In Kashkadarya, such a museum is located in Odina mosque – a place with a unique history.
The Odina Mosque was built in 1386 by Sakhibkiran Amir Temur. In 1868, during the invasion of the troops of Tsarist Russia, the terrace of the mosque was fired upon from cannons and destroyed. Under the totalitarian regime, the mosque was first turned into a warehouse, and in 1938 – into a prison.
“Under the totalitarian system, the honor and dignity of our people, human pride were violated. An example of this is the transformation of such a sacred place into a prison. Today, in our country, we pay special attention to raising the honor and dignity of a person. We must pay tribute to the memory of our ancestors. The creation of a museum here in memory of victims of repression is the restoration of historical justice”, the President said.
