Russia has offered to ready to share with India, its expertise in dealing with the menace of Islamic radicalisation. “Our government policy shows that we can tackle the issue of radicalisation and (we are) also ready to share with other countries, and our partners, like India, the experiences of tackling this problem, especially for stopping radicalisation of the youth,” Anatoly Kargapolov, Charge D’affaires of the Russian Embassy in New Delhi, said.
Having a sizeable population of Muslims, between 5 to 15 percent, Russia has faced problems but constant work by different Russian agencies among the community has brought them into the mainstream.
“Our secret formula is pragmatism and to be fair towards others in the region…In Syria, or any other place, Russia intends to defeat IS and bring peace in the Middle-East,” he said.
Kargapolov was speaking at the launch of the book– Russian Civilisation and Islam — authored by professor Arun Mohanty, at the embassy here.
