The following is a draft translation from Arabic.

The fictitious expansion of the ruling party is an exercise to demonstrate its strength.
The Democratic Peoples Party of Tajikistan is the ruling party of the Republic and its President Rahmanov is ruling since 1994CE. At a meeting held on 23rd September 2006CE the party nominated its president for the presidentship of the republic.
Reliable information suggests that the ruling Democratic Peoples Party of Tajikistan is making efforts in various parts of the land to even forcibly boost its ranks. People of various categories are being enrolled; especially the intelligentsia including doctors, students, workers and the wealthy are being coerced into joining its ranks. The intention is to project the party as a gigantic one that has supporters and members in different parts of the land and to portray the party as one that is capable of ruling.
But the fact remains, and is apparent that there are other legal parties in the country and they can not even hope to compete with the ruling party in any single matter. But the ruling party does not dare to allow any of them to challenge its nomination. This was very much apparent in the statements of the nominees of other parties during the election campaign. These other nominees did not even make an effort to hide their inability to pose a serious challenge to the candidate of the large ruling party. As an instance we cite the newspaper Asia Plus’s coverage of the election campaign under the heading “How can they even challenge the current President?” During the interview in the newspaper, the nominee of the Communist Party of Tajikistan Ismail Talbakov observed: “President Rahmanov has done a huge service to the people of Tajikistan and he has a special place in our history”! Alim Babayov, the candidate of the Economic Reforms Party, replying to a question said: “The people know Rahmanov as an outstanding personality”. While Abdul Haleem Ghaffarav, the candidate of the Socialist Party remarked: “It is not easy to stand in the ranks of Rahmanov”.
Oh! Muslims of Tajikistan!
Membership of any party or association not founded on the principles of the Islamic Aqeedah is absolutely forbidden, irrespective of whether such a party is in ruling or an opposition party. In fact the presence of these non Islamic parties in the Muslim countries is merely a farce and is actively promoted by the Kafir West. And because the supporters of these parties come together to the path of Taghoot (evil), and invite people to the ways of the Shaytan, grave punishment awaits them in Akhirah (afterlife), Allah (swt) says:
اسْتَحْوَذَ عَلَيْهِمْ الشَّيْطَانُ فَأَنسَاهُمْ ذِكْرَ اللَّهِ أُوْلَئِكَ حِزْبُ الشَّيْطَانِ أَلَا إِنَّ حِزْبَ الشَّيْطَانِ هُمْ الْخَاسِرُونَ + إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُحَادُّونَ اللَّهَ وَرَسُولَهُ أُوْلَئِكَ فِي الأَذَلِّينَ (المجادلة:19 و 20
“The Evil One has got the better of them: So he has made them lose the remembrance of Allah. They are the Party of the Evil One. Truly it is the Party of the Evil One that will perish! Those who resist Allah and His Apostle will be among those most humiliated.” (TMQ: Al-Mujadilah: 19 & 20)
