April 13th, local time, Navarine, a Russian opposition figure, posted on social media Instagram that he wanted to prosecute the prison where he was detained because the prison did not allow him to read the Koran.
According to Al Jazeera on the 13th, Navalny said that he listed a series of goals for “self-improvement” when he was in prison, including learning the Koran.
“Everyone here is talking endlessly about Islam and Muslims, and of course, 99% of them know nothing about it.” Nawaline said he decided to become the champion of the Koran among non-Muslim politicians.” I’ve read it before, but like everyone else, reading is just for ‘clocking’, but I don’t understand anything. Now I’m not satisfied with this.
Navalny also noted that he realized that he also needed to learn the Koran as a Christian in his growth and progress.
However, neither the books he brought before a month of imprisonment or books ordered from prison have not been received so far, because they need to be “reviewed”.
In the text, Navarine said that he had been working on this for a month, and he wrote a statement to the warden, which he subsequently prosecuted the prison director.
“How long can I stand, and what else can I endure?” Books are everything we have and I will definitely file a lawsuit for reading if needed.” Navalny concluded, “This is my 13th day of hunger strike, and my mood is full of philosophy.”
In December 2014, Navalny was sentenced to three and a half years in prison and five years suspended by the Moscow City District Court for fraud. On August 20, 2020, he felt unwell on a Russian flight and was taken to a hospital in Berlin, Germany.
The German government later said that Navalny had a “Novichok” type of nerve agent. The European Union, NATO and several Western governments accused Russia for this. Russia denied that when Navalny left Russia, there was no toxic substance in his body. The Russian government has also repeatedly called on Western countries not to politicize the incident.
When Navalny returned to Russia from Germany on January 17 this year, Russian law enforcement agencies arrested him for violating probation regulations on many occasions. The Moscow City District Court of Russia sentenced Navalny to three and a half years in prison on March 2, but he actually served two years and eight months.
On March 31, Navalny began a hunger strike. His lawyer claimed on April 7 that Navalny’s health was deteriorating, his legs and hands began to lose consciousness, and his weight plummeted due to the hunger strike.
