Implement the dress code is in accordance with the Indian culture in all the temples in Maharashtra – Hindu Janajagruti Samiti
The Government of Maharashtra has recently implemented the dress Code in all Government offices in the State. Accordingly, officers and employees will no longer be allowed to wear jeans, T-shirts, brightly coloured or embroidered garments, as well as sleepers. Only appropriate clothing is necessary. We welcome and congratulate this decision of the Government. A few 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 should implement a dress code in accordance with Indian culture and decency.
On behalf of the Samiti, a letter has been sent to the Chief Minister Mr. Uddhav Thackeray in this context. The letter further said that the implementation of the dress code in line with Indian culture would help maintain the sanctity and reverence of the temple. Indian textiles are more sattvic and civilized than Western ones. Also, 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. The Hindu Janajagruti Samiti has demanded that the State Government should take initiative for this.
