    AstroLTTE,,,,

    I might not have put my point clearly,,,,, earlier, there were only sinhalese women MPs,,,, nowadays, we see Muslim/Tamil...etc..... so, they also have to comply with their traditional & culture dress.... so the dresscode can be adjusted little...... MPs can wear the national, western dress, trousher-shirt...etc,,,so women also should be given options (one condition, formal respectful dress which doesn`t be violating ethics...etc)

    any elected MP should respect parliament, no doubt about it,,,,, not only TNA, senior politicians in major parities even don`t respcet the parliament or the constitution in many ways,,,,,,

    [so the dress code can be adjusted little...... ]

    what is the national/traditional dress of Muslims?

    I`m sure its not a salwar Kameez

    Sri Lanka is a Sinhalese Buddhist Country and not a multicultural Country.

    anybody who wants to engage in government affairs has to practice the accepted standard Dress Code with minor adjustments.

    Eg - Mrs Ashroff with Saree and the Veil.

    That is how things should be.

    Salwar Kameez is not a standard dress in Sri Lanka.

    Amigo

    yes it is not Shalwar Kameez...... widely Saree is used among eld/middle aged woman, Pakistani type kit among girls,,, but the Abaya is replacing them gradually....

    I`m not defending Salvar Kameez,,,, but, they should have some flexible options like what men have in the parliament.....

    [Eg - Mrs Ashroff with Saree and the Veil. ]

    you forgot, Anjan Umma was wearing Abaya & Skarf......

    if Anjan Umma was allowed to wear Abaya, I think the problem was with Shalwar Kameez,,,, might not be appropriate....

    [Sri Lanka is a Sinhalese Buddhist Country and not a multicultural Country. ]

    Puta,,,, don`t try to create other bloodsheds again and again in the country with this attitude..... we have just got enough of one.....

    yeah.. I agree with Ramz

    Sri Lanka is a country with a buddhist majority (thats true), but let us not highlight it all the time

    let all races live happily without any lables

    SWRD & later JRJ made mistakes and caused all the harm,,,, should not be repeated,,,,,

    [SWRD & later JRJ made mistakes and caused all the harm,,,, should not be repeated,,,,, ]

    true..

    as far as we civilians have the harmony among us, politics cannot make issues

    thats why I say, it all should start from us INDIVIDUALLY

    there is nothing wrong in wearing Salwar Kameez. It is socilly accepted dress

    [there is nothing wrong in wearing Salwar Kameez. It is socilly accepted dress]

    since Anjan umma was wearing Abaya and there was no issue,,, there should be something behind this,,,, maybe the Salwar Kameez here was a new fashion, a sexy one..heheheheheh and MPs can`t focus on the agenda with such dress...heheheheheh
