BISHKEK, March 3. /TASS/. Security forces and police in Central Asia's Kyrgyzstan republic have detained a female group from the banned pan-Islamic political organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir, the National Security Committee said on Tuesday.
The group was carrying out propaganda work, recruiting young people and spreading extremist literature calling for an overthrow of the state's constitutional system, sources told TASS. Extremist literature and digital material had been found during searches. Police gave no details of how many women had been held.
Hizb ut-Tahrir is banned not only in Central Asia, but in most Asian nations. Its main aim is to topple secular regimes in that part of the globe to create a new Islamic Caliphate ruled by Islamic law and with a "caliph" head of state elected by Muslims.
