Chechen President appreciates Imran Khan’s stance on Islamophobia


ISLAMABAD: The President of Russia’s Muslim-majority Chechnya region Ramzan Kadyrov has expressed gratitude to Prime Minister Imran Kha for his stance on Islamophobia in the United Nations and other world forums and said the Muslims in Russia see him with “great respect and honour.”

“Personally I was profoundly and eagerly looking forward to meeting you to express my gratitude for the stance you adopt for our religion (Islam) in United Nations and at world forums,” the Head of the Chechen Republic said in a letter to the Prime Minister.

Imran Khan had met Ramzan last month in Moscow and appreciated the rebuilding of Grozny and the rapid progress of the Chechen Republic under his leadership.

The Chechen President also expressed gratitude for meeting him during his recent visit to Russia and said three million Muslims in his country see him with “great respect and honour.”

“You [PM Imran] would be aware that Muslims in Russia esteemed you with great respect and honour.” President Kadyrov said, “We are ready to make every service for you in Russia. We also pray to Allah Almighty to consider us among His dutiful and obedient humans. Whatsoever service is required for the cause, defence and struggle of Allah’s Deen and its spread.”
