"This is a horrible crime," he told RIA Novosti. "Islam categorically bans doing harm to innocent people, it only calls for rebuffing aggression. A suicide bomber has no right to call him/herself a martyr. He/she committed an evil act and will be punished by the Almighty," the Mufti is convinced.
He underscored that "a terrorist has no nationality or religion." "Terrorism does a tremendous harm to people of all religions, to their peaceful co-existence. This is an attempt to cause hatred and to cast doubt on the piousness of our intentions," said the leader of the Russian Moslems in connection with the terrorist act in Moscow.
