Stop forcing students to be in formal wear

This petition had 22 supporters

Dress codes and restrictions in colleges are damaging to students in a lot of ways. Dress codes violate students' right to freedom of free speech and expression and a few other human rights.

Some dress restrictions may even cause potential damage to students' health, such as Hidradenitis suppurativa patients


Besides, this dress code violates human rights. Article 19 (1) (a) of the Indian Constitution demands freedom of speech and expression. Clothing is also a form of expression and dress codes and restrictions blatantly violate this law. It also violates Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which states, "Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers." Moreover, dress restrictions violate the Article 26 (2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well which states, "Education shall be directed to the full development of the human personality and to the strengthening of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It shall promote understanding, tolerance and friendship among all nations, racial or religious groups, and shall further the activities of the United Nations for the maintenance of peace." Full development of personality of a person cannot be achieved when the person cannot express his/her views

Every student conclude that collarless cotton t-shirts and plain jeans are the most efficient clothing for everyone

We are only demanding for wearing a plain tshirt and a jeans for our comfortable. We comfortable then comfortable with the work that we do
