Over 4,000 Uzbekistani Muslims taken off extremist blacklist


TASHKENT -- Uzbekistani authorities have removed 4,152 names from their blacklist of Uzbekistani Muslims suspected of extremist leanings, CA-News.org reported Thursday (July 27), quoting the Spiritual Administration of Muslims of Uzbekistan (DUMU).

The names came off the blacklist after the 4,152 Muslims' imams met with them and promised to serve as guarantors that those Muslims would no longer "stray from the chosen path", according to DUMU.

After the first stage so far of conversations with blacklisted Muslims, imams recommended de-listing 10,990 individuals, including the 4,152 whose names later came off the list.

The process of reducing the blacklist, which contains thousands of names and which law enforcement compiled over several years, will continue, said DUMU.
