- Recently, when we were in Medina, we saw the Prophet Muhammad’s sayings and the museum of Islamic civilization. It would be good if we could establish a similar museum here. It will show the life of our muhaddith Imam Bukhari, the path of knowledge, the history of that time through information technologies. These will remain in the vivid imagination of young people and foreign tourists. The museum will be another spiritual treasure for our people, the head of state said.

The Ministry of ICT Development and the Ministry of Construction were instructed to prepare a project in this regard.
