Tashkent (UNA-OIC) – On August 31, President of the Republic of Uzbekistan Shavkat Mirziyoyev visited the Shahidlar Khotirasi (Memory of Victims) alley.

Elders, representatives of state and public organizations gathered to honor the memory of victims of repression. Surahs from the Quran and dua were recited in memory of the departed. Memorial pilaf was served. 

Since 2001, August 31 has been celebrated as the Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Repression. Work continues to perpetuate and study their lives and heritage. Last year, the Museum of Memory of the Victims of Repression was reconstructed. Such museums were opened in the Republic of Karakalpakstan and all regions.

This year, an exposition dedicated to the 100th anniversary of sending Jadid students to study in Germany has been organized in the museum.

The Head of the state visited the museum and got acquainted with the exposition.

“There is a reason that we come here every time and honor their memory. It was not easy to achieve independence. Although independence was gained 31 years ago, our grandfathers tried to achieve it more than 100 years ago. 100 thousand of our compatriots were repressed, and 13 thousand were mercilessly shot. Why? Because they were our greatest heroes, the treasure of the nation. They knew 2-3 languages. The regime had an understanding that they were able to liberate our Motherland and bring it to prosperity. In this place, it seems as if their voices are heard”, Shavkat Mirziyoyev said.

Speaking about this, the President recalled a verse from the Holy Quran. Surah Ali ‘Imran Verse 169 says: “And never think of those who have been killed in the cause of Allah as dead. Rather, they are alive with their Lord, receiving provision”.

The memory of our martyr ancestors who gave their lives for the freedom of our people, truth and justice will live forever.
