Moscow: Moscow police have detained six suspected members of the banned Islamic Revival Party for recruiting volunteers, a police spokesman said Monday.
"The activity of the Islamic Revival Party, recognized as a terrorist group by Russia`s supreme court and banned in Russia, has been intercepted," he said in a statement.
Police searched the suspects` premises, and found nine grenades, weapons, ammunition, extremist literature and guides to recruiting people and spreading radical Islam.
The Islamic Revival Party is a registered political party, and main opposition force in Tajikistan. The party stresses Tajikistan`s Muslim identity and calls for the creation of an Islamic republic, and is popular among Central Asian migrant workers in Russia.
