Kazakh President proposes to establish Agency on religious affairs

ANA. October 26. KAZINFORM /Kanat Kulshmanov/ Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev considers necessary to establish Agency on religious affairs. The Head of the state has said it today at the 15 session of the People's Assembly of Kazakhstan.

"Today some young Kazakhstanis receive religious education abroad. There exist cases when they come under the influence of the extremist ideas that don't have anything in common with religion", the Kazakh President said.

"Our main confessions together with the state authorities could work with the youth more actively, helping them to get true religious knowledge", N.Nazarbayev noted.

"Probably we need to establish special Agency on religious affairs. I charge the Presidential Administration and the Kazakh Government to work on this issue", the Kazakh President said.
