A special Muslim clergy was appointed to supervise religious affairs and Tatar education. But Islam still fostered antimony toward the Russians. At a time when self-identification was expressed in religious terms, rule by Christians was inherently problematic.

What is remarkable here is not only the racialism and essentialism involved, but the collapse of chronology.
