DUSHANBE, January 12. /TASS/. Fundamentalist Islamic movement Salafia has been banned as an extremist organization by the republic of Tajikistan, the prosecutor general’s office told TASS on Monday.
The group opposes introduction into Islam of other religious and philosophical concepts. It joins more than 20 blacklisted parties and communities including Al-Qaeda, the Taliban and the Muslim Brotherhood.
Tajikistan's Supreme Court ruled to ban delivery and distribution of literature and other materials propagating Salafite ideas, including restricting access to the movement’s website. “All those involved in this extremist movement will be criminally prosecuted,” the prosecutor's office said.
