The leadership of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC) is extremely concerned about dissemination of radical Moslem currents in the autonomy. Such statement was made by the Head of the ARC Council of Ministries Victor Plakyda during expert discussion “Crimean society: main cleavages, factors of conflicts, ways of consolidation” in Aqmescit (Simferopil) on June 25.

According to him, ideology of radical currents, in particular, salafi groups, is disseminated among the Moslems of Crimea during last time. Also he asserted that ideas of religious and political party Hizb-ut-Tahrir that is prohibited in Europe, Asia and the USA are gaining ground in the autonomy.

ARC Premier noted, in turn, the Majlis of Crimean Tatar people and the Religious Administration of Moslems of Crimea consider activities of the so-called “the Religious Administration of Moslems of Ukraine” headed by Lebanese Ahmad Tamim as the main cause of destabilization of situation among the Moslem communities of Crimea.

“A situation will be become aggravated if registration of statutes of a spiritual centre of these communities will be conducted. In order to settle a conflict between two religious centres, it should be arrange negotiations between two religious centres with participation of all interested parts. As known, an application of a religious centre of Moslems of Crimea has already considered by the State Committee of Ukraine for Nationalities and Religions” – Plakyda stressed.

Victor Plakyda proposed to establish a special division at the ARC Republican Committee for Religions for control over processes in Islamic milieu as well to learn experience of other countries against “Islamic radicalism” in detail with assistance of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine.

To opinion of the Crimean government’s head, it should create an effective mechanism at the state level for control of audio and video production, religious literature that are brought and distributed in Ukraine with aim of containment and dissemination of Hizb-ut-Tahrir Party’s ideology in the region and banning of wrongful activities of its followers.

Reference: Hizb ut-Tahrir (Arabic: حِزْبُ التَحْرِير‎; English: Party of Liberation) is an international pan-Islamist, Sunni, vanguard political party whose goal is to combine all Muslim countries in a unitary Islamic state or caliphate, ruled by Islamic law and with a caliph head of state elected by Muslims.

Taqiuddin al-Nabhani, an Islamic scholar and appeals court judge (Qadi) from Haifa, founded the organization in 1953. Since then Hizb ut-Tahrir has spread to more than 40 countries, and by one estimate has about one million members. Hizb ut-Tahrir is very active in the west, particularly in the United Kingdom, the USA and Europe, and is also active in several Arab and Central Asian countries, despite being banned by most of the local regimes.

According to the BBC, the group “professes non-violence and calls for the return in Muslim majority countries to the caliphate that oversaw the golden age of Islam before European imperialism colonized the Middle East.” (by Wikipedia.org materials)

There are 45 days of vain expectation for the statement the project of the Land Commission, there are 45 nights spending the open-air without tents, regardless the weather conditions, there are 45 days of incessant pressure from the authorities, there are 45 days of the information blockade, some the hospitalized participants of the action, two week hunger-strike – this is the a black list of the largest protest action in Ukraine after the Orange Revolution.

When people will get the land guaranteed by the Constitution of Ukraine? What principles guided by the highest officials of the country with regard to the problems of Crimean Tatar people, for years evading their decision? Why the Decree of the President of Ukraine № 435/2008 from 14.05.2008. “On additional measures to ensure the rights of citizens, living on the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, on the ground” is frankly sabotaged? Why the Prime Minister, beautifully broadcasting of blue screens about her care for the people of Ukraine does not see the citizens of Ukraine, achieving a meeting with this most “careful” Prime Minister one and a half month? Why Yulia Timoshenko has never entered the Cabinet through a main entrance, picketed by the Crimean Tatars since May, 12th till this day.

The participants of the protest action have not received the answer neither one of these questions. The Ministry is deaf to requirements of the picketers. And in the meantime the land question has reached extreme degree of intensity in Crimea. Only in the last two weeks twice flashed conflicts in land area, which was able to calm down with the help of police.

In Roman law the main issue of any process considered the question “Who benefits? ” So who should benefit does not solve in the Cabinet the land problem, thus destabilizing the political situation in Crimea?
