The Sunderbari council in the eastern Indian state of Bihar claims the phones were "debasing the social atmosphere" by encouraging elopement.
In addition to the ban, the Sunderbari village council in a Muslim-dominated area 400km east of Patna, the capital of Bihar, has also imposed a fine of 10,000 rupees (€140) if a girl is caught using a mobile phone on the streets.
Married women would have to pay 2,000 rupees.

Last week we had reports of Indian women being arrested for posting completely inoffensive and legitimate commentary on Facebook. Now a ban on women using phones. Is Indian society trying to shut women up altogether?

Of course, it makes perfect sense equating an islamic local government, in a nation that is majority Hindu, with the entire Indian race.

In the same way everyone in the 26 counties is Protestant, and loyalist.

Eh, no.

If you read the report, you'll see the women in this region are not remotely connected with her; neither by culture nor religion. India is a big place, ruserious, with lots of people. If you don't like the thread or are too educationally ill equipped to participate, by all means leave

Who made any such equation? Who said "entire Indian race"? I wish people would read the feckin thing. Also, the plight of the two Hindi women arrested for posting on facebook was ignored by the mainly Hindi Congress.

India is not noted for its liberalism or fair play for minorities. As for the Equality agenda - that has no place in the home of the Caste system.
