The authorities of Crimea have given Muslims three months to voluntarily surrender the literature on Islam, authorized under Ukraine but outlawed by the Russian Federation.
"We call on Muslims in possession of this material to deliver it to the religious authorities over the next three months," said the president of the Crimea, Sergey Aksyonov, as reported by Interfax. Until the end of December the police will not confiscate the "forbidden literature", but on the first of January, "everything must be in compliance with Russian norms".
He guaranteed that the list of banned books will be published in the press and there will be an awareness raising campaign among the local population.
Since September, several members of the Muslim community in different areas of Crimea reported police raids in their homes in the hunt for "forbidden literature."
