Contradiction[edit]

How can a revolt which began in 1916 have been against the 'Soviet government'? I'm not saying there's anything inaccurate here necessarily - there's just a clear need for clarification. mgekelly 20:39, 27 May 2006 (UTC)

It was against the Russians in general. It was a revolt that took many forms over a period of decades and eventually became anti-Soviet post 1918. In essence, though, it was anti-foreign-power, in this case Russia.

The 1916 Central Asian Revolt against the Russian Empire and the 1917-22 Basmachi Revolt against Soviet Russia were two separate events separated by more than a year. The first was centered in Kazakh lands around Lake Balkhash while the latter took place in the Ferghana Valley, separated by mountain ranges and a distance greater than that between Denmark and Austria. They should be in two separate articles. If the 1916 revolt was a major influence on the later revolt and there were players involved in both, the relationship should be explained in more detail.

turkic[edit]

evidence points to Basmachi being a largely Turkic movement and phenomenom, and a turkic word: http://www.issi.org.pk/journal/2006_files/no_2/article/a7.htm http://www.onwar.com/aced/chrono/c1900s/yr15/fbasmachi1916.htm http://www.britannica.com/eb/article-9013641/Basmachi-Revolt --Wisconsin96 23:28, 18 March 2007 (UTC)

Tajik or Turk[edit]

Basmachis were Tajik people not Turk. This movement started in Bukhara that at that time (and even today) is high densed Tajik populated city. This movement started only few years after Treaty of Akhal. Samarqand, Bukhara, Tashkend, Khuqand, furqana and other important cities were all Tajik cities.علی ویکی (talk) 18:11, 9 October 2009 (UTC) The Basmachi movement started in the Ferghana Valley, which is very diverse. The Basmachis had a presence in Khirgiz, Kazakh and Turkmen lands. It was a pan-Central Asian movement, and Central Asia is primarily Turkic.132.162.92.148 (talk) 02:35, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

overhaul[edit]

I just rewrote most of the article. I tried to reintegrate all existing information that was cited. Feel free to re-add anything I cut, but try to work it into the new structure of the article. If anyone wants to add dates to the various headings like last time, or somehow space them to they're easier to read, be my guests.132.162.92.148 (talk) 03:58, 17 May 2011 (UTC)

Ibrahim Bay or Ibrahim Bek[edit]

  • Ibrahim Bek seems to be incorrectly mentioned as Ibrahim Bay here. I'm not sure, however, knowing little of the period. --CopperKettle 10:50, 27 March 2014 (UTC)
