Tajikistan became independent from the former Soviet Union in 1991 and it was established as a secular State, as confirmed by Article 1 of the 1994 Constitution. Therefore, although the majority of the population are Muslim, Islamic Sharia is not a source of law.  The legal system of Tajikistan has been influenced by Romano-Germanic traditions.
