Russian Mufti Calls for Inclusion of Crescent in National Emblems

Grand Mufti Talgat Tadzhuddin of Ufa, the official leader of central Russia's Muslims, has called for the incorporation of the crescent into Russia's national emblems. More on that here. In response to his call another leader of Russia's Muslims, Muhammed Ali Huzin, said in part that the "historic and objective notion of the 'Orthodox majority' should be treated with respect...indeed, Orthodox believers in Syria do not demand to feature their religious symbols on the state emblem, although Syria has an Orthodox patriarchate." More on his comments here.
