The President of Kazakhstan took the initiative at the legislative level to prohibit young people to grow a beard and women to wear black clothes. He had discussed the matter with representatives of the Muslim clergy.

As informs “the Russian Dialogue,” Nursultan Nazarbayev is convinced that young people’s desire to follow Islamic traditions contrary to the centuries-old Kazakh traditions, despite the fact that Kazakhs are Muslim, the way to dress like that is clearly borrowed from other Nations.

According to Nazarbayev, a true Muslim is known not by the clothes, and the faith and actions .

The President of Kazakhstan during a meeting with Muslim clerics expressed the view that the country must remain secular and always discover knowledge and science, moving toward the civilized world

We will note, earlier Nazarbayev instructed the government before the end of this year to work out a schedule of translation of the Kazakh alphabet to the Latin alphabet.
