It is limit our freedom. Because in Kazakhstan we should choose what religion and what kind of clothes we want, and government can not limit our freedom.

Con

the new law does not limit religious freedom. it only prevents minority religious group from forming open institution or association by increasing the number of member. but religion is in mind. it is not in some kind of association or institution. one can practice one"s religion at home. this law will not prevent him. one can hold religious meeting at one"s home. this law will not prevent that too. so i don"t think that this new law will limit religious freedom of anybody.

I see your point of view. But what can you say about stop wearing paranjas at universities and shave beards? Do not you think that it's limiting?

Con

wear paranjas or keep beard at your home when doing religious ritual. you can practice religious ritual at home. so it is not limiting your religious freedom anyway.

I disagree with your point of view, because paraja is special clothes for religious women, she must wear that kind of staff. Moreover, they can't shave every time before going outside.

Con

if paranjas are special religious clothing of women, then those clothing should be worn only at special occasion and not on general occasion. like women don"t wear bridal dress in office or university but only at marriage (special occasion).

so far as beard concerned, it has nothing to do with religion or spirituality

Many laws reduce freedom, like the law against stealing. It prevents your freedom to help yourself from a shop. However I don't think religious freedom should be controlled by law.
