Dushanbe. July 13. INTERFAX – the Authorities of the Sughd region of Tajikistan (North) established a working group on the promotion of women’s refusal to wear an alien national culture clothing.
The regional Internet-edition SugdNEWS with reference to the press service of the Committee on women and family Affairs under the government of Tajikistan reports that the group included representatives from the spheres of education, health, religion, youth organizations, women’s movement, police and sports.
“The head of the Sughd Department for family and women Nodira Mirzozoda put before the working groups tasks to strengthen the propaganda for the elimination of the hijab and satra by the residents of Khujand as alien to the Tajik clothes. To this end, they visit all the districts of Khujand city, the centers of trade, health, sewing shops, schools, kindergartens, restaurants, markets of the city”, – stated in the message.
Earlier, the President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon urged to give serious attention to protecting national culture from foreign influence.
As stated by President of Tajikistan Emomali Rahmon, in recent years, under the influence of social networks in the country, especially among women, intensified propaganda “alien to our culture clothes, that concerns us”.
“A limited group of women and girls is not a religion internally and externally, wearing black and dark clothes, violates our cultural values and obscures the cultural background of our society. While God will know the mind, worship of the heart, but not clothing, a hijab, a turban and a beard,” said the President of Tajikistan.
According to him, the Executive authorities and the relevant governmental agencies should categorically suppress these undesirable tendencies.
“Repeated repeatedly and once again: in the current context of globalization when they want to eliminate state, first destroy their language, then its culture”, – said Rakhmon.
Following this, the main theologian of the Republic of Sadacharam Abdulkadiroglu stated that it sees no need for the women to wear black religious clothing, as is the custom in some Islamic States.
