Undersigned by an outfit called Lashker-e-Jabbar, circulars have appeared in a Degree College in Rajouri town, directing women to wear burqas and men to wear caps and grow beards in keeping with Islamic traditions.
The Muslim women have also been asked to desist from going to schools and colleges, have a male escort while going out of the house and sit separately from men in buses, police sources said here today.
The outfit has also asked the men to wear a cap and sport beards, they said, adding that it had warned the people against defying their diktats.
