Sheikh Said Ismagilov urge Russian Muslims to self-determine given the situation
"The Muslim peoples of Russia are suffering from Russification, losing their national languages, culture, and religion. Therefore, now is the best time to revive national dignity and national consciousness," he said.
On the website of the public movement, Free Idel-Ural posted a video address of Sheikh said Muslims of Russia, in which he calls for an uprising.
Recently Said Ismagilov has condemned on his Facebook page the actions of Russia's Muslim leaders, who remain silent and do not respond in any way to the actions of the Kadyrovites and the Russian aggressor in Ukraine.
"We will not restore spiritual ties with Russia's Muslim leaders. My conscience won't let me reach out to them. He will see how the main Muftis of Russia approved the Kremlin's aggression against Ukraine, and without any reservations blessed the bombing of the whole of Ukraine, which included us-the Muslims of Ukraine."
He also posted on his Facebook page a video of a respected Muslim figure Sheikh Muhammad al-Hassan Didu, an Islamic figure from Mauritania who condemned Muslims who took the side of Russia in the war against Ukraine but considers the struggle of Muslims on the side of Ukraine to be correct and fair.
