Allow me to congratulate him on the 20th Anniversary of his visionary leadership of the Turkmen people. Registan has some juicy press quotes.
Here are some photos of his personal mosque outside of Ashgabat where many of the celebrations took place yesterday. The Gypjak Mosque is really something. It has quotations from the Ruhnama engraved in gold encircling the minarets.
Above the main entrance: "The Ruhnama is a good book, the Koran is God's book."
How cagey is that? Can you think of anyone more deserving of a Fatwa?
