DUSHANBE, September 11. /TASS/. Tajikistan’s official mass media have accused the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan (IRP) of having created an armed gang and attempted to stage a coup in the country.
The article titled No trust for Islamic extremists, published by the official Khovar news agency, stresses that the party’s leader Muhiddin Kabiri "was in conspiracy with the republic’s former deputy defense minister Abulhalim Nazarzoda with the goal of staging a coup."
The article stresses that this is confirmed by "many long business trips and meetings of the IRP’s leader abroad and also his long stay in Turkey where he founded ideological headquarters."
The report says Nazarzoda, who fought on the side of the Islamic opposition during the civil war of 1992-1997, "was the military planner and the leader of the anti-government rebellion."
The special operation carried out by government forces against the supporters of the former deputy defence minister earlier this month found a large cache of arms and ammunition, including 400 rifles, according to the news agency.
