Muslims of Russia: Chechnya – Land of Contrasts
Islam is one of the four major global religions. Today the Muslims of the world begin celebrating the holy month of Ramadan.
I found very interesting and revealing this RT documentary about the quintessential land of contrasts, Chechnya, one of the many small autonomous republics located in Caucasus. The small Caucasus ethnic autonomies within the Russian Federation are predominantly Muslim. But Chechnya stands out even among these, having in the past experienced a devastating war, complete with foreign fundamentalist Islamist invasion. Today, it stands out for a different reason – the fast and amazing rebirth it has experienced due to the vision and organizational talent of its leader Ramzan Kadyrov, and the financial support of Vladimir Putin and Moscow.
But to me, the biggest contrast of all is the staggering difference between how Russia is able to work with and integrate its many diverse religious and cultural minorities vs. the multi-culti mess in the EU and other countries/continents.
At the very least, this documentary is educational. Check it out:
