Supreme Mufti of Russia Talgat Tadzhutddin has proposed that three-stage system of Muslim education is established in Russia, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported on Saturday.
"Currently, Russia is dependant on the foreign Islamic universities," Tadzhutddin said at a meeting with Grigory Rapota, the special representative of the Russian president in the Volga Federal District.
Russian applicants enter Islamic universities without elementary level of Muslim education, Tadzhutddin said. "It is like enter technical university having no knowledge in mathematics," he added.
Tadzhutddin proposed that a three-stage system including madrasahs, Islamic universities and Islamic academies is introduced in Russia.
