War on women.

Via Emirates 24/7:

Tribal elders and clerics in northwest Pakistan have barred women from shopping in bazaars without a male relative, elders and an official said on Saturday.

The decision was taken on Friday in the Karak district of conservative Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, which borders the restive tribal areas along the Afghan border.

“We have decided that women will not visit bazaars without a male relative,” Maulana Mirzaqeem, a cleric and tribal elder, told AFP by telephone.

“Those who will visit markets without male relatives will be handed over to police,” he said.

“They spread vulgarity and spoil men’s fasting in Ramadan,” Mirzaqeem said, adding that the ban would be publicised using local mosques loudspeakers.
