Why fear islam ? Islam will unify & liberate Russia

Reader comment on item: Predicting a Majority-Muslim Russia

Submitted by Yunus Zamakda (United Kingdom), Jan 27, 2009 at 06:12

If Islam does eventually govern Russia then it is paramount that that every ethnic groups needs are met justly. Also Islamic history promoted equality of opportunity to non muslims wherever Islam ruled.

Russia has been engulfed with an anti Islamic agenda by both the media & its powerbase fearing that change may adversely impact on their personal fortunes e.g. oligarchs, politicians etc. Moreover this anti Islamophobic propoganda has created a climate of hostility in Russia's metropolitan cities,giving rise to right wing nationalist movements mrdering & lynching innocent people.

An increase in Russia's muslim population should not be a concern at all, in fact it should be embraced as it could enhance russia's economy in years to come with a vibrant youthful workforce but it will also enable Russia to embrace the concept of multiculturalism.
