There was a plan of Mahmut Ustaosmanoglu Efendi, the leader of the Ismail Aga Community, to pay a visit to the Chechen leader Kadirov. Mr. Adnan Oktar drew attention to this visit and said that Mahmut Master must give priority to his health and thus needs to cancel this visit.
Upon this, the prominent people of the community and the followers of Mahmut Ustaosmanoglu Efendi in Anatolia came to Istanbul to prevent this visit.

ADNAN OKTAR: It is fine that Kadirov paid a visit to Mahmut Efendi. By visiting him he has shown kindness and love. If he is guided by such a murshid, he would correct his errors, if any he has. If he is on the wrong path, then he can be guided by our sheikh’s discourses and wisdom. We can’t say, “Why does he meet him.” This is unacceptable.
It would be risky for Mahmut Efendi to go to Chechnya. Our Sheikh, our murshid is one of the last Ottoman murshids. There is no longer people like him in the world. He is a very precious person. Chechnya is located at a high altitude. If he goes to Chechnya from Istanbul, the high altitude may cause serious health risks. Mahmut Efendi has sicknesses. This is a well- intentioned attempt; We wished that he could go, that would be so fine. We wished he could go to every corner of the world. That would also be so fine. He would guide everyone, but it wouldn’t turn out as expected. In brief, that is unacceptable. We won’t send our Mahmut Hodja to Chechnya.
