Who Should Let Women Know What to Wear? and Why?

Posted on the 03 October 2014 by M Shekhar @politicscope
This is not the first time. But, it's from an artiste and not a politician or a bureucrat. This time it is a legendary musician.
Noted singer KJ Yesudas landed in a controversy when he said women should not trouble others by wearing jeans, terming it goes against Indian culture.


“What should be covered must be covered. Our culture involves the beauty which should be covered. Women should not trouble others by wearing jeans. When they put on jeans, men are tempted to look beyond that (jeans).” - K J Yesudas, Singer

Dear Yesudas, so sad u feel 'troubled' & threatend by women's bodies. Y not cover yr eyes? Instead of asking women to cover themselves up!
