MOSCOW, May 14 - RAPSI. Lawyer Dagir Khasavov, who made the headlines after calling for the establishment of a sharia court in Russia, said he should not be stripped of his license, his law firm reported on its web site on Monday.

In an interview with the Ren-TV channel on April 24, Khasavov proposed establishing a sharia court in Russia. He said Muslim society would enforce its own rules and any attempt to prevent them from doing so could lead to bloodshed.

The prosecutor's office declared that Khasavov sought to incite national hatred and to insult people of other religions. The prosecutor's office concluded that his statements could be considered an incitement of extremism. In this context, the Justice Ministry's Main Directorate in Moscow has filed a petition with the Moscow City Bar Association to strip Khasavov of his lawyer's license.

Meanwhile, Khasavov maintains that the media reports are an organized campaign against him.
