Hijab ban in Kyrgyz school irks Muslims

 

A decision by a Kyrgyz region to ban hijab in schools has sparked concerns among Muslims, amid reports that the ban may be applied across the country by next autumn.

Authorities claim that the ban came in response to complaints by dozens of parents against donning hijab in schools.

Muslims make up 75 percent of Kyrgyzstan's 5-million population.

The right to religious freedom has recently come under attack in Kyrgyzstan, according to domestic and international rights activists.
