Re: self-appointed moral police on young women having lunch in a pub at Mangalore, Karnataka
The way the girls were beaten up is highly objectionable and condemnable. Elements like Pramod Muthalik should be hanged in full public view. These people do not deserve to live in a society. If Muthalik's blood was bubbling so much with Hindutva valor, he should have gone into the Taj Hotel and eliminated the terrorists there on November 26. By mercilessly beating up young girls in a pub, what heroic act he is performing? I could not see anything wrong in the dresses the girls were wearing. And dancing and singing cannot not be a sin. If it is, then the Kannada movies be first banned, which is going vulgar and vulgar everyday. TV images clearly showed that the girls were not like the images of Khajuraho and Belur temples but were covered from top to bottom.
The perpetrators of Mangalore incident should be stopped from misusing Hindu and Hindutva. If Hindutva means beating girls mercilessly, then such dogma should be denounced by one and all and persons defining it in such a way should be given a mighty kick on their butts with nail-shoes.
The issue, as I know, was neither about Hindutva nor vulgarity. It was all about 'Vasooli'- Extortion. I learnt that the goons were the puppets of some politicians within BJP who wanted to target the CM Yeddyurappa and home minister VS Acharya, who comes from Mangalore.
