The College of Arts in Kuwait has issued a circular imposing a dress code on students.

The circular urged students to commit to wearing decent clothes and banned short trousers, transparent clothes or any piece of garment bearing expressions, slogans, or mottos deemed inappropriate for the university campus, reported Al Qabas.

The college officials have also banned female students from wearing short skirts.

Philosophy teacher Dr. Shikha Al-Jassim said that the circular had been issued to please certain parties which seek to impose a law banning any mixing between boys and girls at the university.

She described the circular as “taken for granted” as all students already wear “decent clothes” at the university.

“All students, whether veiled or not, wear decent clothes”, she said, dismissing the circular as being both “useless and unacceptable”.

College of Arts Assistant Dean for Students’ Affairs Dr. Abdulla Al-Qatam said that the circular was in compliance with the university rules and regulations, adding that most students are committed to the decent dress code, except a few violators.

Some students opposed the circular, claiming that it prejudices their personal liberties, while other backed the move which, they said, aimed at protecting traditions and values.
