“Women Should Not Be Allowed To Use Mobile Phones” Bihar Panchayat

Bihar Village panchayat has decided to impose heavy fines on women using mobile phones. They want to prohibit the usage of mobile phones amidst the females in the village.

The self-styled social reformers of Sunderbadi village panchayat in Kochadham block of Kishanganj district issued the orders on Sunday, banning women from using mobiles, a district official said.

“The villagers have issued an order to impose a fine of Rs.10,000 if a girl is found using a mobile phone, while a married woman will have to pay a fine of Rs.2,000 if found talking on a mobile outside her house,” the official said.

It is the first time that any panchayat has issued such a diktat. “There is no precedent to such an order issued by a Bihar village panchayat,” the official said.

Not only phones the panchayat has also ordered women not bathe at the road side.

“The decision was taken in a meeting attended by panchayat members and village elders,” Mohammad Manzoor Alam, who presided over the meeting, told IANS today.
Elder people in the  village are favouring the ban.
