The chief minister says “Attacking women-this is not part of our culture…if required, the government will invoke Goonda Act”. And while this is welcome indeed, it remains to be seen if the government will follow through on this promise. In the meanwhile, there seem to be some disturbing trends emerging here as we had the chief minister also saying “We will not allow pub culture in Karnataka”
Toeing the right-wing group Sri Ram Sene Pramod Muthalik’s line, Karnataka chief minister B S Yeddyurappa has said that pub culture is wrong and should not be permitted. Yeddyurappa said that this (pub culture) was not a part of our culture and it led to unfortunate incidents like the one in Mangalore.
Makes one wonder which side of the divide is he really on…
On a lighter note, will we get to relive the glorious days of Khajuraho and Kamasutra? Well, they are also part of the culture, or aren’t they?
