"I have not watched the video with the children and I cannot comment on it," said Abdulah Salih, regional mufti of the Bulgarian town of Pazardzhik, speaking for Radio FOCUS in a commentary on the video clip of children [said to be of Roma origin] from the Bulgarian town of Pazardzhik, who imitated the executions made by the jihadists.
"Someone is trying to make a PR action at the expense of the Muslims. This is a video made back in 2009, it is not a new one. This is something done in general when there are ceremonies, while the scene itself is from the Koran. It says that Ibrahim had to sacrifice his child to Allah. The child was born after being waited for for 90 years. The purpose is to show the selflessness and the power of faith," Salih said further.
