Muslims are the second largest religious group in Russia and they have peacefully coexisted with Orthodox believers over many centuries. However, in recent decades, some Russians have started behaving suspiciously towards Muslims, especially in the wake instability in certain regions and terrorist attacks.
The Muslims of the country are asking fellow citizens not to confuse the faithful believers with those who call themselves Muslims, but actually do not follow the norms of Islam. Theologians, in their turn, are asking people not to associate terrorism with Islam, and to use education in preventing conflicts.
