Tajikistan's Religious Law

Back in August, I highlighted a new law on the registration of religious groups in Tajikistan. IWPR reports on the current state of play, with the law still under discussion, if somewhat less restrictive than what was on the table last summer. The main point I wanted to note, however, is the opinion from IWPR that the law is targeted squarely at foreign missionaries in the country, especially Protestants. An analyst quoted by RFE-RL had thought it was anti-Sunni; I found that interesting, but couldn't see where he was getting it.
