About Khatlon

The Khatlon Region, one of Tajikistan's four provinces, is the most populated of the country's four first-level administrative areas. It is located in the country's southwest region, between the Hisor (Gissar) Range to the north and the Panj River to the south, and shares a border with Afghanistan to the southeast and Uzbekistan to the west. Khatlon was split into two oblasts during Soviet times: Kurgan-Tyube (Qurghonteppa) Oblast (Western Khatlon), which included the Kofarnihon and Vakhsh river basins, and Kulob Oblast (Eastern Khatlon), which included the Kyzylsu and Yakhsu river valleys. Both areas were combined into today's Khatlon Region (or viloyat/oblast) in November 1992. Bokhtar, historically known as Qurghonteppa and Kurgan-Tyube, is the capital city.
Khatlon, along with Sughd, became one of Tajikistan's two major cotton districts during the Soviet period (Leninabad). In the early 1930s, agricultural collectivisation was intensively pursued in order to promote cotton farming across Tajikistan, with a special focus on the republic's southern region. The method included peasant infractions, significant extension of the irrigation network, and forceful displacement of highland peoples and people from Uzbekistan to the plains.
The outcomes of this approach are seen in the ethnic composition of Salua oblast, as well as the fact that the Tajik population self-identifies as Gharmis (mountain dwellers) or Kulobis. These organisations never merged and battled each other throughout Tajikistan's Civil War. Tajikistan's Khatlon oblast sustained the most severe damage.
Due to the fact that the problems that precipitated the civil war were never really addressed, tensions in the area continue to remain. The eastern section - Kulob – is home to the president and his kin, and as such has amassed considerable political clout. During the Soviet period, the area collaborated with the governing elite of Leninabad and was in charge of the militia, army, and security forces. Kulob is considered to be a very conservative area. The Islamic opposition has widespread support among the Garmis in the capital Bokhtar and sections of Kulob.
Khatlon is the home of the Kulyab clan. Colonel Mahmud Khudoiberdiyev staged a mutiny in February 1996, demanding on the resignation of three Kulyab clan leaders before he could cease the uprising. Government officials cooperated. Additionally, Prime Minister Dzhamshed Karimov and Chairman of the Leninabad Oblast executive committee Abudzhalil Khamidov resigned.
Khatlon covers 24,700 square kilometres and is divided into 21 districts and four district-level towns. Khatlon's total population was 3,348,300 in 2020, up from 2,677,251 in the 2010 population census. Khatlon's population is mostly agricultural.
In 2010, the Khatlon region's ethnic makeup was 81.8 percent Tajik, 13.9% Uzbek, 0.5 percent Turkmen, and 4.6 percent other. The ethnic makeup of the Kulob area is as follows: 85% Tajiks, 13% Uzbeks, and 2% others. Bokhtar is composed of 59 percent Tajiks, 32 percent Uzbeks, and 3% Russians.
