Jeans, body hugging dresses banned in Lahore college fearing terror threatApril 30th, 2009 - 5:55 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, Apr.30 (ANI): Fearing terror threats from the Taliban and other extremist groups, a college here has banned students from wearing jeans and other body hugging dresses.
According to the Daily Times, the Kinnaird College (KC) administration has imposed a strict dress code for the students.
The dress code allows students to wear only eastern ethnic dresses such as shalwar qameez or loose trousers.
Dupattas have been made mandatory for girl students in the college.
However, college official said the dress code had nothing to do with the terror threat, and the college administration is only following a government notification.
“The measures are in line with a government notification, and has no connection with rumours about burqa-clad women issuing warnings to students,” vice-principal of the college Nikhat Khan said . (ANI)
