Memory Lane Monday: Tajikistan Texts

Tajik traditional clothing."Think traditional pink."In keeping up with our Creepy October Mondays, this week PD (using our best Crypt Keeper impersonation) would like you to dim down the lights and imagine a world where the Government tells you how to dress.

Welcome boils and ghouls, to Tajikistan.

Following August’s new Traditional Dress Law (actually just a minor amendment to Article 14 of the 2007 Law on Observing National Traditions and Rituals) which demands people, “Adhere to Traditional and National Tajik clothing,” Tajikistan has taken to texting their citizens with outfit recommendations.

6 Million received the following text messages:

“Let's make it a tradition to wear traditional clothes.”

“Respect traditional clothes.”

“Observe Tajik traditional clothes.”

Ideally, traditional dressing would mean not wearing anything Western or outright Islamic.Those brows though.

For example, one way to approach traditional dressing, according to the Government, would mean that your hijab, an accessory President Emomali Rahmon once called a clear sign of, “Poor education and incivility,” should be tied so your neck is exposed and the scarf comes above your ears.

Still confused about what to throw on before you head out the door? Don’t worry, in July, the Tajikistani Government created a special committee to, “Help design clothes for men and women.”

Again, this has all happened in 2017.

    All countries have their national dresses and they are respected by the citizens a lot. The clothing of the women of Tajikistan have been shared by this blog and one can also get good content on it from the assignment service and many students are get services here.
