Ban Skirts to Save Girls From Lustful Gazes: BJP MLA
A BJP MLA in Rajasthan has demanded a ban on skirts as uniform in schools to keep girls away from "men's lustful gazes".

Alwar (Urban) legislator Banwari Lal Singhal has written a letter to the state chief secretary C K Mathew, demanding that skirts should be replaced by trousers or Salwar-kameez.

"The intention of this demand is to keep girl students away from men's lustful gazes and for their comfort in hot and cold weather conditions," Singhal told PTI.

"It is not a Talibani type of thinking or restriction on girls' freedom or right but a concern for their safety," he said.

"I have myself caught several boys taking pictures of school girls by their cell-phones and girls were not aware of it. Such pictures could be misused."

"Everyone will have to make sure on one's personal capacity that the dignity of women is protected and this is my effort in my capacity," he said.

Stating that crime cases, particularly sexual harassment, is increasing in Alwar, he said, "The government should take steps to check crime but it is the duty of everyone to make an environment to ensure that crime is not flourished."

Rape cases are golden opportunities for these dress-code Talibans to step out of their nests. These morons must know that the even toddlers and sari-clad women are not safe in the country.
