UTTAR PRADESH, INDIA, December 17, 2000: Chief Minister Rajnath Singh's decision to ban beauty contests has caused heated debates among opposition parties and BJP allies. Comments range from total agreement by Muslim organizations and religious leaders, to total disagreement by a female opposition leader who described the ban as an attack on the fundamental rights of women. Middle roaders oppose the ban but support limitations on the beauty contests. Keeping a firm stand, Rajnath Singh is quoted as saying, "I would not allow beauty contests to be organized in the state at any cost."
