Abstract

In Tajikistan, as well as throughout Central Asia, there is growing concern about the strengthening of radicalism and violent extremism on a religious basis, as well as problems associated with those who resort to such actions. There are also questions about how to prevent the growth of such destructive elements, such as preventing activities and funding of such groups and establishing international contacts, as well as preventing their influence on young people or manipulating young people through religion, as well as using (including criminal) purposes) structures of legitimate and illegitimate religious communities.
