Central Muslim board condemns Al Fatah head for keeping weapons and drugs
The Central Spiritual Muslim Board of Russia has "sharply and categorically denounced" the actions of Jamaliddin Makhmutov, head of the St. Petersburg-based Al Fatah organization, who is suspected of keeping drugs, ammunition and extremist literature in a prayer room at a local market.
"This deplorable fact that banned substances and materials were kept in a religious building blatantly contradicts all norms of the Islamic faith and represents the most serious crime against our society," the board's presidium said in a statement on Monday obtained by Interfax-Religion.
