Moral Police..how immoral!!

Yeah Slap her hard, kick her, punch her on the face, rip her clothes, lift her skirt..

Such was the scene inside the amnesia pub in Mangalore when a gang of hooligans attacked the ladies present there...The ladies were beaten , their hair pulled, thrown on the grown n Sexually molested..All this done in the name of religion and culture, for the hooligans called themselves "Sri Ram Sene"
The so called guards of the Indian culture acted like the worst kind of degenerates..What Indian culture permits the harassment of women? Which religion gives them the privilege of beating young girls? According to the myth the Sri Ram Sena consisted of monkeys who fought like true warriors for saving a woman abducted by the demon king. But the modern day sena though consisting of men acted like wild beasts in a jungle disgracing the Ram-naam..
What are they trying to proveby this sick , disgusting, shameful and brutal display of power? Perhaps trying to glorify the "rich Indian culture" and "sanatan dharma"..
Few days back i read in the papers about Swat, the taliban captured area of Pakistan where the militants have issued an order that no woman shall have any right in the society and live like slaves. The women were told not to come out of their houses..if they do they should be accompanied by their husbands and always be clad in their burkha. The girls' schools were bombed and several girls were molested.
The current incident in Mangalore mirrors this attitude.

As if all this was not enough , even the Karnataka Government supportes the hooligans and said that their objective was right though the methos "may be" wrong..Due to increasing public pressure 27 out of the 40 goons were arrested and were granted bail the very next day..well democratic India...
The media persons were equallyas guilty of the crime as the perpetrators, they knew that the incident was going to take place so instead of informing the police they comfortably reached the place 15 mins prior to the sene and set up their cameras at the right places. Even while the girls were being molested they were busy filming this and did nothing to stop this brutality..

Who is responsible for such sadistic , uncivilised, unethical display of behaviour? the government? the narrow mindset? or lack of proper education?

Proper steps are needed to be taken to stop such incidents in future. The governments, the police and the law courts must act now so that future talibisation of India could be prevented...

I completely agree with you.. I was ashamed that something like this happened in my country. At first I used to be thankful that India doesn't treat women the way Pakistan, Afghanistan do, but now I am not so sure
