  • Beard outbreak in Uzbekistan
     OP - September 15, 2019, 09:22 AM

    Here's a story about forced beard-shaving in secular uzbekistan. Pretty sure that social contagions proliferate faster when met with a strong immune response.

    Quote from:
    Attempts by the Uzbek authorities to maintain a secular government but also control the spread of some Islamic practices — seen by some as non-traditional for the region — have resulted in embarrassingly odd situations.

    The latest such event took place on August 23 when police in Tashkent rounded up about a hundred men and shaved their beards.

    Quote from:
    Men’s facial hair is a recurring point of contention in Central Asia. About a year ago, Uzbek Minister of Justice Ruslanbek Davletov said that wearing facial hair is an individual’s personal decision and can only be restricted in certain cases by a labor agreement.

    The head of the Tashkent branch of the Ministry of Interior, on the other hand, around the same time spoke of the need to discourage young men from growing beards to prevent facial hair to turn into an uncontrollable phenomenon.
