Russia to lauch Islamic TV channel

Russia is all set to get its first Islamic satellite TV channel by March.



Moscow: Russia is all set to get its
first Islamic satellite television channel by March, a top
Muslim cleric has said.

"At present the technological process is in its final
stages and latest by March we can watch the first Islamic TV
channel," Chairman of Russia`s Mufti Council Ravil Ghainuttdin
was quoted as saying by the online `Gazeta` daily.

"We think that the (Muslim) youth should be educated
and brought up in the spirit of tolerance towards the
believers of other faiths, love for their neighbours and
patriotism," Ghainuttdin said, expressing hope that the new
channel will lower the degree of "Islamophobic moods" in the
Russian society.

He underscored that not only Muslims but the people of
other faiths will be involved in the project.

"We live in a multi-ethnic nation. That`s why not only
Muslims, but also my other compatriots will be able to find
jobs in the new channel," the cleric said.
