Last Updated: May 6, 2016

India’s renowned singer and composer K.J Yesudas remarks on women wearing jeans have sparked a lot of criticism on social media.

Here’s the statement made by K.J Yesudas

“What should be covered must be covered. Our culture involves the beauty which should be covered. Women should not trouble others by wearing jeans. When they put on jeans, men are tempted to look beyond that (jeans). Women’s beauty lies in their modesty. They should not try to become like men. They should not force others to do unnecessary things by wearing jeans, which would give them magnetism”.
