The Hisbah Board in Kano State has banned the use of mannequins to display clothes by tailors, supermarkets and boutique owners in the state.
Hisbah Commander-in-Chief, Ustaz Harun Muhammad Sani Ibn Sina, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday.
Ibn Sina said the use of mannequins by tailors, boutique owners and others breaches the provision of Islamic injunctions.
He added that the agency would enlighten them on how Islam frowns on the use of mannequins and send its officials to apprehend and prosecute offenders.
The statement read, “Hisbah prohibits the use of mannequins at shops, commercial and private residences and other public places. This violates Islamic provisions, it is also responsible for immoral thoughts among some members of the public, all these are against Islam.
“We have divided Kano into five areas for the monitoring and implementation of the ban across the state.”
