DUSHANBE, December 2, 2014, Asia-Plus – The Islamic Revival Party of Tajikistan (IRP) is of a threat for modern society no less than the Taliban or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the director of the Center for Modern Processes Studies and Forecasting under the Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan, Hofiz Boboyorov, told Asia-Plus in an interview.

“Our Center is engaged in studying events taking place in the world, including those taking place in the Muslim world, and informing society of them,” the think tank head noted.

“Articles about the threat posed by the IRP to secular society that have been published in media sources in recent months are the point of view of our researchers,” said Boboyorov.  “The Islamic Revival Party with its pseudo-democratic slogans and anarchical views should go out of the political arena of Tajikistan.  We will continue to prove the uselessness of a religious party in modern society in the future as well.”     

We will recall that during a meeting with representatives of Tajik labor migrants and the Tajik Diaspora that took place in Moscow on November 30, IRP leader Muhiddin Kabiri sharply criticized “a certain part of employees of the Academy of Sciences of Tajikistan” who have reportedly done nothing for development of Tajik science and just been engaged in blackening separate political parties and religious figures.
