Women in Uzbekistan have told RFE/RL’s Uzbek Service that in the run-up to the anniversary, police officers are approaching those wearing hijabs and checking their identity papers.

The officers told the women not to wear the hijab on September 1, because their loose-fitting clothes could be used by terrorists to conceal their identities or to hide explosives
