    Commentary:

    The fundamental point that I derive from this article and President Atambayev’s comment is that every nation should be free to wear their traditional clothes, but people should not be radicalized to the point that they have to adopt the repressive dress codes in the name of religion. Arabization of clothes in the post-Soviet space happened as a result of relaxation of information dissemination, which has exposed a lot of people to the radical Wahhabi and extremist ideology. This is the result of perestroika, or as many say, catastroika.

    Both a miniskirt and burqa objectify and commoditize women. One is hardly better than the other.

    With the right persecution complex and victimhood, anything can be accused of objectifying women.
