The general body of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has passed a proposal, by a female member of Shiv Sena, the Hindu nationalist political organisation, to ban the display of lingerie mannequins in store windows.

Representatives believe the ban will reduce the number of sexual assaults on women in the city, which has the second highest number of rapes in the country.

Ritu Tawade, who proposed the ban, said: “Mannequins displaying two-piece clothes or other lingerie are corrupting the minds of people and are against the morals of the society. This affects the mindset of men towards women and they see her as a commodity.”
