[03.03.23] Kyrgyz Communists Criticize Ombudsmans Remarks on Khizbu-t-Takhrir and Communists

Kyrgyzstan Communists say that their ideology is totally different from the ideas of the religious parties. Deputy of the Legislative Assembly, member of the Kyrgyzstan Communists' Party Orozbek Duisheev noted that he does not agree with the remarks made yesterday by the Ombudsman, Tursunbai Bakir-Uulu over the issue of illegality of the Khizbu-t-Takhrir Party's ideas and ideology of Communists and Socialists.
Duisheev is against such a stance. He said that the Kyrgyz constitution prohibits establishment of political parties on a religious basis. That is why, it is incorrect to compare the Communists and Socialists to the Khizbu-t-Takhrir, Duisheev said. The underground Muslim party aims to challenge Kyrgyzstan's secular society with the ideas of establishment of a Muslim khalifat (state) by peaceful means.
