Eltuz sources have confirmed that imams have shown support for President Mirziyoyev’s initiative to show educational and cultural films in mosques.
At a meeting with film-makers on December 29, 2018, the president said “It can be done in mosques as well. Thank you for coming here. Can we say that we have a new film?”
Speaking about the lack of films about prominent cultural and historical figures such as Babur, Ulugbek, Biruni, and Al-Bukhari, the president said that such films could play an excellent role as an educational tool.
