Tajikistan launches own social-networking website

Bishkek (AKIpress) - Tajikistan has launched a new social-networking website expected to become an alternative to the Russian odnoklassniki.ru, which had been inaccessible to many in Tajikistan since July 18, Asia-Plus reports.

Ghanijon Salomzoda, the founder of the new site, vipnet.tj, told journalists on July 23 that it prohibits the publication of extremist materials and the use of foul language.

The site also prohibits “the uploading of materials violating Tajik traditions,” as well as videos and photos that “violate Islamic legislation,” and materials violating copyright law.

It is not clear what is meant by “Islamic legislation” and what materials “violate Tajik traditions.”

The odnoklassniki.ru was used by Tajiks to share information and materials about different topics, including some thoughts to be sensitive for Tajik authorities.
