Ripped Jeans all trending, all because Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat claimed that Indian women wearing ripped sets a bad example. While recounting an incident on a plane where a woman was seated beside him, he said, “She was sitting next to me so I spoke to her. She was wearing gumboots and her jeans were torn at the knees. She runs an NGO, her jeans are torn at the knees, she moves around in the society and kids are with her. What values will she give [to the children]?”
Here are 4 other reasons women should not be wearing ripped jeans.
1. It shows too much skin.
Ripped jeans are all about wearing jeans, while still showing an ample amount of skin. How dare a woman show skin to the outside world? Has she no shame? Women should never show this much skin, and should always wear full clothes, or better yet, wear a sari with a ghungat over their heads at all times. It’s for their protection only. How will men control themselves if women show too much skin? A woman wearing ripped jeans is basically “asking for it”.

2. It shows that a woman is willing to walk with less clothes.
A ripped jean is a symbol that women are willing to try everything to appear modern. If they roam around in ripped jeans, what’s next? Maybe they’ll get this absurd idea in their heads that they can do anything they want. Maybe they’ll try to protest, or even use their rights to do as they please. Tauba Tauba!

3. It’s a western idea.
Nothing should be more important to us than Indian sanskars. The same sanskars that blame a rape victim, blame everything on God, kill girls because they dare to be born, and burn women for dowry. But yeah, ripped jeans is the worst idea because it’s western and modern and does not fit in with the idea of a sanskari Indian society.

4. Ripped jeans today, what’s tomorrow?
Women will wear ripped jeans today, what will they do next? Drink, party with their friends, fall in love, get a higher education, decide to remain unmarried? Utterly unacceptable. This has to stop now.
