The Pussy Riot saga took a turn for the bizarre this morning when it was announced that a mufti from Vologda, a "plenipotentiary member of the council of Russian muftis" said that he thinks the band's members ought to be freed. Nail Mustafin, the mufti in question, went on the record as saying that "we [all believing Muslims] think that these girls should be let go and should not be prosecuted."
