After issuing a statement pertaining to the "dress code" for girls, All India Hindu Mahasabha on Sunday again released a controversial statement saying that girls should not cover their faces while driving on the roads because miscreants might use same tactic to hide themselves.

Dharam Pal Siwach, vice-president of Haryana unit of All India Hindu Mahasabha, while addressing mediapersons here on Sunday said, "Girls are seen with their heads and faces covered completely that even their family members cannot recognise them. We have rightly demanded ban on cell phones for school boys and girls and shall meet the education minister to seek ban on allowing mobile phones in schools. The parents who have given cell phones to their wards should check the same daily before they go to bed in order to keep vigil on their contacts and their purpose of talk."

The executive body of the state unit of Hindu Mahasabha also resolved to meet khap leaders, the education minister and leading NGOs to persuade the girls against wearing short dresses. Ramesh Pannu, state president, presided over the meeting.
