UP Khap Panchayat Bans Jeans, Mobile Phones For Girls

An other community panchayat, infamously called ‘kangaroo court’ in Uttar Pradesh has come up with new dictates for girls. It has banned girls from wearing jeans and keeping mobile phones with them. The panchayat has claimed that these two factors were having a “bad” effect on them and were responsible for eve-teasing incidents.

The dictate came from panchayat of the Gujjar community that was held at Jadwad village. It passed the diktat banning wearing of jeans and use of mobile phones by unmarried girls. The panchayat also claimed that eve-teasing incidents had increased due to “objectionable” clothes worn by girls.

Not only this , it also asked the community people not to have disc jockey during wedding functions.
