IRPT and ISIL: the practical evidence of the same teachings, activities, and aims of these two extremist organizations

DUSHANBE, 08.11.2017. /NIAT “Khovar”/. As previously was reported, the responsibility for the recent terrorist attack in New York was assumed by ISIL (banned in Tajikistan). This again demonstrates the serious threat posed by this terrorist organization to the whole world, including to Tajikistan, which is part of the world community. Especially at a time when the teaching, activities, and aims of ISIL and the extremist-terrorist organization of the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan (banned in Tajikistan) coincides. About this, an article was published in the newspaper “Faraj”, which today we decided to reprint in English translation.

Over the last years, the whole world has been shocked by the brutality of an extremist and terrorist group of the so-called “Islamic State” or ISIL. Every day, people around the world are horrified by the scenes of a particularly brutal group killing of innocent people, the burning or blowing up people, recording video on killing people and enjoyment of watching them, teaching kids to slaughtering, building grave-like prisons, introducing slavery and slave trade, the destruction of people on their ethnic and religious affiliations and thousands of other crimes committed by ISIL.

On watching these scenes, any sober citizen of Tajikistan will involuntarily say well that our people are far from these horrors and the atmosphere of peace and freedom reigns in our country. When I see these scenes on TV, I thank a hundred times that the way of ISIL was timely prevented in Tajikistan and our state banned the activity of ISIL on time!

The organization called itself the IRPT in Tajikistan, but its activities showed that the differences between them are only in the name. All facts and evidence prove that the IRPT is the same ISIL and ISIL – the same IRPT. The same ideology, same aim, one task, one way of acting, or as they say “one handwriting”. Only depending on the country of location: the name of ISIL has the words of “Iraq and the Levant” and the name of IRPT – the word of “Tajikistan”.
