‘Black Is Only For Funerals!’ Kazakh President Calls For Ban Against Islamic Attire

Black clothing is only for funerals, says Kazakhstan’s president, who wants a legal ban on certain Islamic clothing — such as body-covering black garments for women and so-called Salafi-style ankle-length pants for men.

In a meeting with the country’s religious leaders in the capital, Astana, on April 9, Nursultan Nazarbaev expressed concern over what he described as a growing trend among young Kazakhs to opt for religious garb.

“Our young men grow beards and cut the length of their trousers [above the ankles],” he said, referring to styles of dress and appearance that are often associated with conservative Muslims who are branded as “Salafis” and portrayed by the authorities as followers of a potentially dangerous strand of Islam.

    Most officially Muslim countries are far more liberal than the Salafist-run areas in the west. Women in many areas of Pakistan walk around in normal western clothes without any problem. In parts of Birmingham, five year old girls have to wear the burka.
