An FIR has been filed on Saturday against the music legend KJ Yesudas on his,  women wearing jeans remarks.
On Thursday sparking a controversy, Yesudas resented women wearing jeans, saying this went against Indian culture.
“Women should not cause trouble to others by wearing jeans. What should be covered should be covered,” Yesudas said at a function organised by a voluntary organisation in connection with the Gandhi Jayanti celebrations.
The 74-year-old singer said this kind of dress went against Indian culture which valued simplicity and amiability as the greatest qualities of women.
Taking exception to the singer’s comment, Mahila Congress activists took out a protest march in the city.
Yesudas came for scathing criticism in social networking sites. Many described him senile. Some advised him to set his house in order first. They apparently wanted him to ensure that his daughters-in-law followed his dress code.
