Chairman of Russia Muftis Council and the Spiritual administration of Muslims (DUM) of the Russian Federation Ravil Gainutdin were deprived of their dignity and removed from the post of Imam-mukhtasiba Moscow region and the Imam-Khatib of the Cathedral mosque in Sergiev Posad Arslan Sadrieva after his performances in the media, reported in a press-service of the DUM of the Russian Federation.

«For the attempt on the true values of Islam and distorting them, willfully illiterate interpretation of fiqh (Islamic law), the distortion of the teachings of religious and legal schools-the madhhabs, created by the great imams based on Quran and Sunnah, in an attempt to create division among Muslims, for the distribution of the apparent heresy”, — stated in the decree of the head of the DUM of the Russian Federation.

Earlier in the pages of one of the Internet-editions there was an interview with Sadrieva where he, as noted in DUMAS, «the self-willed and extremely illiterate interpreterpath the teachings of Islam, voiced their own opinions regarding the fundamental pillars of Muslim religious practice, while the obvious way contradicted the Quran and Sunnah».
