Iman Valeriya Porokhova suggested the Kazakhstan law-enforcement authorities simply drive salafis out of the country. The member of Russian Natural Sciences Academy, active member of Liberal Arts Academy and the UN International Informatization Academy gave a video-conference lecture to representatives of prosecution authorities, National Security Commission, national guards, Ministry of Defense and Internal Affairs, Tengrinews.kz
“Arab Saudia stands apart from the Islamic world because they preach Salafiyyah religious doctrine that is fully rejected by the whole Islamic world. Indonesia, Malaysia, whole Middle East, Maghreb and African countries do not accept Salafiyyah. And all of a sudden they start to prosper in the south of Kazakhstan. What is this? Russia made a very simple thing: they were driven out. You have to do the same. Unceremoniously,” Porokhova said remembering her visit to south Kazakhstan. People praying in mosques were divided into small groups and there was a salafi in each group, she remembered.
A Muslim cannot allow disturbance in his country, Valeriya Porokhova said. “Such disturbance has to be rooted out in the very beginning. It is very important to understand this. It is important to live without disturbance. This is a dictate of the Quran text, God’s dictate. Any ruler, even not a good one, is much better that a disturbance. You have to tell people about this. You are the authorities who are responsible for this,” she told the personnel of law-enforcement authorities.
Valeriya Porokhova talked about the basics of Islam and how terms ‘extremism’ and ‘terrorism’ are frequently linked with Islam, especially by the media. While the word ‘Islam’ is translated as peace, humbleness and softness.
Expert of Islam noted that Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev has been developing the country for 20 years “in a way that Russian could not even dream of”. “He is a very wise person,” she said about the President.
