A minister in the Indian state of Goa has warned women against wearing bikinis on beaches or visiting bars wearing short skirts, saying it is against Indian culture.Frankly, I'm scratching Goa from my list of potential vacation destinations.
Sudin Dhavalikar, Goa's public works department minister, linked bikinis to sexual crimes and called for a ban.
"We should not allow girls with bikinis to enter public places because it is very difficult to control people who arrive in Goa from different states. By the time the victim reaches the police it is too late. It is better to control such type of activities on the beaches," he said.
Dhavalikar also said women should not visit bars in short skirts.
