The Maharashtra government has been forced to re-allow dance bars in the state, after the Supreme Court allowed them to be run in a ruling last year. But the state government is bent on making life very difficult for the dance bars.
A draft law says that ‘obscene’ dancing will not be allowed. Obscene is being defined as that which arouses ‘sexual feelings’ in spectators. Also, dancers who are ‘half-clothed’ will not be allowed.
But pray who is going to decide what arouses ‘sexual feelings’ in spectators and what constitutes ‘half-clothed’?
