Chairman of Kazakhstan State Agency for Religion Kairat Lama Sharif tagged the statement of Freedom House groundless, Tengrinews.kz reports. The statement of the American human rights organization referred to provisions of the draft law On religious activities and religious institutions related to annual registration of religious institutions in Kazakhstan.
"Registration is a normal practice in many countries. I think that a statement that registration and re-registration violates human rights or activities of religious institutions is incorrect,” Kairat Lama Sharif told the journalists after the Religious Law was adopted by Kazakhstan Senate on September 29.
