Bihar college bans jeans, shorts for girls
prominent college in Bihar has banned jeans, shorts and other “provocative” dresses for girls on the campus in a move it says will bring uniformity and enforce discipline, inviting mute protests from students.
Magadh Mahila College, a leading college in Patna exclusively for girls, issued the order on Wednesday and announced strict enforcement of it from January.
College principal Shashi Sharma said the ban was necessary as the dresses worn by students were “embarrassing”. (Staff report)
