We welcome the decision to ban jeans and T-shirts in Government offices
This should be demanded by every devout Hindu organisation and devout Hindu.
In reality, Hindus should not need to demand this but the Government should voluntarily impose a dress code and earn the good wishes of Hindus.
Mumbai – The Government of Maharashtra has recently implemented a dress Code in all Government offices. Accordingly, officers and employees will no longer be allowed to wear jeans, T-shirts, brightly coloured or embroidered garments, as well as slippers. Only appropriate clothing is necessary.
Hindu Janajagruti Samiti (HJS) welcomes and congratulates this decision of the Government.
Some days ago, the Shri Saibaba Sansthan in Shirdi had made a practical appeal to dress in a manner befitting Indian culture and decency. Against this backdrop, we are demanding that all temples in Maharashtra implement a dress code in accordance with Indian culture and decency.
A letter has been sent by HJS to the Chief Minister Mr. Uddhav Thackeray in this context. The letter said that the implementation of the dress code in line with Indian culture will help maintain the sanctity and reverence towards temples. Indian textiles are more sattvik and civilized than the western ones.
Wearing Indian clothes will not only promote our culture but also awaken self-esteem in the younger generation. It will also give a boost to the traditional textile industry.
HJS has demanded that the State Government take initiative for this.
