Early this morning in Derbent three people were killed: Imam of a block mosque Karimulla Ibragimov, his 82-year-old father and 50-year-old brother. They were shot on the way to the morning prayer, after which the criminals fled in the car in an unknown destination. The investigation alleges that the murder cause could be Ibragimov's professional activity. The experts told GTimes that the cause was far deeper than the banal revenge of the Wahhabis.


The main version of the investigation is that Karimulla Ibragimov was killed because of his educational activities. Relatives and friends of the victims said today that the Imam of the mosque in Derbent was repeatedly threatened. At the same time, in the mosque they say that the victim was trying not to engage in the conflict with anyone, and even more was not engaged in propaganda against anyone. Such was his character and specificity of the mosque, where he had been Imam for years.

The feature of Southern Dagestan is that all of Islam confessions there are equal. Tarikats followers prayed along with Shias and Salafis in this mosque. Parishioners recall that Karimulla Hajji skillfully extinguished conflicts which often arose in the mosque. But all the controversy died down after the words of Karimulla Hajji.

"For Dagestani Sufi Imam Karimulla Hajji was a spiritual mentor and educator", Ruslan Gereyev, Director of the Center for Islamic Studies of the Northern Caucasus told GTimes. "But his educational activity did not turn into propaganda. Period of propaganda against the radicals in Dagestan is over. Both the Salafis and Sunnis are trying to more or less get along in the society", the expert says.
