Pilaf Fest in Tashkent

Pilaf – is an important part of Uzbek culture, as much as a beer for the Germans or a tea for Englishmen. There are numerous varieties of pilaf and his recipes. And it is not surprising that in Tashkent annually held Pilaf Festival, where masters, called  “oshpaz” are demonstrating their art. Festival was held today, April 18, at Uzexpomarkaz center and is not yet completed, although pilaf to our parish was almost over. Free pilaf does not lie long in a cauldron! That “tasty” event was organized during the exhibition “World of holiday – 2014.”

  • Uzbekistan: cooperation with USA and NATO – delayed action mine for President I. Karimov

    Bismillakhir rohmani Rahim! Let me introduce this work performed with hope for his mercy, content and love towards us.
    The events in Europe can’t leave indifferent anyone, and Muslims of Europe and West look at these political events as it is ordered in the Holly Koran and Sunna.
    Every faithful who read or heard about what was happening in Ukraine, about peaceful protests turning into raids and leading to the change of power, discrimination of Russian people and Orthodox church, pilling down of historical monuments and other signs of chaos should set his position as a citizen of this or that country keeping at the same time his obedience to God. Western politicians in their turn should take into consideration that Islam and its followers, Muslim communities of Europe become more and more prominent force in political life of Germany, France and other countries of European continent. And what is happening in Ukraine under supervision of European politicians – forced re-orientation of Ukrainian people to West and ‘demolition’ in Ukrainian society any Russian cultural and national features one can easily turn into not only against Russian and orthodox, but also against other people, other religions. Right and radical elements once came to power with the help of unscrupulous won’t ever leave the office and soon they will need another victim who can be our brother or sister – Muslims. There are plenty of examples – long-suffering Tunis, Egypt, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan. That is why Muslim umma of Ukraine shouldn’t be indifferent and take part in events according to the words of our beloved prophet Muhammad. Moreover in Russian society, as the author knows, Muslim umma prospers mosques are being built, faithful with the help of the state commit hadj, and the state condemns right-radical elements who are against our coreligionists, Muslims of Russia don’t have any problems in fulfilling duties of proper faithful.
    That is why the respectable President Karimov ought to think over the issue, if Uzbekistan needs cooperation and NATO which provide chaos worldwide. Won’t it happen the same with Uzbekistan as with Ukraine? USA and NATO can organize one more ‘Tashkent Maidan’ and overthrow now ruling authorities.
    Those who direct politics in Europe should pay attention to the basics of Islam and remove blinders from eyes and wipe off peel and dirt brought by journalists and political technologists. These rulers will learn a lot of new information and will be greatly surprised at the fact that The Holly Koran, Sunna and Hadith prescribe to follow such fundamental human principles such as discipline and equality, separation of power and religion. And Uzbekistan in area of military cooperation, in our humble opinion, ought to rely on secure friends and allies in SCO and CSTO.
    This short analysis of Islam political doctrine is made by author intentionally to let the reader understand that any Muslim of Europe has a right or even must do anything possible, sensible and legal so that in his and next-door countries the peace and order are and will be kept. That is why addressing Muslim community I want to say: Dear brothers! The time has come when you should be an example for your brothers and sisters in your country. Show everything decent what faithful of Europe have. Show and tell everybody how we fight discord within our society, how we help those who need it and only of our religion. By the force of persuasion and personal example try to stop feud, urge to solve the conflict in democratic way.
