    DELHI: Tajikistan police is reported to have shaved nearly 13,000 men's beards and closed more than 160 shops selling traditional Muslim clothing to check "foreign" influences.

    A report by Al Jazeera on Thursday said police in the central Asian Muslim-majority country also convinced more than 1,700 women to stop wearing headscarves in measures seen as the secular leadership's efforts to prevent influences from neighbouring Afghanistan.

    Last week, Tajikistan's parliament banned Arab-sounding names, and marriages between first cousins, otherwise allowed in Islam.

    Last year, Tajikistan's Supreme Court banned the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan - its only registered Islamic political party - following months of violence which the government blamed on radical Islam.
    President Imomali Rakhmon, who has been ruling since 1994, is likely to ratify the new laws which seek to promote secularism and discourage foreign influences. Rahmon's current term ends in 2020.
    Rakhmon, 63, who was a state farm boss in the Soviet era, has gradually consolidated his power during 23 years of rule over the predominantly Muslim nation of eight million that went through a 1992-97 civil war in which tens of thousands died.


    Tajikistan's parliament is also considering a proposal to allow Rakhmon to run for an unlimited number of terms, cementing his grip on power as others have done in the Central Asian region.
    The main opposition force, the Islamic Renaissance Party of Tajikistan, failed to win any seats in parliament in the election last March and has since been outlawed by Rakhmon's government, with its leaders accused of plotting a coup.

    Tajikistan is already a good ally for India. They import our weapons, India has military bases in Tajikistan and now, they are looking for joint ventures with us. :p

    Well we call this as the most courageous act.
    Consider India, if a Hindu police officer even shakes his hands with a Muslim citizen suddenly all hell will break lose.
    "Attack on the constitution"
    "Maligning act of core values of India"
    "Muslims are not safe in India"
    "There is no tolerance at all"
    Pseudo-secular, mother-renting daughter-sellers will start chanting the above mantras.

    A section in India is trying to make India as INTOLERANT INDIA from INCREDIBLE INDIA. Presstitutes are fanning the wrong side for the brownie points... :(

    They're not there for average Indian population, they're assets for blocking India from international agreements.

    Unsc, mtcr etc. Can all be blocked as long as muslims/christians live past hindu kush. It's why modi stopped trying it seems,

    Better to build our power base, old fashion way. On blood,

    Not paper.

    A bold move by a strong leadership. Nip it at the bud.
