Girls in skimpy clothes to be denied entry in MP temple

Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh):

The management of a Jain temple here has asked visitors to ensure that girls aged above eight years are not dressed in skimpy clothing or in jeans, capri pants, gowns, and the like when they come to the temple.
Only girls and women “dressed decorously in line with Indian cultural norms with their head covered” would be granted entry into Shri Rushabh Dev temple in Chhagniram Pedhi in Kharakuan area in Ujjain district, the temple trust said.

A notice posted outside the temple “requests” the visitors to ensure that girls and women aged above eight years are dressed in a restrained manner.

The trust’s president Mahendra Sirolia on Sunday confirmed to reporters that the dress code for girls and women has been put into effect.
