After a raid on the homes of believers in Dagestan on June 1, 2019, law enforcement officers detained four civilians — one woman and three men. Three days later, the Sovetsky District Court of Makhachkala sent all four to a pre-trial detention center. Among them is Marat Abdulgalimov. What is known about him?
Marat was born in 1991 in Makhachkala (Dagestan). He grew up in a large family. He has two younger brothers and a sister. His father is a pensioner with a disability, his mother works as a sister-hostess in a local maternity hospital. Since childhood, Marat loved to drive the ball in the yard with the neighbor boys. After school, he received the specialty of an electric welder, currently works in a shoe shop as a shoe knocker. There have always been warm and peaceful relations with colleagues at work. The employer appreciates Marat very much for his honesty and hard work.
In his free time, as before, he likes to play football with friends, go out into nature, fry kebabs, fish.
From a young age, Marat's father tried to instill in his son respect for the Bible. Marat enjoyed reading and studying the Holy Scriptures. Reflecting on what he read strengthened his faith in God and confidence in this book. He was always drawn to people who live according to the commandments of Christ and love their neighbors.
The news of his son's arrest brought much pain and suffering to his mother. Marat's father is also worried about his son, but tries his best to maintain a positive attitude and encourage all family members who miss him very much and are looking forward to his release. They cannot believe that Marat, whom everyone knows as a decent and peace-loving man, ended up in prison.
