Aligarh mayor Shakuntala Bharati and MLA, Sanjeev Raja, speaking at an event at Uday Singh Inter College at Barah Dwari, said young girls did not need mobile phones and they should be prohibited from possessing the devices. The BJP leaders went on to claim that excessive use of mobile phones was one of the reasons why “Aligarh girls were going in the wrong direction”.

Bharti and Raja, also raised objections about girls covering their faces while travelling in scooters and walking on the street. “What is the need for girls to cover their faces,” Bharti said, adding that parents should ensure that their daughters refrain from such acts.

Raja also advised parents not to give mobile phones to their daughters, as it was not needed.

“They have to go to school and then back home so what is the need of a mobile phone.” 

The issue of ban on mobile phones for girls was raised by the MLA and the mayor seconded it while addressing the gathering.

Mayor Bharati is not new to such controversies.

Last year she had forced the shutdown of the canteen in Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) accusing it of selling beef.

By her own admission she has two goals in life, – protect cows from being slaughtered and protect Hindu girls from ‘love jihad’.
