So finally the Supreme Court has lifted the ban on Mumbai dance bar.
These dancers usually dance in restaurants, bars and hotels.
The state government first banned dance bars in 2005, saying they “corrupted young people and were a front for crime and prostitution”.
Before the ban, more than 100,000 women were employed in some 1,400 dance bars in the state.
Dancers would dance to Bollywood numbers and clients often throw money at them.
Bar owners protested heavily against the decision and challenged it in court.
Some bar girls started dancing at mujras to make their living.
Many started working in brothels. Some started to entertain customers in private parties where they also offer sexual favours.
They became easily target of pimps, who would sale them in foreign country as these girls didn’t have any job. Most of girls are illiterate.
Finally Supreme Court gave verdict in their favors which will restore the lives of many dancers.
