Islam in Moldova
In 2005, the Spiritual Organisation of Muslims in Moldova headed by Talgat Masaev was denied registration despite of the appeal of the Mission to Moldova of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe.
In March 2011, the Islamic League of Moldova (Liga Islamica din Moldova), an NGO representing Moldova's Muslims, was registered by the Moldovan Justice Ministry as the first legally recognized Muslim association in Moldova. It had applied for registration in 2008.
As of 2011, officially there were just 2,000 Muslims in Moldova. But the Islamic League said the number was closer to 17,000, though not all of them were registered as Muslims because previous governments considered Islam to be illegal.
