Avesta.Tj | 01.07.2015 | Tajikistan’s Interior Ministry uploaded Wednesday on its website the list of literature propagating ideas of the Salafi religious movement -- a banned extremist sect.
On Jan. 8, 2009, Tajikistan's Supreme Court added the movement to its list of extremist religious groups prohibited from operating in the country.
On Dec. 8, 2014, the Supreme Court formally labeled the banned Salafi group as an extremist organization. The group’s website and printed materials are also banned in the country.
The Salafi movement, which takes its name from the term salaf, "ancestors" or "early generations" in English, advocates a pure form of Islam that is said to be similar to that practiced by the earliest generations of Muslims starting with the Prophet Muhammad.
Salafis do not recognize other branches of the religion, particularly Shi'ism and Sufism.
The following is the list of banned Salafi literature:
