Independence Day is a public holiday in the Republic of Tajikistan, and it is observed on September 9 each year. The holiday commemorates the anniversary when Tajikistan achieved its independence in 1991.
Tajikistan is a landlocked country in Central Asia. People inhabited the territory for thousands of years under different empires and dynasties. In the late 19th century, the Russian Empire took control of Central Asia.
After the 1917 Russian Revolution, the Basmachi movement, an uprising against Russian rule, seized power in many parts of Central Asia, but the Red Army defeated the Basmachi forces in 1923.
The Tajik Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic was created as a part of the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic in 1924, and it became the constituent Tajik Soviet Socialist Republic in 1929. Following the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Tajikistan declared independence on September 9, 1991.
