MULTAN: The Dera Ghazi Khan District Council has passed a resolution for imposing a ban on growing beard of various designs.

According to the resolution, shaping beards in fashionable styles (French cut, goatee) was inconsistent with the teachings of Islam and goes against the Sunnah.

The resolution demanded that Dera Ghazi Khan Deputy Commissioner should be directed to impose a ban on various designs of beard common among youth these days.

Terming the act against the Sunnah, the resolution called for strict action against those ‘who make fun of beard’. Asif Khosa, who tabled the resolution said that there was a dire need to create awareness about this Sunnah among the youth.

The resolution was passed by majority and sent to DG Khan Deputy Commissioner for further action.
