«Every one of their cases is against the Koran and Sharia, and therefore against the government». About the Bubi brothers’ court case
On May 28, 1912, in the city of Sarapul, Vyatka province, a court session was held in the case of the Bubi brothers. A report about him was published in the newspaper “Yulduz” on May 27, May 31, June 3, 1912, and in Cyrillic in the collection “Bertugan Bubyylar һәm Izh-Buby madrәsәse” (1999). The author translated this material into Russian. In the introduction, he analyzes the nature of the report: the journalist speaks very favorably towards the enlightenment brothers and caustically ridicules Ishmi-ishan, notorious for his attacks on the Jadids. The text of the report allows you to feel the mood of the liberal part of the Tatar society of that time, the attitude of the Russian population of the region to the problems of the Tatar neighbors.
