Changing the Government with New Leadership Figures is Nothing more than a Patchwork for the System!
After a short period following Shavkat Mirziyoyev’s election as president for the third time, he embarked on a series of reforms, with the main focus being on the issue of personnel. It is worth noting that over 80 officials from various levels of the judiciary, internal affairs, and the tax system were dismissed. Today, the political and economic situation in the country, as well as the field of education, are in a deplorable state, and unemployment is widespread. Vices such as bribery, corruption, tribalism, and various crimes are deeply rooted. Additionally, at a time when the country's citizens working abroad, especially in Russia, are facing discrimination, economic hardships, violations of their rights, and being subjected to legal action under various pretexts, followed by being dragged into the war in Ukraine, the Mirziyoyev government cannot boldly act as an independent state to protect them. All of this strengthens the sense of frustration and lack of trust in it among the people of the country.
Therefore, immediately after the elections, the Mirziyoyev government was compelled to initiate a number of new initiatives and begin identifying and isolating the "guilty parties." Based on the aforementioned facts, we can discern that there are two intended objectives:
Firstly, to revive the hopes of people who have not yet grown weary of waiting for some positive changes, to quell their frustration, and in other words, to deceive them once again for a certain period and buy time.
Secondly, to indicate to these officials that they are the real cause of increased unemployment in the country, economic distress, and the spread of crime.
Is this really true? Is the current distress and crisis a result of the fact that officials are not fulfilling their responsibilities with accountability? And will their replacement lead to improving the situation? Absolutely not! Because the deterioration of the political and economic situation, the pressure on religious education, and the fact that hundreds of religious and political prisoners are still in jail, all of these are bitter outcomes of the democratic system and the capitalist economic system that were recently voted for in the referendum. So, reflect on the words of Allah Almighty, who says:
[وَمَنْ أَعْرَضَ عَن ذِكْرِي فَإِنَّ لَهُ مَعِيشَةً ضَنكاً]
“And whoever turns away from My remembrance - indeed, he will have a depressed life” [Surat Ta-Ha:124].
So, it's important to emphasize that Mirziyoyev, by dismissing a number of officials and blaming them entirely, is essentially implying that these individuals are responsible for everything. Thus, he prolongs the lifespan of this corrupt capitalist democracy that is unsuitable and which our people are tasting the bitterness of. By doing so, he also aims to keep our country under the influence of colonial powers like Russia, America, and China for a long time to come.
Furthermore, the green light from the "big brothers" for the recent referendum and presidential elections was actually in exchange for such "unpaid services." Therefore, there is no hope to be expected from Mirziyoyev's "reforms" for the benefit of our Muslim people. The only true path to salvation is to return to Islam, which was revealed as mercy to the worlds, and to accept it as a way of life that regulates all our affairs. If we Muslims correct our thoughts and embrace our religion in this manner, it is certain that Allah will rescue us from the problems of today and improve our condition, as Allah Almighty says:
[وَمَن يَتَّقِ اللهَ يَجْعَل لَّهُ مَخْرَجاً * وَيَرْزُقْهُ مِنْ حَيْثُ لَا يَحْتَسِبُ]
“And whoever fears Allah - He will make for him a way out, And will provide for him from where he does not expect” [Surat At-Talaq: 2-3].
