Wearing lipstick could cost female students at the University of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Rs 100. 

According to a notification issued by the university management, “Female students are not allowed to put on lipstick. If seen, they will be fined Rs100 on the spot”.

After the ban, students took to social media to protest against it.



As per reports, the notification was limited to the Institute of Education Department and was issued as a part of the department’s “dress code policy”.

However, the decision was taken back on Monday. A notification regarding this has already been issued and copies of it have been dispersed on-campus.  

Last year in November, the university had instructed female students to wear abayas on campus.
