Peshawar: A grand Jirga held in Bajaur in the Pakistan province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) has decided against the liberty of women to visit the tourist spots with men in the area, media reports said.

The local elders in Tehseel Salarzai of Bajaur took this decision in a Jirga where representatives of all tribes were present, Samaa TV reported.

They announced that women will not be allowed to travel to any tourist place, even with men, it said.

The Jirga ruled that it was against their tribal values and traditions that women visit the recreational spots with men and requested the administration to respect their values.

They said that they could not allow promotion of ‘vulgarity” in the name of recreation while warning the administration to implement their decision by Sunday or else they would be compelled to do so on their own.
