Russian Rule in Samarkand 1868-1910

Oxford University Press

This chapter covers the Islamic judiciary and its relationship with the colonial regime. Unlike the British, the Russians preserved the position of Qazi as the first port of call for those seeking justice, and throughout this period they dealt with the overwhelming majority of cases involving the native population. Despite outward continuity, however, the Qazi's role and the background of those taking up appointments seem to have changed towards the end of the century, and the system was afflicted with corruption in much the same way as the rest of the native administration.

Keywords:   Sharia, law, Qazi, Islamic judiciary
