H.E. Rustam Minnikhanov,
The Republic of Tatarstan,
Islamic Conference Youth Forum for Dialogue and Cooperation (ICYF-DC) has been shocked and deeply saddened to learn of the tragic plane crash in Kazan, the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, which caused the loss of life of all passengers and crew members. We have also been deeply grieved to learn that your son deceased Mr. Irek Minnikhanov (may Allah SWT bless his soul and grant him with Jannah) was among those who were tragically killed in the accident. On behalf of ICYF-DC Secretariat, member organizations and whole ICYF-DC network we would like to express our deep and heartfelt condolences to You and your family, the families and relatives of the victims and the people of Tatarstan.
Our prayers are for your fortitude and strength during this time of immense grief. May Allah Subhana wa Ta’ala rest His Mercy upon the souls of the victims. Inna Lillahi Wa Inna Ilayhi Raji’una.
