corridors of power. According to the views of Suleimanova Tatarstan authorities have embarked on the support of national separatists and Islamic fundamentalists "methodology" of the 1990s. The expert notes that in the process of settlement of Tatarstan enhanced rural migrants from Central Asia and the Caucasus. According to the famous Islamic scholar, in the center of his field expeditions were found villages in which migrants live professing non-traditional forms of constructive RF Islam. As an example Sulejmanov led village Shumkova Rybnoslobodskii region of Tatarstan, where currently lives seven large families Tajiks (some — polygamous).
Of the 320 inhabitants of the village about weaving — Tajiks. Migrants need to build a mosque in the Russian countryside, and against it are local Tatars, explicitly states that Islam is in these Tajiks — non-standard. Spiritually favorite Tajik settlers is the imam, formerly 15 years has lived in North Waziristan (Pakistan). The expert said that after the U.S. military operation against the Taliban in Afghanistan in 2001, many of the Tajik Wahhabis settled in Pakistan, and from there began to move to Russia.
You can, of course, turn a blind eye to the fact that not only the existence of, and the establishment of radical Islamists in the Volga region, or to look at it through his fingers, but it is naive not to attach a value to it. Speaking about "underground"Should see that Islamism in Tatarstan if only he had not armed, obviously prefers open forms, meeting in Kazan mosque" Al-Ikhlas "and preaching Rustam Safin, insulting judges, video messages, tuples of cars under the Islamic flag, settling Russian villages, promotion of "non-traditional" forms of Islam through the sample in these villages to build the mosque, to which objection to the local Muslim Tatars — all this leads to some reflections …
