Unusual things banned in world but not in India!

We live in a crazy world, each day passes and we somehow manage to show that we are getting more and more crazier. This post is dedicated to the global craziness many countries have shown by banning stupid daily things. The list includes SAMOSAS to bubble gums, such things which are highly common in Indian households. Let’s take a look on such things!




Samosas are banned in Somalia, all thanks to the Jihadist terrorist group. These samosa haters enforced the ban in the areas they control by claiming the food was “too Christian”.

When Centre for Science and Environment examined 12 branded honey products that were sold in India, including those made by companies like Dabur, Himalaya, Patanjali, Baidyanath, Khadi and two foreign organisations based out of Switzerland and Australia, scientists found high levels of six harmful antibiotics in 11 samples.


The Iranian government issued a list of appropriate male hairstyles in 2010, which prohibited ponytails, mullets, and hair that was too spiky.



Singapore prohibits the sale and import of chewing gum, which makes it impossible for locals to get their hands on gum. However, exceptions are made for people who have medical conditions and need to chew gum. The ban began in 1992 and is still in effect.


Wearing yellow clothing was banned in Malaysia in 2011 because the government was at odds with a group of activists who wore the hue while protesting electoral laws.
