After all that hooliganism in a M'lore pub and the public outrage it raised across the nation, Pramod Mutalik, Chief of the Sri Rama Sene still has the guts to tell media that
'We' will not allow celebration of Valentine's Day in any form in the State.
Hello, WHO does he think he is?
He said he would submit memorandums to the CM, Home Minister and the Governor asking them to stop observance of the day.
Because Valentine's Day was not part of Indian culture.
So entertaining a feeling of love and friendship towards your fellow human being is against Indian Culture, but attacking and insulting them is?

The SRS State Convenor Gangadhar Kulkarni goes on record to say "if people celebrate the day despite our warning, then we will definitely attack them".

Isn't it rather pathetic that this is all the respect some sections of society have for our police and the law and order system?

Mutalik wonders if the parents of today's youngsters approve the culture their kids are following. I wonder if Mutalik thinks his parents are proud of their son?

Why on earth does India have this increasing incidence of jobless people laying down the law about how other people should live their lives? A Thackeray duo in Mumbai was bad enough, now this!

Why are the authorities standing and watching us becoming a nation of intolerant people? But then, with a CM who says that he 'will not allow the growth of pub culture' in Karnataka, what else can you expect?

On second thoughts, A very happy Valentine's Day to you, Mutalik. May the spirit of St. Valentine make you realise your follies.

This is nothing to do with Valentine, culture or religion. It is plain old village thug, the "jiski laathi uski bhains" thing all over again. Fear is the key and these guys really know how to turn it to open all locks.

Shame on the impotent cops that stand by while women are thrashed and thrown across the room by their "protective brothers".

Bhais is more like it.

Horrid times these. Sometimes so scary too! I hope good sense prevails and like you said may the spirit of love flow to the insides of these loveless creatures and make them human!
