In the Fergana region of Uzbekistan began a campaign against the wearing of beards, hijabs and niqabs, according to “Ozodlik”, referring to the audio recording of the meeting, which was held by the Hakim of the region Shukhrat Ganiev.
As follows from the records, presumably the Governor at the meeting spoke about Muslims that appear with unkempt beards in public areas, calling them “scoundrels with a beard”.
In addition, according to him were identified and 851 women wearing headscarves and the hijab. “In what store, what dealer sells this kind of clothing? Because it doesn’t happen by itself, somebody buys and brings her to our country? Not for us the clothing of the Arabs, Turks and Syrians. The Uzbeks have their own national dress. This they have learned we have a culture of dressing up, but later messed it up. Why are you silent, chairmen of mahallas?!” asked his subordinate officer.
He also said that 39 people were prosecuted for propaganda of banned religious organizations.
