DUSHANBE, January 8. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s police have arrested ten people over alleged terrorism involvement, the country’s Interior Ministry reported on Thursday.
“All the ten people belonging to the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, which the Supreme Court has put on the list of terrorist organisations, were detained in the Shakhrinavsky district (40 km west of Dushanbe),” the ministry’s press service said.
The suspects were preparing for an attack on a local police department to seize weapons for further acts of sabotage in the country. Besides, the police identified heads of the criminal group - Rakhim Boboerov and Imam Ikrom Khalilov.
The suspects also planned to collect money to go to Syria and to participate in the armed conflict there supporting the anti-governmental forces.
On Wednesday, Tajikistan’s supreme religious authority (the Islamic Centre of Tajikistan) warned categorically the country’s Muslims against involvement in armed conflicts abroad.
“True Muslims, who have good religious knowledge, will never call on their brothers in religion for jihad either in this country or abroad. Those calling on people to join the war breach sharia’s elementary laws.”
Tajikistan’s Interior Ministry reports over 50 members of terrorist underground were detained in 2014.
