- In 1998, the law of having Uzbek the only official language of communication was put together.
- Invasion of Russia took away the religion of islam, in 1988 they revived the religion of islam.
Religious and Language Tensions/ Barriers
Religious Tensions -
A decade ago when the soviet union had collapsed and brought up danger to the hope and fear for the future of islam in Uzbekistan. Muslims from many countries would have hope that the Uzbek's would rediscover their religious traditions.
Observers were worried that islam would emerge as a political force and threaten the security of the region.
Language Tensions -
The Tajik language under pressure in ancient Samarkand.
An impact on the use of this language is tension between Tashkent and Dushanbe. When the soviet union broke up in 1991, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan have had the region's most relations. For example, disputes over water and energy. They are so bad that Tajiks in Uzbekistan and Uzbeks in Tajikistan have been accused of spying on behalf of the other country.

Nationalism In Uzbekistan-
population- 28,929,716


Thinking Critically-

Most people couldn't keep their religion because the religion islam was banned.

They didn't have much freedom to do what they want, its all under one rule.

If Uzbekistan was spread out into smaller countries, it wouldn't be successful, there wouldn't be enough economic and financial structure.
