The dancing girls of Lahore, the cultural capital of Pakistan, are on strike in protest against the tide of Talibanisation that is threatening to destroy Mujra, an art form that has flourished since the Mughal empire.

The strike, which is supported by the theatres where they perform, was sparked by the decision of Lahore High Court last month to ban the Mujra, the graceful and elaborate dance first developed in the Mughal courts 400 years ago, on the grounds that it is too sexually explicit.

In the face of the strike and the lack of enthusiasm for alternative entertainment, the court has suspended its ban. It has, however, ordered dancers to cover their necks with shawls and wear shoes (they used to dance barefoot but the court deemed that too erotic). "Do they expect girls to dance in a burkha?" asks stage manager Jalal Mehmoud. "Mujra has been going on for so many years it is part of our culture." Big smile
.....remember they also ban womens to go school/coll or work'and they order all girls in pakistan should marry only taliban mans.
peshawar is one example of this'where girls rarely see on streets..

arey mujra hojaye ise baat peh lol ...
inhe logoh neh.... oye hoye ....inhe logo neh chinleyah muzra merah Dancing
