what is pardha partha?

1 Answer(s)


Purdah or pardah (from Persian : پرده, meaning "curtain") is a religious and social practice of female seclusion prevalent among some Muslim communities in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It is also observed by Rajput clans of India and Pakistan as a social practice regardless of religion. More simply, it is the practice of preventing men from seeing women. This takes two forms: physical segregation of the sexes and the requirement that women cover their bodies so as to cover their skin and conceal their form.
