Yakutsk Mayor Sardana Avksentyev rejected a proposal by Islamophobic-minded citizens to remove the Cathedral Mosque beyond the city limits, regional media reported.

The mayor expressed her principled position on this issue during a meeting with local residents in honor of the Day of Civil Activist.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Sardana Avksentyev

The event was attended by representatives of all urban community councils, organizations and associations. During the meeting, an exchange of views took place on the most pressing issues related to the development of the city.

The mayor recalled that this year was declared the year of consolidation in the republic, and in its capital the year of good-neighborliness. In this regard, Avksentyev called on the public for mutual respect and dialogue.

Also, the head of Yakutsk commented on the petition recently appeared on the Network, demanding to transfer the Cathedral Mosque outside the capital of the region. The provocative document appeared against the background of a wave of anti-migrant sentiments that swept across the region after the rape of a local resident came. At the same time, the authors of the petition argued their claim that the mosque allegedly worsens the transport stop in the city and violates the law “on noise”.

Avksentyev called the requirement to transfer the mosque unacceptable. “I do not support this proposal and I will never subscribe to it, because everything should be within the legal framework,” the ancestor concluded.
