A northern Indian city has banned women from using cell phones,so they cannot have affairs.
To be caught with a cell phone incurs huge fines .
Married women's fines are much less than single women ,which makes no sense to me,unless they still do arranged marriages,which is quite possible .

Women need to stop this 'equal rights' thing. Cray-cray. :rolleyes:

Also, would like to add, I do like how it's 'women' or 'cell phones' that are the cause of affairs... not the men.

I always have my face buried in my cell phone nowadays. Anyone I end up dating? They're gonna think I'm always busy with like eighty other people.

If we were in the 14th century, they would burn all of the women of that city. No substantial progress has been made since then. Maybe we should become really progressive?

Obviously.  It's a scientific fact that men don't have affairs, they just have sex.  It's losing thier women's hearts that these guys are afraid of.  See, now this whole thing is a beautiful feel good story. :wub:

You don't need a cell phone for an affair just a good bar.

Sensational news but not that real.  First thing, the so called 'ban' is not imposed by any government/administration etc as the impression is, but just a decision taken by some muslims in a backward village and not a city.  This decision does not have any legal backing.  Any woman slapped with such a 'fine' can threaten these jokers with a police complaint.  And it is not north but eastern part of India. Simbi quoted a paper in UK, that paper quoted another one from India and both these newspapers presented the facts in a sensational way to suit their sales.

It's India ,they're Hindu ,not Muslim .I've never heard of Muslims in India ....
Indians don't usually do this to such a drastic degree .
And in small villages,the elders are the law .

Here is a very non sensational article from Nov 24 ,by an American news agency .

They are muslims, not hindu.  Your second statement is strange.  India has the second largest muslim population in the world.  Sounds strange, but true.
And Indians do the drastic things, believe me.
I am from India.

Your second news is different from first one regarding place and group of people, but again, as I said earlier, this so called 'council' is nothing but a kind of pressure group which has no power.  And elders are not that much influential these days.  Anybody who is educated can drag them to courts which are happy to make them realise the powers of law.

I don't know any Muslim Indians . I've never heard of it before is the thing . So its odd to me ,and the article says this group is Hindu ...so... I'm going by what the article is saying .
