Ramzan Kadyrov: Why Can't We Build Mosques in Moscow or Other Regions of Russia, Why Only Churches? There are 27 to 28 million of Muslims in Russia, says head of Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov. In his interview to Vesti 24 channel, the politician has denied Islamization of Chechnya and was quoted as saying that “there is nothing in the Constitution of Russia that contradicts Islam”.

“That is why Allah says we must defend this country and obey the orders of its leadership. We can build mosques and madrasahs here [in Chechen Republic], we can pray and wear our national costumes. This country is most acceptable for us,” he said of the Chechens' decision to live in Russia.

Speaking of the presence of mosques in Russian public space and the construction of new ones, he said ”Mosque is a temple. Why can't we build mosques in Moscow or other regions of Russia, why only churches?”

Muslims comprise 90% of the population of Chechnya, but churches are also built in the republic. “We build churches in Naur, Sunzha and Gudermes Districts, in Grozny. We organize all kinds of events for Republic's Christians, we create all the conditions for them. Muslims clear Christian cemeteries and look after them. Why don't Christians respond us with the same?” said Ramzan Kadyrov.
