Prison Caliphate Radical Islam is massively distributed in the penitentiary system of Russia

Prison Caliphate Radical Islam is massively distributed in the penitentiary system of RussiaThe criminal environment, the SIZO, prisons and colonies have become a breeding ground for the spread of unconventional for Russia currents of foreign Islam of a radical nature. The criminal world with its set of values ​​and ideological attitudes gives many opportunities to religious fundamentalists to recruit new followers to their ranks who are behind bars in everyday articles of the Criminal Code.

The preacher Kasym Nurullin, a well-known preacher in the region, began working with prisoners among Muslim religious leaders in Russia, who did a lot in Tatarstan to nurture the spiritual prisoners. The peak of his activity fell on 1990-ies, and he actively contributed to the fact that almost in every colony or pre-trial detention center of the republic a prayer room appeared or a mosque was built. But the sincere service of Kasym Khazrat, who saw religion as an opportunity for moral improvement and rectification of those who violated the law, acquired other forms after the Department of Relations with the security forces (with the special contingent in the Muslim Religious Board of Tatarstan) ) became the head of Marat Kudakaev. Experts are inclined to believe that it was at this time that even a special theory of “prison jihad” appeared, according to which criminals could become the vanguard in building a caliphate - an Islamic state.

The term “prison jihad” is understood to mean the practice of involving a criminal element in the ranks of Islamic fundamentalists right on the territory of penitentiaries. The approach itself is clear: take in hand weapon and to kill a person “on the way of jihad” - this requires a certain courage and moral and psychological stability. And who, if not criminals, can be capable of such actions. Moreover, the values ​​of the zone built on the system of unwritten thieves' laws can easily be replaced by the values ​​of religious extremism: “live by the rules” - “live according to Sharia”, “Cop state” - “Käfer State” (infidel. - NG ") etc. Respectively, killing a “kafera” is equivalent to “stitching a sucker”. The Russian chanson and mournful songs about the “hard life of thieves” among the Wahhabis that are popular among the prisoners have their counterpart in the form of the work of the Chechen bard Timur Mutsurayev, whose songs are dedicated to the hard life of the “warriors of the jihad” wandering in the mountains. The romanization of the criminal world in the eyes of criminals themselves echoes the aesthetics and ethics of Wahhabism: common ideas about good and evil, right and bad, and life “by notions” is easily replaced by life “according to Sharia” in its fundamentalist understanding.

The most famous example of the fact that a prison can become a place for recruiting into the ranks of Wahhabism is the case around the colony number 2 of the city of Novoulyanovsk. It was there that one of the leaders of the Ulyanovsk Jamaat, Valery Ilmendeyev, created a cell of the “Emirate of the Caucasus”. Having adopted Wahhabi Islam still free, Ilmendeyev, being in the zone, immediately launched an active propaganda among the prisoners. Having become the “amir” of this prison jamaat, he managed to gather from the ranks of criminals a “shura” —the council of the jamaat, with the help of which he began to recruit cellmates into his ranks. The leader of the virtual Islamist state “Emirate of the Caucasus”, Doku Umarov, was given an “Bayat” (oath), while coordination was conducted with those like-minded people who were in the wild. Upon their release, the members of the jamaat were to go to the North Caucasus "to conduct jihad", and the second colony of Novoulyanovsk turned into a recruiting station for the terrorist underground. The situation is aggravated by the fact that prisons become camps for the recruitment of militants not only for the “hot south” of the country, but also for the Volga region itself, where in the summer of 2012, the terrorists who committed the terrorist attack against the mufti of Tatarstan Ildus Faizov and killed one of the major theologians of traditional Islam appeared Valiullu Yakupov. Both the first “amir” of Tatarstan, Rais Mingaleyev, and the second leader of extremists within the Ural-Volga region of the “Viladet Idel – Ural”, Robert Valeyev, had criminal convictions behind them, during which they served in Wahhabism in the zones.

The short terms that religious extremists are sentenced to make the situation just a stalemate. The success of the propaganda of fundamentalism among the prisoners leads to the fact that there are often cases when radical Islam preachers deliberately went to jail in order to recruit new adepts in the zone. In Bashkortostan, cases of repeated imprisonment of Hizb ut-Tahrir ideologues have been recorded, which, falling on short periods under the 282 article (from six months to two years), use this time to conduct dagvat (propaganda) in the criminal environment. We have to admit that one fundamentalist turns in his ideology to 7 – 10 cellmates who are serving sentences on “everyday” articles. Moreover, in the eyes of like-minded people on the outside, those who have served “for the faith” become an authority - this is especially impressive for young people. That is why, more and more often, experts are proposing the need to isolate religious radicals from other prisoners, perhaps by placing them in a single cell to serve their sentences.

The arrival of the leadership of the Kazan Muftiyat Ildus Faizov was marked by a new change in work with the prison special contingent. Airat Zaripov became the head of the department for coordination and interaction with the Federal Penitentiary Service, an agreement was concluded with the agency itself, after which an inventory of all literature in mosques and prayer rooms was first carried out, which was replaced with the appropriate Volga region religious law school. However, this is only the beginning of great work, and if in Tatarstan they have somehow begun to straighten out this area, the situation is more complicated in other regions of the Volga region.

For the time being, the penitentiary system of Russia is permeated with an invisible network of jamaats, forming a kind of prison caliphate: there are camps for recruiting militants, here is fertile ground for propaganda of the call to jihad, here and the possibility of gaining authority for further work in the wild.

    This phenomenon can only be fought with the active counter-propaganda of Wahhabism. Until then, it will not be possible to lament as much as you like about its distribution. And for this it is necessary to combine the efforts of both the Russian Orthodox Church and representatives of traditional Islam.

      "And for this it is necessary to unite the efforts of both the ROC and the representatives of traditional Islam" - only a strong state power not affected by corruption can restore order, and the ROC and Islam must be kicked away into the Middle Ages!

    Archer, are you serious? And sobering up?
    Representatives of the Russian Orthodox Church, who have served the KGB for decades and are now traveling on Mercia, will be able to actively counter-promote Wahhabism, which operates in the zone with real bucks, can protect it (I recall the slogan of the Russian Orthodox Church - do not kill, do not steal, do not wish, turn the other cheek).
    Steel reflect steel. Over the centuries. Strength is power. Do you understand what I mean? In the zone, not the ROC survives, but the strongest. If we can’t fight Wahhabism already behind the barbed wire, guarded by soldiers and dogs, we must accept Islam. If you want your wife and children to survive. Because being strong is responsible for the weak. Whatever it costs us.

      That's the bastard put the cons and for what? You object. Or do you think that the zone is similar to the younger group of the kindergarten? That the prayer room is not visible by cameras? What will someone pray in it? Do you yourself know at least one word of prayer? Do killers and thieves, then, know?
      And if you are more concerned about your own comfort and tranquility at the cost of the life of your family, then such as you and your family, the cultural layer in the excavations 6 meters deep is filled. And the place is still dofiga. And if you are strong, then either fight (which you do not do), or at the cost of your comfort, protect yours.

        We have not yet left the criminal correction system, which was formed in the Gulag, but appeared much earlier. Then they thought that in prison the criminals would re-educate themselves in the collective, but it turned out the other way around - they’re only getting deeper in crime, and now in extremism. Prisons have become a hotbed of organized crime. It is necessary to gradually rebuild places of deprivation of liberty so that prisoners are more isolated from each other. Then there will be an opportunity to think about your life and more likely to improve. Although of course it will require costs, but what is more important?

      It is necessary to completely isolate religious extremists from the rest of the prisoners by either placing them in solitary confinement or creating a separate colony for them, where they will also be separate from each other.
      The popularity of the ideology of Islamic fundamentalism in the criminal environment is explained by the fact that Wahhabism rejects the social hierarchy of the prison community: “for the Wahhabis there are no“ men ”,“ frauers ”,“ thieves ”and even“ roosters ”- they are all“ brothers ”.

        Happy holiday to you and all those involved in the defense of the fatherland! I can agree, and a separate colony, but how many privileges will come of then, because many will specifically seek there, if there is no hierarchy of criminality, then for some it will be a kind of paradise. They write correctly here and I agree with many, involved in the course of Wahhabism - execution and that’s all, do not wait until he has done something. A couple of hundred will be shot and there the flow of beginners will decrease.

        According to the 2002 census, the number of traditionally Muslim peoples in Russia amounted to about 14,5 million people. - About 10% of the country's population. According to the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of the European part of the Russian Federation, adherents of Islam in Russia at that time totaled up to 20 million. “Ethnic Muslims,” according to the 2002 census, make up the majority of the population in seven constituent entities of the Russian Federation: in Ingushetia (98%), in Chechnya (96%), in Dagestan (94%), in Kabardino-Balkaria (70%), in Karachay-Cherkessia (63%), in Bashkortostan (54,5%), in Tatarstan (54%). It should be borne in mind that during the census the question of religion was not asked, and that not all “ethnic Muslims” actually practice Islam. The data of opinion polls and sample studies of the ethnic composition of confessional communities suggest that in Russia from 10 to 15% of “ethnic Muslims” adhere to other religions, primarily Orthodox Christianity. [1] At the same time, many cases of conversion to Islam of Russians who are not “ethnic Muslims” are known. Experts in matters of religion believe that the number of Russian Muslims is from 2 to 20 thousand people. [2] [3] [4]
        The number of Muslims continues to grow due to natural growth, especially among the peoples of the North Caucasus, as well as more Muslims due to migrants, mainly from Central Asia and Azerbaijan. Together with a reduction in the population of Russia, this leads to a significant increase in the share of Muslims in the population of the Russian Federation.

      Alas ... In science, for each unraveled mystery, several new ones appear. Atheism is also a kind of religion - sometimes there is faith in the presence of God, and sometimes faith in the absence of both is unprovable. For a cultured person, regardless of religion, it is unacceptable to impose their ideology on others. And their level of culturelessness not only allows Wahhabis, but even obliges them to impose their ideas on others.
