UP governor issues notice to prominent Lucknow club for not allowing entry to a Shia cleric over the dress code

Lucknow, Sep 13 - Uttar Pradesh governor Ram Naik has taken strong exception on denying entry to eminent Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Sadiq due to dress code during a functioning inside the Army controlled Mahomed Bagh(MB) club here yesterday evening.

"The governor has taken the issue seriously and has issued a notice to the club asking its secretary to clarify its stand within 24 hours.

Besides, the governor has also sought the rules of the dress code of the club," a Rajbhawan sources here today said.

The maulana Kalbe Sadiq had gone to the club yesterday evening to attend as a guest during an award function for cancer patients organised by the Akshansha Samiti and Eshwar Foundation but was not allowed inside as he was not wearing clothes as per the club's dress code.

The governor said now allowing a person in the club wearing traditional clothes is unfortunate.
