Mufti Albir-Hazrat Krganov met with the Special Envoy of Indonesia

Moscow, September 5, 2019

The Secretary of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation Valery Fadeev and the head of the Religious Assembly of Muslims of Russia, Deputy Chairman of the Commission of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation on harmonization of interethnic relations Albir-Hazrat Krganov met with a delegation of the Republic of Indonesia led by the Special Envoy of the President of the Republic of Indonesia on inter-religious and inter-civilization dialogue and cooperation Mr. Shyafik Mughni.

The parties discussed issues and prospects for further cooperation and the development of inter-religious dialogue between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Indonesia, joint activities to counter pseudo-religious extremism and terrorism.

The event was also attended by the head of the political department, adviser-envoy Fawzi Bustami, the second secretary of the political department of the Embassy of Indonesia in the Russian Federation Judika Madura, and the representatives of the international department of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation, the Religious Assembly of Muslims of Russia and the media.  

Foreign guests were interested both in the activities of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation and the built model of interethnic and interreligious cooperation in Russia. They drew attention to the fact that today the religious organizations of the two countries represent major centers of social and public activity. The role of religious leaders in ensuring the peaceful coexistence of the diverse population of Indonesia and Russia is very important. The parties agreed that it is necessary to resume active interfaith and cross-media dialogue between religious figures of the two states.

“We believe that all people are born equal, regardless of their civilizational or religious identity, and have equal rights. We are working to strengthen cooperation between all faiths and civilizations in order to avoid conflicts and to build more just world”, - Shyafik Mughni emphasized.

In his turn Albir Krganov spoke in detail about the structure of Islamic organizations in Russia. He noted that Russia is actively cooperating with the Islamic world. As part of this interaction, a strategic vision group “Russia - the Islamic World” was created back in 2006.

“The uniqueness of our country also lies in the fact that we have created an inter-religious working group to assist the people of Syria. We do not divide anyone into religions and peoples and provide humanitarian assistance to all. This is an amazing picture when Christians distribute humanitarian aid in a mosque, and when we Muslims distribute it in churches. This is how do we work, - said Albir Krganov.

He recalled that in September 2018 there was a meeting of members of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation with a delegation from Indonesia. “We have the protocol of that meeting with 10 different areas of cooperation. Now it is time fulfill them. We are open to dialogue and ready to discuss your proposals”, - he concluded.
