Hisar, Dec 1: The Haryana-wing of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha on Monday put forth a number of demands to check 'increasing obscenity'.
The right-wing Hindu organisation wants a dress code be introduced in schools and colleges in the state and mobile phones be banned on their premises. According to the organisation, vulgar clothes causes rape.
The Sabha has received supports from several Khap Panchayats in the state.
"Vulgur clothes lead to incidents of rape. To curb increasing obscenity in society, a particular dress code should be introduced in schools and colleges", Vice President of Akhil Bharat Hindu Mahasabha (ABHM) Dharmapal Siwach told reporters in Haryana, according to an Outlook report.
"The attire should cover the body and not be indecent. Moreover girls should be banned from wearing tight jeans and tops", he said.
The members of the group, under the leadership of Haryana in-charge Narendra Sharma, are all set to meet state Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar to bring the demands into enforcement.
"Our culture is getting affected due to live-in- relationship and hence a law prohibiting live-in-relationships should be enacted," Siwach said, according to the report.
"Society's mentality is not mature enough to give unrestricted freedom to the youths", he added.
Here are the Mahasabha's other demands:
The covering of face by girls while driving two-wheelers should be banned, demanded the Sabha. "To secure our culture, guardians will have to consider the recommendations made by the Mahasabha," the ABMH vice-president said.
Wearing "dupatta" should be made mandatory for girls going to schools and colleges, he said.
A ban on carrying of mobiles during school and college hours as they allow access to websites that promote obscenity is another demand put forth by the Sabha.
