The debate about wearing religious clothing in schools is raging not only in Kazakhstan, but also throughout Europe.

My opinion is unequivocal: if the state proclaims itself secular, then all religious attributes should be removed from schools: crosses, crucifixes, the Quran, etc., students should not display their religious affiliation, i.e., they should not wear crosses, scarves, prayer beads, etc.

Outside of school, adults and children have the right to wear any symbols and clothing. There must be freedom of choice.

However, a person hiding their appearance under a burqa may be a criminal on the run, so the police should have the right to stop and identify such a person at any time and place. A person in a burqa is like a car without license plates: it can crush people, and then it is impossible to find it.
