DUSHANBE: The organization of the National Alliance of Tajikistan (NAT) is now recognized as the extremist and terrorist union, and its activity is banned in Tajikistan, according to the Supreme Court of Tajikistan.
Its decision dated August 15 this year approved the appeal of the Prosecutor General’s Office on the recognition of NAT as the extremist and terrorist union, banning its activity in Tajikistan, blocking the websites relating to this organization and prohibiting the import and distribution of their audio recordings, videos, literature, publications and editions in Tajikistan.
NAT was created abroad in 2018 by uniting the so-called organizations of the Association of Free -Thinking Tajiks, the Tajik Reform and Development Movement, the Central Asian Migrants Association and the terrorist-extremist organization Islamic Renaissance Party (TEO IRP), which is banned in Tajikistan.
Most experts on political and security issues believe that the TEO IRP with the creation of a new alliance, using the tricks utilized in the 1990s, intends to implement terrorist and extremist plans in the guise of an alliance. However, it is obvious that the NAT is the same TEO IRP under a different name.
The country’s Supreme Court in September 2015 banned the activity of the IRP in Tajikistan and declared it a terrorist and extremist organization.NT
