Мирзорахматов аз ҷинси дигар аст. Дар мавриди навиштаҳои С. Мирзорахматов метавон танҳо бо ибораи хеле зебои Ибни Ҳуққал (Ҳавқал) ифодаи матлаб кард, ки барҳақ дар сурату сирати ин қабил бузургворон мефармояд: «ишон пойбанд ба фазоили ахлоқӣ нестанд ва дар касби разоил бисёр ҳарисанд».

Заложники империи Hostages of Empire

From the publisher: Автор документально показывает планомерное уничтожение таджикского этноса, которое достигло необычайного размаха в Узбекистане, населенном, главным образом, таджиками, и в самом Таджикистане в послевоенные годы при негласной поддержке ЦК КПСС и Союзного правительства. Sa''diniso Hakimova (1924-2015) was a Tajik surgeon, professor, and director of the Tajik SSR Ministry of Health Research Institute for the Protection of Mothers and Children. She was one of the first Tajik women to earn a medical degree (in 1943), and later the first to write a dissertation for a Doctorate of Medicine, which she defended in 1958. Her experience working on maternal and child health in Tajikistan led her to be increasingly critical of the public health system. Eventually, she came to subscribe to some of the more nationalistic theories that gained currency on the eve of the Soviet collapse, blaming public health issues on a concerted campaign of genocide carried out by Uzbeks with the tacit support of the Soviet government. This volume nevertheless contains valuable insights into the workings of the health system in the Tajik SSR, as well as documentary sources from the author’s personal archive.
