Moscow joined several Western cities that anger Muslims with anti-Islamic events with its 2007 art exhibition that was described as “xenophobic”.

The Coordinating Center for North Caucasus Muslims strongly denounced the exhibition and asked for proper prosecution against those responsible for displaying pieces that were humiliating and insulting to Islam.

The center even described the Academician Sakharov Public Center, which is the venue where the work has been displayed, as “extremist”; a term that is wrongly linked to Muslims.

“We became indignant as we learned from the mass media about an exhibition that was held at the Academician Sakharov Public Center in March 2007, one more exhibition that was xenophobic, humiliated the human dignity of believers on the religious basis and insulted their religious feelings”, a statement from the center said, according to the International Information Group.

“Outrageous and absolutely revolting items were shown at that exhibition, items that used unprintable swearwords, were pornographic or mocked Russia,

“Those items were extremist, deliberately xenophobic and anti-Muslim in nature, they inflicted deep insults on the Russian Muslims and humiliated their human dignity and honor, and stirred religious hostility that our muftis had to go out of their way to contain and pacify”, the statement added.
