, the Basmachi were a diverse and multi-faceted that received negligible foreign aid. The Basmachi were not viewed favorably by Western Powers, who saw the Basmachi as potential enemies due to the Pan-Turkist (Pan-Turkism) or Pan-Islamist ideologies of some of their leaders. However, some Basmachi groups received support from British and Turkish intelligence services and in order to cut off this outside help, special military detachments of the Red Army masqueraded as Basmachi forces and successfully intercepted supplies. Although many fighters were motivated by calls for jihad, Richard Lorenz, Economic Bases of the Basmachi Movement in the Ferghana Valley, 293 the Basmachi drew support from many ideological camps and major sectors of the population. At some point or another the Basmachi attracted the support of Jadid reformers, pan-Turkic ideologues and leftist Turkestani nationalists. Martha B. Olcott, “The Basmachi or Freemen's Revolt in Turkestan, 1918-24,” Soviet Studies, Vol. 33, No. 3 (Jul., 1981), 252.

The ranks of the Basmachi were filled with those left jobless by poor economic conditions, and those who felt that they were opposing an attack on their way of life.

The first Basmachi fighters were bandits, as their name suggests, and they reverted to brigandage as the movement fizzled later on. Michael Rywkin, Moscow's Muslim Challenge, 42. Although the Basmachi were relatively united at certain points, the movement suffered from atomization overall. Rivalry between various leaders and more serious ethnic disputes between Kirgiz and Uzbeks or Turkmen (Turkmen people) posed major problems to the movement. **Ryūkyū Kingdom - Shō Tai, King of Ryūkyū (1848-11 March 1879) * '''Khiva''' - Abu al-Ghazi Muhammad Amin Bahadur, Khan of Khiva (1846–1855) * '''Kokand''' - Muhammad Khudayar Khan, Khan of Kokand (1853–1858) Central Asia The batman was used in Central Asia up until at least the 18th century.
