A social media user claims that leader of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz and Member of Provincial Assembly in Punjab Salma Sadia Taimoor formally submits a resolution. The resolution demands exemption for beauty parlors during the lock down.
Is Beauty Parlor Essential?
Until now, the exemption is applied for essential services only. The essential services include grocery and food items, medical supplies and pharmacies or banking services. All other services are temporarily under suspension due to the spread of corona virus.
However, with passage of this resolution, the beauty parlors may also become part of essential services. Thus, Women demand for exemption of beauty parlors during lock down in Pakistan may become reality.
It is yet unclear if men’s salons would also open along with women’s parlors and get consideration of essential services.

This post results in a debate on the irony for women to live in such a crisis. A number of users also question the applicability of law for men.
Ms. Taimoor claims “This sector gives a huge revenue in terms of taxes to the government, they [hairdressers and beauticians] should be allowed to do business after adopting precautionary measures amid coronavirus outbreak.”
