These people harm Islam and true Muslims, Ravil Gainutdin believes.

The idea of an Islamic state discriminated by misguided persons, Chairman of the Russian Council of Muftis, Chairman of the Spiritual management of Muslims of the European part of Russia Ravil Gainutdin at the forum of Muslim scientists of Eurasian, BNews.kz correspondent reports.

“I often hear from the leaders of the Muslim communities of Europe, that in secular states of Europe, where Muslims are in the minority, Islam develops more meaningful, free and in harmony, compared to many territories of the Islamic world. The idea of the state established on the principles of Islam is considerably discriminated by misguided people, who call themselves Muslims and who harm Islam and true Muslims of all continent of the world,” Ravil Gaintudin said.

He also commented opinions of some experts on the fact that the key issue of the Islamic world is Muslims themselves.

“We dream to return the Islam’s Golden Century back in reality, despite of our lag in terms of technologies from the states of the Christian world in West and from developed countries of Asia. If the global internal gross product reaches 75 trillion dollars, the share of all Muslim countries comprises mere 4 trillion dollars,” the speaker said.

Ravil Gainutdin believes that Muslims should analyze the issue of why the Islamic world forgot the successes and achievements reached in the middle ages.

“It is Muslims who were an example for the entire world, including for the west Cristian world. What happened, they think of us, Muslims and the Islamic world, as undeveloped and uncivilized, they believe that we do not achieve successes in high technologies, in the intellectual development. We are searching in the statements of the middle age, that we need to develop the Islamic thought in the form as certain religious movements that impose their own ideologies for the whole Islamic world understand it, thus they frighten the entire world, namely the West world. This year’s forum is necessary for all us, it sets the issues that we need to understand,” the Chairman of the Russian Council of Muftis.

“It is interesting why the Middle East do not develop the Islamic thought, but it accumulates destructive forces. We should shoe off, that we have our own traditions, scientists, and that we have not been developed only in our circumstance, but also in the multinational, multi-religious one. We are rich than we think of ourselves, because we are familiar with the European culture and our culture. That is why, we are more enlightened about the global issues that the world faces,” he said.
