India-Tajikistan Relations: The Security Factor
Dr Pravesh Kumar Gupta, Associate Fellow, VIF

India and Tajikistan share great historical and cultural relations. Tajikistan was a part of Kushana and Persian Empires which had close cultural linkages with the Indian subcontinent. During the Islamic rule in India, Persian language and Sufism from Turkestan got assimilated into the Indian society which contributed to the base of cultural and linguistic cooperation in the modern times. Today, Tajikistan is an extended neighbour of India and is geo-strategically significant for India’s Central Asia policy.
