Dress Code To Be Introduced To Religious Places

Dec 21, 2010 8:22:39 PM - thesundayleader.lk

The government is to take steps to introduce laws to impose a dress code to places of religious worship.

Cultural Affairs Minister T. B. Ekanayake has told the media that the government is considering the introduction of legislation to impose a dress code for visitors to places of religious worship.

The Minister has said that the lack of such laws has made people visit places of religious worship dressed inappropriately.

According to Ekanayake, persons dressed inappropriately are provided with white cloths to cover themselves at certain places of religious worship.

However, he added that the dress code would be made public when the new laws come into place.
