Russia Prohibits Qur’an Translation

Source: Balkan Chronicle:

The Russian system of justice once again shocked the whole world as the district court of Novorossiysk city recognized the Russian translation of the Holy Qur’an by the famous orientalist scholar Elmir Kuliev as an extremist book. This decision is based on the announcement made by the Novorossiysk transport Prosecutor’s Office that the translation of Kuliev contains “information which can be estimated as extremist;” such information pertains certain contexts that refer to the superiority of Muslims over non-Muslims. After the court decision comes into force, a copy of it will be sent to the Ministry of Justice of the Russian Federation to enable Kuliev’s translation of the Qur’an to be added to the Federal list of extremist materials.
