Same planet, different world.
Russian press release: ’11 members of Hizb ut-Tahrir extremist organization convicted in Tatarstan.’
The Supreme Court of Tatarstan found 12 activists of the Kazan division of the international terrorist organization Islamic Liberation Party (Hizb ut-Tahrir) guilty of extremism.
“Seven men, including Tajik citizen Dzhurayev and six Russians, have received four to eight years in a penal colony,” court press secretary Natalya Loseva told Interfax.
Four other Kazan residents have received suspended sentences of three years and six months to five years in prison.
“The accomplice Gimaliyev was found insane and is exempt from criminal liability. He will be forcibly treated,” Loseva said.
“Forcibly treated.” Horrible.
In another press release about extremist influence, the Russians claim that the number of followers of the Hizb ut-Tahrir movement among Crimean Muslims has jumped from 800-900 to 30,000, “including 90 percent of Tatars from Alushta.”
