Chechen ruling against the Quran overturned


The Sakhalin Regional Court has granted an appeal  by Chechen Republic leader Ramzan Kadyrov, revoking a lower court’s ruling that labelled a book containing quotes and commentary on verses from the Quran as extremist.

A  judge of the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk declared the book “Plea (Dua) to God: Its Role and Place in Islam” to be extremist in August.

The ruling also questioned the legality of some verses from the Quran.
