Removed piece[edit]

All this was way after the Khanate was disbanded, hence irrelevant to the article. Not to say that the piece incorrectly descibes what government was exactly formed, which is already covered in the Jadid article.

Flag of Kokand 1917-1918
In the wake of riots against the World War I draft and the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Jadidist Mustafa Chokayev established the Provisional Autonomous Government of Turkestan in late 1917, as a nationalist and Muslim alternative to the Tashkent Soviet. The Bolshevik response to this competition was swift and ruthless. The Red Army breached the old city walls in February 1918, setting the city on fire and killing 18,000 inhabitants.[citation needed] Chokayev escaped to France, but his partisans fled into the mountains, where, as basmachi, they continued to fight against the Red Army through the early decades of Soviet rule.

Furthermore I'm pretty sure Mustafa Chokay was involved with the Alash Orda in Semipalatinsk, not the Kokand autonomy. Sikandarji 21:24, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Persian reference[edit]

The source used for Persian does not mention Persian as a state-level language. I am removing it.

You are right, the source merely mentions Perisan literature. So I restored "Persian," but removed "(official)."--¿3family6 contribs 17:47, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

You can not add Persian as a main language just because there are some books. There were more Arabic books than Persian at that time. Ferghana valley was always Turkic speaking region (at least for last 1000 years). The name of Kokand is turkic (turkic tribe name), and today's Uzbek literature language is based on the dialect of Kokand Khanate. Even Kyrgyz language had more speakers than Tajik. So we have 2 options: a) removing all minor languages (less than 10% combined) and keeping only Uzbek or b) adding other languages such as Kipchak (Kipchak people assimilated by Kyrgyz and Uzbek) and Karakalpak (historically Karakalpaks lived near Naryn river) too. But I would not mess the article with unnecessary references, because I do not know other articles with 4-5 languages mentioned as state languages.

Okay, go ahead and remove Persian then. I did not know this, I am not at all experienced in this region of the world's history.--¿3family6 contribs 23:46, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
