Pakistan’s Federal Directorate of Education (FDE) has issued a notification prohibiting female teachers from wearing jeans and tights. The same notification goes on to prohibit male teachers from wearing jeans and t-shirts.
A letter in this demand is been sent to Principals of schools and colleges by FDE. The letter asked principals to make sure that each staff “observes reasonably good measures in their physical appearance and personal hygiene”. It even has instructions such as a regular haircut, beard trimming, nail cutting, shower and use of deodorant or perfume.
