ASTANA – Kazakhstan’s top Muslim cleric is requesting a 10% drop in food prices to mark Ramadan.

In an address published July 20, Grand Mufti Sheikh Absattar haji Derbisali, chairman of both the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Kazakhstan and of the Council of Muftis of Central Asia, called on Muslim “brothers and sisters” to honour the charitable spirit of the Almighty by reducing food prices and hotel and transport rates by 10% during Ramadan.

The mufti also urged Muslims to refrain from alcohol during Ramadan and asked supermarket owners and storeowners not to sell it.
