Within the framework of the visit to Nizhnevartovsk, the delegation of Tatarstan headed by the chairman of the National Assembly of the World Congress of Tatars, the vice premier of the Government of the Republic of Tatarstan Vasil Shaikhraziev laid flowers at the monument to Musa Jalil.
Then the Tatarstan delegation got acquainted with the construction of the city mosque. The initiative to erect a mosque in Nizhnevartovsk was announced back in 2000. In 2001, Muslims began to build. But because of a lack of financing, construction was often idle. Now we can say that the work went to the home stretch, and in 2018 parishioners will be able to gather in a new mosque.
In the evening Vasil Shaykhraziev will meet with representatives of the Tatar community. Before that, the Tatarstaners visited the Center for Children and Youth Technical Creativity “Patriot”.
Tomorrow, November 24, the delegation of Tatarstan will take part in the celebrations dedicated
to the opening of the Al-Hayat mosque in the city of Tomsk region.
