Governments often do these kind of things, so as to divert the minds of the mango people from the real issues at hand ! Moral policing works because people are misled by acts such as these. We cant really blame the govt. Govt know that majority of the people like these kind of acts, and hence they do it.

Having said that, let me split the question itself. My first point will be regarding freedom. A person should have freedome of choice. Freedom to wear any kind of clothing (as long as it is within the limits of propriety) should be a basic right. It was not worded into the constituion because it is so basic, that its taken for granted. When the french government had banned the burqa, i had specifically mentioned that they may ban dhotis, and then all clothing. Here's proof

Now the government has partially banned one particular type of very decent clothing. QSS, you ...more

I would quite agree to the govt's decision...; the dress code of the teachers shd certainly be different from the one used by the students......., or else, there wouldn't exist any mark of difference between the students and the teachers.......; besides, a dignified dress adds to the personality of a person....and for a teacher surely a saree would better suit her dignity than a pair of salwar kurta, in an educational institution........; (this is my personal opinion)......

nevertheless, do i say that salwar kurta is cheap dress in general.........

THERE SHOULD BE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A FACULTY AND A STUDENT IN BLOODY COLLEGES DAMNIT! I have taken up consulting service 4 some town level colleges in my vicinity and one of my core objectives is to bridge that student-faculty gap. I'd rather that students look up to faculty as a senior comrade rather than some sort of a boss.

Faculty is someone who has more experience who guides the student thru his or her EDUCATION.

Heh, prof's look more seductive in sarees anyway hardy har.

What kind of democracy is it? But they do have a point. Famales are very weight conscious these days. They do look young for a longer time. But the decision is a loss of freedom. How about dress code for teachers or students.
