In an interview with “news-Georgia” Western Georgia mufti Beglar, Kamashidze stated that the video could cause irritation to the radical groups. “In my opinion, these ads will cause greater resentment among radical groups, which in the future will bring even more problems to the state and the country. You cannot use religion as the advertising,” he said.
The mufti explained that in the video the background is used a preaching mentor in Arabic.
“I listened to the video. It is not they (the participants of the video) say. The background used the preaching mentor. There they say “Allah Akbar”. This cynicism. They either mock the Islamic religion or adopt the hatred of Islam in society,” said Kamashidze.
Religion should not be used for their own purposes, for their business, said the mufti.
