Traditional Ulama of Emirate of Bukhara (Qadimists) Relations with Lieutenant Governors of Tsarist Government (1868-1917)
Abstract:   (6336 Views)
The aim of this research is to answer the questions on the approach of Qadimist Ulama of Bukhara toward the presence of Tsarist Government in their region and their relations with them and the Russian Civilization. To pave the way to answer the questions of this research this group has been introduced as the most established class of Ulama in Bukhara and the basis of their thoughts have been analyzed. The claim of this research about the approach of the Qadimist Ulama is that they banned all new (Jadid) Elements besides keeping a providential tendency and believing that their land is protecting from Russians by saints. Although the requisite of such position was to adopt a hostile stance against Russians, but they adopted a smooth approach toward Russians because most of those Ulama were officials of the Government of Bukhara and they wanted to save their posts, of course in the same time they rejected Russian Civilization. Those Ulama effectively contributed with Russians in confrontation with reformists as the domestic enemy.
Keywords: Keywords: Russia, Transoxiana, Bukhara Emirate, Qadimist Ulama, Jadidists.
