With hundreds of tourists currently visiting the Valley,Jamaat-e-Islami,a religious group,has asked them to follow a proper dress code. It has also asked the state’s tourism department to enforce the decision.

The statement issued by party leader Advocate Zahid Ali said some tourists,mostly foreigners,were seen walking about in mini-skirts and other objectionable dresses,which was against local ethos and culture. “Kashmiris cannot for the sake of their economy give up their divine values at any cost. We need no such guests who can become a cause of derailing society from the right track and spread immorality and immodesty in the name of tourism,” said the statement.

The religious group has asked officials of the tourism department to take appropriate steps and advise tourists to respect local culture.

“This is cultural aggression and there are elements who,in the garb of promoting tourism,are promoting vulgarity,alcoholism,drug trafficking and other immoral activities,” the statement added.
