A MONUMENT TO ABDULLA ORIPOV WILL BE ERECTED IN KARSHI
The Head of State reviewed the designs of a monument to the people’s poet, Hero of Uzbekistan Abdulla Oripov and reconstruction of the mausoleum of Abul-Muin-Nasafi.
Abdulla Oripov was a person of a unique talent, who has made a great contribution to the development of Uzbek national literature with his dramatic and non-fiction works, poems and translations. His highly artistic, philosophical poetry captured the heart of our people.
In the years of independence, the poet dedicated his talent to chanting the freedom of our homeland, the honor and dignity of our people. For many years as the head of the Union of Writers of Uzbekistan, he was engaged in education and support of young poets and writers. Besides, he worked successfully as a member of the parliament and member of the Senate of Oliy Majlis of Uzbekistan.
Abdulla Oripov, who wrote the lyrics of the National Anthem of the Republic of Uzbekistan, will live forever in the memory of our people.
The monument to the poet will be erected on a street in Karshi and will be a symbol of pride and inspiration to young people.
The President underlined the need to improve the design, to establish a school named after Abdulla Oripov and a museum, dedicated to his life and work.
Abul-Muin Nasafi was a great scholar of the XI century, who made a great contribution to the development of Islamic culture. Today his works have a high scientific value.
The President gave his recommendations for further improving the mausoleum, creating necessary conditions for the pilgrims, organizing a library and translations of the works of the scientist.
