Oriental studies


This article analyses women's issues in Turkestan, including parandja (vail) abuse of their rights, the movement of the “Khudjum”, women's spiritual educational life, social status in the family, religious-political situation in Turkestan, factors that led to the religious-political situation, gender characteristics from historical retrospectives in philosophical context. It also considers broadly the main aims and trends of the work of the East and West ideologists on parandja (vail), the issues of Islam and the Sharia law, discovering and the rights of modern women. The article shows the discourses of local scientists, their proposals and discussions set in the press of Turkestan about parandja, the ideas of the place of women in the family created under dogmatic pressure of the Sharia, that there is no need to study for women, that they should stay at home and hold the house, about restricting the rights and freedom of women, that the main task is not forcibly removing the parandja, that women should be familiarized with their rights and achieve the goal on a conscious level. It also provides statistical information about that, as a result of a violent policy, our national values, oriental way of life were attacked openly by political forces, families turned into enemies for each other, the field of crimes and murders were expanded, the sacred concept of the family suffered by spiritual crisis, that the revolutionary system, opening the way for such bloodthirstiness, committed the greatest sin, pursuing the most reactionary national policy, which ultimately led to the fact that many women, subjected to mental and religious torture, became victims of the policy of "removing the parandja".
