The Tajik Embassy has expressed its concern over a young Tajik cleric who was stabbed by unknown assailants Friday in Moscow and remains hospitalized in a serious condition.

The attack on Khairiddin Abdullah (Dostakov), was carried out by several assailants armed with knives on Friday evening near the Ryazansky Prospekt metro station in Moscow.

“This person has excellent theological knowledge, is very cultured and careful … he always stands up against extreme groups and radical tendencies that give a bad name to Islam,” embassy spokesman Muhammed Egamzod told Tajik Service of Radio Liberty.

Khairiddin Abdullah is currently in a critical condition in the hospital but the Tajik Embassy said that doctors are optimistic about his recovery.
