President Rumen Radev received Grand Mufti Dr. Mustafa Hadzhi.

The meeting is part of the dialogue with the traditional religious denominations and comes as a token of respect for Bulgarian Muslims who are getting ready for Ramadan Bayram.

Grand Mufti Mustafa Hadzhi stated that the crisis is a good opportunity for society to consider whether it is appropriate for everything in the world of today to be traded – politics, religion, medicine.

President Radev and Grand Mufti Hadzhi agreed that the funding of the salaries of Muslim clerics by the Bulgarian state is a decisive step towards their sustainable inclusion in society. The two also discussed the prospect of Muslim clerics in the country being educated under programmes approved by the state.
