Houses of Crimean Muslims are repeatedly searched for banned literature.
On September 5, houses of local Mejlis members Mustafa Salman and Dilyaver Hayreddinov were searched in Nizhnegorsk rayon of Crimea.
“The searches were conducted by police officers, it is unclear, why in Nizhnegorsk rayon exactly. They are searching for banned literature”- activist of Crimean Tatar national movement Zair Smedlyaev said.
“Mask-show has searched house of head of Nizhnegorsk office of Mejlis Mustafa Salman. Neighbors say police searched for arms, Mustafa Salman and his two sons were deployed to local police department”- journalist Shevket Namatullaev wrote in Facebook.
This is not the first case of such searches in Crimea. Earlier, Russian Federal Security Service officers has searched Crimean madrassas (religious schools) and houses of Muslims for banned literature.
As Russia’s Federal List of Extremist Materials comes into effect in the region, a number of Islamic religious books, that under Ukrainian law was deemed legal, have now been outlawed.
