Hey Guys, Leave Your Designer Jeans At Home When You Visit Pakistan....Ya Hear?

The Pakistani Taliban have decided to spread the warnings ...meaning that for the first time they aren't just threatening women as they have also warned men in Pakistan that they best not be wearing any of those tight fitting jeans or tight shirts or anything of thin fabric.

In other words, dress like the Taliban.  And don't forget it.

The story comes from Times of India.

Pakistani Taliban ban tight and thin clothes during Ramzan

PESHAWAR: A Pakistani Taliban group on Saturday banned the use of "tight or thin" clothes both for men and women in the holy month of Ramzan and warned of one month imprisonment for not fasting.

The Ramzan code of conduct guidelines was issued in a pamphlet after the Mullah Nazir Taliban Group held a shura meeting in Wana headquarters of South Waziristan Agency.

Tight or thin clothes have been banned for both men and women during the holy month, the pamphlet stated.

"We warn the shopkeepers and tailors with severe punishments (for violating the rule). Fine up to Rs 50,000 would be imposed on those found guilty," the pamphlet read.

It was also declared by the extremists that anyone found not fasting during Ramzan would be imprisoned for the entire month. The militants also outlawed the selling of articles of fireworks during the month.

Taliban said that the code of conduct was endorsed by the central shura in a special meeting.

Mullah Nazir group is a pro-Pakistan militants outfit or the so-called "good Taliban", as they only fight the western troops in Afghanistan. Their founding leader Mullah Nazir was killed in US drone attack in January 2013.
