      DUSHANBE, Sept 28: Teachers aged under 50 in Tajikistan can no longer grow beards but are allowed to give their lessons in rain boots, according to official guidelines published on Monday.

      "Men over 50 are allowed to have beards no more than three centimetres long, while younger men should be clean shaven," according to a copy of an education ministry decree.

      "As for footwear, it can be anything that fully covers the foot, including galoshes," it added.

      Tajikistan says the rules are part of reforms and that they meet "the mentality and customs of the people".—AFP
