Ozodlik, RL Uzbek Service, reports that the works by Uzbek poet and oppositionist politician Muhammad Salikh are studied at Kyrgyz universities and colleges.

Professors of the Uzbek Humanitarian Pedagogical Faculty of Osh State University decided to include Salikh's works in the curriculum, not long ago.

"Studies of the comprehensive Uzbek literature will be incomplete without studies of this poet's work," Uzbek literature professors Davron Nasibkhonov and Mujassar Khalmatova say.

Salikh's books were banned in Uzbekistan and removed from all libraries a decade ago. All information on the poet was likewise removed from curricula.
