After mass protests against the "partial" mobilization announced in the Russian Federation, the adviser to the Mufti of Dagestan and his wife Aina Gamzatova published an appeal to the Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to "postpone" the mobilization in this autonomous republic.

She published the text of her letter to Putin on Thursday, September 29, on the Telegram channel, digi24 reports.

The appeal appeared after protests against the mobilization took place in Dagestan, which were accompanied by a fierce confrontation between demonstrators and law enforcement officers.

"Based on the announced figures - 300 thousand, and based on the number of subjects of the Russian Federation, Dagestan, as well as Chechnya, fulfilled the mobilization plan.

My people and I are asking you, given that out of the three million inhabitants of Dagestan, more than three thousand inhabitants have already been recorded, among them there are many heroes, to give us a break from mobilization," the text of the letter reads. 

According to the wife of the mufti of Dagestan, in half a year the young residents of the republic will undergo military training. 

"We promise to professionally educate the children of Dagestan in educational centers.

Please recommend experienced instructors who could train real soldiers in these six months," Aina Gamzatova asks Putin.  

The autonomous republic of Dagestan is home to a predominantly Muslim multinational population. 

It will be recalled that the residents of the Republic of Dagestan became the most active participants in the resistance.

People go out en masse to protest actions, block federal highways, beat off men from the police.

There are many women among the protesters.
