Independence day of Tajikistan




Tajikistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia, formally known as the Republic of Tajikistan. Dushanbe is the country’s capital and largest city. It is bordered on the south by Afghanistan, on the west by Uzbekistan, on the north by Kyrgyzstan, and on the east by China. Sections of Afghanistan and Uzbekistan are part of the Tajik people’s traditional homelands as well. Tajikistan was once home to multiple ancient cultures, including the Neolithic and Bronze Age metropolis of Sarazm, and was afterward ruled by kingdoms of several faiths and cultures, including Buddhism, Nestorian Christianity, Hinduism, and Islam.

Several empires and dynasties have ruled over the region, including the Achaemenid Empire, Sasanian Empire, Hephthalite Empire, Samanid Empire, and Mongol Empire. The Russian Empire then seized the territory, which was then taken over by the Soviet Union. The country’s existing borders were drawn when it was an autonomous republic within the Soviet Union before becoming a full-fledged Soviet republic in 1929.

Faced with a spillover of upheaval in Eastern Europe that began in Poland, the Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic, along with other U.S.S.R. republics, declared independence. However, this independence was declared while the Soviet Union was still in existence. Despite this, the declaration was simply the first step on the road to Tajikistan’s true independence.

The national republics began the process of declaring national independence after the failed coup staged by the State Committee on the State of Emergency in August 1991. Tajikistan’s Communist Party, which had previously ruled the country, was likewise legally disbanded. The Supreme Soviet issued a Resolution and Declaration “On State Independence of the Republic of Tajikistan” on September 9, 1991, which was formally signed by acting president Qadriddin Aslonov. Tajikistan was granted formal independence on December
