Petition:The Authorities should take a strict action against them.To teach them a lesson for a lifetime. Violence is not the solution for anything.And we dont need to learn about women ethics from those who themselves are not aware of even humanity.Behaving like animals and talking about our spiritual customs , its totally absurd. Instead of trying to correct others they should focus on themselves and start from their family first. This kind of cruel behavious towards women should not be entertained and i really hope that someone out there in the Higher Authorities is still working on this issue to make Women prosper here in India with freedom and dignity.

Petition:Pubbing or celebrating the Valentine's is the expression of the same democratic principles that make each of us a free citizen and that a modern day democracy can be proud of. The manifestations of our freedom being labelled as Westernization of the pure Indian soul is just another bullish attempt at maligning the image of Indian culture and creating internal rifts too.If only the elected leaders of our country can take some time out of their busy schedules and do some governance too. It takes a lot of time and effort for a country to surge ahead, please don't take us so back so soon.

Petition:I am a 22 year old who has never been to a pub but I fail to understand the mentality of these so called 'protectors of our society'. There is absolutely no leadership in these people who call themselves as 'leaders'. The first rule of leadership is lead by example. Before pointing out fingers at others have you corrected a simple thing of teaching discipline in your organisation? When you agree that the manner of the protest was wrong then please correct yourself first before talking about others. One needs to introspect whether he has been a perfect example for the people. My dear 'activists' understand one simple fact about human psychology you need to inspire your countrymen, dictatorship will not unite but break people. Please focus on much more urgent and important issues in our country. Even today you will find child marriages, torcher on women, dowry system, untouchabilty etc. in our society(And people are forced to follow this atleast nobody is forced to go to the pub). Shri Ram never forced anyone to follow him, he just did what he believed in, people followed automatically. Thats leadership my dear friends. When the question of western culture and indian culture comes, unfortunately it has won over our Indian culture because people have chosen it willingly. Nothing was forced. But by telling this I no where mean to degrade our culture. Not being biased I (Likewise every Indian) believe that Indian culture is the greatest of all. But highlight its greatness rather than enforcing it. Our culture needs to be spread amongst the people.

Petition:The attitude of all people and parties involved is shocking and reeks of hypocrisy and an archaic attitude towards women. Indian culture has always been a progressive one and therefore the Indian civilization has survived transitions across ages.. Today's so called moral police is just looking for opportunities to prevent change and evolution of the Indian society which will only damage the Indian culture in the long run.. We should not get swayed by the regressive ideas they are trying to sow in the minds of all Indians and should raise our voice against them to tell them that we are living in a free democracy and will not be dictated by the whims and fancies of a few regressive people..

Petition:Hi, 1) Where are the so called 'moral policemen when women/girls are getting raped or eve-teased or molested? 2) Pub culture is not Indian culture, fine. But, is beating people up, especially WOMEN, Indian culture? 3) Even if women/girls are dancing nude or semi-nude or in any obscene way INSIDE the pubs, nobody from the OUTSIDE can see them dancing, can they?? This is equivalent to married people being intimate with each other within a house and not in front of everyone. Of course, it can be argued that married ones are different, but, even in pubs, couples who are in love with each other dance with each other! What's their(so called 'moral' policemen) problems? 4) Smoking/Drinking etc TOO are against Indian culture. Why is it that i find ALL the sena activists drinking/smoking/chewing tobacco and spitting on the streets all along their way?? 5) Formal Shirts/Pants are DEFINITELY NOT Indian culture. Whey wear them then? 6) Working for foreign companies is not good for Indian culture and in NO foreign company is Indian culture being followed, ban all the foreign companies and let everyone be jobless and unemployed! There are 50 more things i can come up with and argue about, but i am not so jobless as the sena activists. If people want to enjoy, let them enjoy. If you dont want your kids to enjoy that way, then dont let them. Leave others alone. It is a 'democratic' country and like muthalik can voice his opinions out, similarly those who want to enjoy and freak out, CAN do so!!! P.S: PLEASE send this to the chief minister and MAKE SURE he READS and UNDERSTANDS what i am trying to tell, especially the last line!

Petition:SO ARE WE REALLY FREE? The Mangalore pub attack is extremely outrageous and sends pangs to the hearts of many women all over India.Mahatma Phule may have turned in his grave,little would he have predicted such an incident to happen years after he initiated education of the girl child.Living in a 'globalized' world,we speak of 'a modern fast growing economy'which India is,we speak of how India is no longer an developing nation but already a developed one,of how India stands at the threshold of pushing the world economy when other countries are fighting recession. But isn't this growth just useless when we as 'individuals' are not developing but becoming more and more inhuman?Not to forget intolerant and violent? The country seems to be advancing financially,but as people,we are a 'pitiable species'. If women going to pubs isn't part of Indian culture,then maybe thrashing them is,taking advantage of them on New Year's is.And let me tell you,it has nothing got to do with skimpy clothing.Statistics show how in most rape cases women were wearing 'Punjabi dresses'.No sir,it's not the clothing,it the mindset that even as India develops,it's women should be confined to the 'chulha'.And this is surprising as India itself boasts of women having climbed mountains,driven airplanes and even become the PM.Such hypocrisy is intolerable. Doesn't our Constitution speak of equality of sexes or even human rights? And this sir,is not just exploitation of women alone,but exploitation of human rights.And such perpetrators of the law should be caught and punished. Also,such a mindset which breeds violence,hatred and a complete disrespect for women needs to be shunned at it's very source.Without it not only will we lose respect for ourselves,but we can hardly call ourselves a 'FREE INDIA'

Petition:We in India have some 60 years ago voiced our collective voice and concerted action for FREEDOM in democracy and chose to elect our reps via ballot and not be forced on local warlords and their whims & fancies like in feudal India and other countries. We have become more mature and been through rough and trying times including "Emergency" etc and still chose this path. This I feel is the way and direction of India. So far the vocalised minority have not been elected in any capacity and we will go by the RULE OF LAW and the Spirit of the Law to reach a different changing face of India of the New generation who has to take it from there onwards. This is what we will leave them. We hope that it is better than when our parents left it to us. WE will not sacrifice our Freedom but choose to be cautious and prudent in dealing with our youth and DO NOT FORGET we have created and shaped them so far- whatever it be. We must stand up for the rights of all and with discernment not to allow abuse of any kind or might to dominate and abuse any as our prized CONSTITUTION has laid out our cause for this to be maintained. May GOD of truth whom all seem to look up to and worship assist us in this major and life long struggle. Let not the God of money and blind power win for all our good. Let us not Talibanise India but keep a good balance on our Indian values also for the sake of our great nation.

Petition:In a Democratic society like ours, as long as we are not doing any harm to others, it's within our rights to do whatever we want to. He just said it in a very bad and ill-mannered way but this is a view that majority of us endorses as well. The morons who commit such heinous acts in the name of 'moral policing' should be punished severely. The fact of the matter is, there is a particular set of people who support such heinous acts like the ones happened in Mangalore. Some politicians supporting this kind of 'moral policing' can't just digest the fact that today's youth is exposed to a much more affluent and luxurious lifestyle than they could have imagined in their youths. It's just sheer jealousy, nothing else. Also, there are some people in this country who don't have access to pubs, good restaurants, grand lifestyle, and most importantly "company of female friends" ... even though they fantasize, desire and dream about having these. But because of their lowliness and lack of character, they don't get these. Hence, they hurt those who have the privilege of having these. It boils down to the story of the HAVEs and HAVE-NOTs again. The HAVE-NOTs are always jealous of the HAVEs and they always try to hurt/abuse them. All this talk about "Indian Culture" is total rubbish. Raping foreign tourists and killing them is Indian Culture. Burning Christian Missionaries alive along with their families and children is Indian Culture. Burning churches is Indian Culture. Banning women from entering certain temples is Indian Culture. But having a nice evening out with friends in a pub is AGAINST Indian Culture. People who endorse such views and acts should be shot/ hanged publicly.

Petition:It is only in India that we are fighting in the name of so called culture . We want to oppress our own women in homes and watch FTV and oogle and rape every woman possible. Why not men learn to first drink responsibly. And if drinking is such a big problem then why not stop selling Cigarettes and alcohol altogether. And why is it only for women that we have all these rules or is it that you medical science tells that alcohol reacts differently to women. The truth is all these politicians use jobless youth by giving them money to create issues out of nothing and trouble educated and responsible people. next time someone does this to you beat them black and blue then and there so much so that no one ever dares to touch any other woman again. Stop all this nonsense about Indian culture and ethos and first think about the economy that is going to dogs.

Petition:This incident happened to get noticed by these useless guys in the name of God. People who speak about culture never look at their back yard, I request political parties not to make this as election point. Women must be treated in a proper manner in public. Law should be passed if people harass others for their benefit but be shot from behind to show the world they are cowards. Liberty should be given but people must know the limits what is right and what is wrong. Parents need to control things, not goondas. Ban all religious outfits. Police need to act fast. Total system is corrupt, we need emergency which will change things. Law created 1947, is very old, we need change. It is becoming very frustrating where to live in my home country.

Petition:Indian women except in certain community enjoy all the freedom in India . There are sporadic incidences happening in our country for which do not blame a Party, Religion and not politicize the issue. Attack against women is a matter of concern and to a great extent only women themselves can solve it with a courageous mind. The saddest part is that the media is biased making the matters worse by giving distorted news and certain news are telecasted giving extra mileage. Women should show more courage like Mam Nalini Netto in Kerala. One can understand how grave the situation is, even a senior IAS officerís case of sexual assualt by a Minister (took place in 1999) is still pending in the Court of Law even after many years and she didnít get justice till date. Another case of molesting Lakhmi Gopakumar, a T V anchor by a former Kerala minister is hanging around in courts. ( took place in 2006). So justice is delayed and justice is being denied to women. It is a fact that women were being mindlessly victimized in every part of our country. Many women who are trapped by Sex racket, and cheated by lovers end up their lives and the real culprits escape because there is no evidence against these unscrupulous people of the society. For the sufferings of Indian women and female kids who are being sold and forced to do sex work, and who fell in the trap, I request Ms.Rnuka Chowdhary to do something rather than politicizing the issue. No one will disagree that all the money made through unlawful means ends up in beer bars, pubs and brothels. We can stop the evil ďCurruptionĒ which is a cancer to our society by putting ban on dance bars and eliminating brothels. But Bar business being major revenue to a few state governments and political leaders/parties, who is going to ban it. The young generation is living in all luxury, they want more money (by whatever means) to enjoy life with wine , women and drugs. Poor parents are really finding it difficult to meet both ends and some resort to bribes for this. Taking the slogan ď Why should only guys have all the funĒ, more women have started using drinks,fag and drugs. They all feel having boyfriend, dating with them is a privilege. Many encourage living relationship and didnít find anything wrong in it. They think the modern women should behave like this. They think this is life and freedom. The Media and Filim Industry are really encouraging and exploiting the young generation which they donít actually realize.

Secondly due to BPO and Call centre culture even the innocent girl of 18 yrs lured to drinking which she never done in her life. In company party girls asked to dance with senior. Due to think this is permisible in the name of call centre. So we should ban all this in BPO and other Company. So that we dont give chance to pollute our culture and we dont come to such a extent that people had to take law. So we should sanitise this thing in the company.

Petition:The mob should be severly dealt with. A rape incident in Noida also displayed a similar mindset. The boys argued in their defense that the girl was in a "compromising" position with her friend that led to her rape by them. The pretext that the mob in this case gives is that the girl was "improperly dressed". Thank God they did not resort to rape. I would like to tell all of them that you are noone to judge for us if we are wearing good or bad. neither you are anyone to impose your wishes on us of what should we wear, or where should we go. All this displays a "parasitc" social midset. In this era of globalisation when the economy has opened and cultures have mixed you cannot expect things to reverse. When boys are free, why cant the girls be. I just want to say that noone has the right to even touch a girl or abuse her "even if she is wearing a skirt up to her neck".

Petition:We do not need moral guardians to tell us what is wrong and what is right. Culture is an ever evolving entity. If we stuck to only what our ancestors did, we would still be wearing animal skins (that was the culture for early man), hunting animals in the wild and eating raw meat!! Why is police time being wasted on such non issues?!! We have so many other pressing matters on hand. What gives a small group of people the right to determine and enforce what is Indian culture!! Isn't this what the Taliban is doing in Afghanistan? India is such a vast country that, to give definition to its culture is insulting it!! Coming to the issue of drinking and smoking. I remember both my grannies used to be fond of a tipple as well as chewing paan. They lived in villages all their lives and were well respected for their wisdom and values. How is it then any different from girls going to pubs? Every girl who gets drunk in a pub is not going to sleep with a guy!! I do not know when we in this country will start seeing girl-guy friendships as something that can be platonic and not always with sexual undertones!! We definitely need a lot of growing up and maturing to do. Our collective mindset seems to be stuck in a time warp.

Petition:This is what I call political terrorism. Compare them with all the ten Qasabs that almost killed Bombay from VT to Vile Parle and the paths in between. They had two key objectives, one, instill fear of terrorism and two, get media mileage to get a career. The people who want to Talibanize India have the same objectives. Terrorize people and gain publicity for the forth coming elections. How much ever we say here that we should not vote for them, there is larger mass of Talibans who will vote for them, coz they do not even know that these goons will bring with them once they are in power. Only way is to cut their air supply off for good. These parties should be treated exactly as terrorists and be banned from participating in elections. Does anyone have any idea how to stop them from participating - think practical ways... I for one, do not know how! Also remember, the head of the party that created havoc in Mangalore, was released on bail (later arrested again for some other crap), since the courts did not see his party's contribution to be bad enough!!!

Petition:We've repeatedly heard from numerous public figures that "nobody will be allowed to take the law into their hands"; my question is what law were the women breaking? And who, actually, was breaking the law here? If the girls were indeed taking drugs, then was the anti-narcotics cell of the Karnataka Police sleeping? The CM states that "pub culture" is wrong. I would like to know what he defines as pub culture. Now a small percentage of urban beer drinkers has become more threatening to our culture than those alcoholics who regularly visit arrack and wine shops, throw away all their money, only to return home and beat up their families? The CM has also stated that the Government will seriously consider banning the Sri Ram Sena only if they continue to cause such disturbances in the future. Pramod Muthalik has more than 45 cases pending against him, recently lauded the Malegaon bombings saying "they were just the trailer", indulges in divisive politics under the name of religion and culture, and recently masterminded the attack on a pub in Mangalore where around 40 men barged into a pub and assaulted, harassed and molested the women present. Does the Government really need any further reason to ban this group and sentence Muthalik to a long term behind bars? As for our honourable leaders talking about how their deadlines have helped to stop crimes, all I have to say that crimes are in fact on the rise in many parts of Karnataka. A ban on alcohol can be implemented, if needed, but a deadline on nightlife or a ban on pubs just does not make sense. That is equivalent to saying that crimes will not happen if everyone locked themselves up in their houses. Is this the next directive that's going to be issued by the BJP? It's certainly easier than protecting the citizens isn't it?

If such kind of goons will be killed by a mass ....all other goons won't interfere in some one else life... Its not a time to shout.

Petition:what happened in mangalore is certainly not acceptable to our culture in mangalore. it was well planned and the media was present with perfect positions to shoot thier so called "movie". It shows it is politically motivated and the police have hands with it. if Ram Sene and all other Sene's want to safe guard the culture, let them join Indian Army and fight the terrorism. When the terrorists are existing in India, how can we expect Pakistan to handover terrorists to us? Let the Indian Government do the capturing work of these inside terrorists of our country. The worst terrorism we are facing is from within our country. it is certainly Talibanization of India. let us unitedly fight against this act of Talibanization. if we do not act now, it will act on us.

Petition:INDIAN WOMEN CULTURE An Article appeared in DINAMALAR, regarding the culture value and women of India. (02/02/09). This paper lashes the cancer in society as long as, the other side involved, are weaker than the paper-strength. Of course, viewed from, its required obligations to society, the article is absolute, however if it is universal its laudable. Anyway, this aptitude is only a passing remark ď nirai kakum kappeven seyyum Maglir nirai kakkum kappe thalaiĒ (Tirukkural)(Tamil in English) Under the constitution of India, every citizen, including women has the right to apparel, living and leading life to his/her liking, within the boundary of permitted under law. The law had equally permitted for expressions for and against, in a democratic way. However what we saw in Mangalore is more than a terrorist attack and indecent to the core of Male youth in a hotel. This goes to show that itís a male dominated society and all rules are written by males. Women are the strongest in society, better than males, who donít know about their strength, like an ELEPHANT. Drinking, dancing and dating have come to stay in our society. Who prompted this? Men folks lead the front. Women showed the path. Men wanted to see the neighbor naked but not his woman. Here the contradiction had arisen. Women has all charms, a finer creation of GOD and she will shake the kingdom; men knew about it but wanted them to become their prey except, his own women who shall guard her chastity; we quote the outcome here as from western culture; but we forgot that women whereever they are viz IN India /western/Arabia have the same set of standard procedures; if women are respected they respect in turn your honor; but you cannot depict them as your pleasure-public-pots; the women turn hostile; as long as it does not touch your interests, you are not bothered, I mean Men-folks; that is why prostitution is deeply rooted; when his daughters and wives turn to a life of proximity men start thinking about INDIAN CULTURE. Ramakrishna Parama hamsa was met by a lady who wanted her child to be advised to refrain from eating lot of sweets. Parama Hamsa directed her to come along with the child after a fortnight. On that day Parama Hamsa preached to the child about the bad effects of swrrts and the mother asked that this could have been done a fort-night ago. Ramakrishna said that she was right but he himself was fond of sweets and one who preaches shall practice first and so he took time. MEN SHALL PRACTICE BEFORE PREACHING ABOUT THE INDIAN CULTURE. . Men write stories of women and sex in sweet style. Men produce paintings and pictures depicting women as a sex object. Men produce films where women are portrayed as a voluptuous creature always thinking about nothing but sex. In television serials, men project women as having two husbands or they are two women in men life. Men draw pictures in Magazines with women fully exposed. All cine songs are written with sex as the basic instinct as expressed by women. Men politicians treat women as second in line but needed for votes bank to attract men .Men force the women to do the age old profession. What women can do? They have to survive. Unashamedly women condescend to the wishes of men, After all these things MEN TALK ABOUT INDIAN CULTURE WITH SHAMELESS FACE!!! The News papers and Magazines, TVs and Media, filmdom and its fraternity fashion shows did not contribute a dime to stop this non-sense and in the contrary, give lot of exposures to society. Every medium are flesh sellers who make lot of money out of women. Men booze and make merry with women but protect his women folks into a shelter. Will the producer of the film make his daughter dance in a film and shoot as he does with cine-stars? AND THESE MEN IN RAM SENA SHOUT ABOUT INDIAN CULTURE AND BEAT WOMEN!! Beating women is not our culture. Youth who created an act of terrorism in Mangalore should have moral-turpitude, or else they will not act in this manner. The article from where this view is expressed is good but will it stop publishing cinema malar, cine news and articles of distaste? Will this kind of paper write similar articles against Film and TV industries shallow aptitude? Will it make a movement against Politicle gimmicks on women? Will it ask men to change the focus and wear a new glass to respect women? When all these things happen we can speak about INDIAN CULTURE, TAMIL CULTURE ETC. Unfortunately, to conclude finally, itís a pity that women are prepared to expose for pleasure and penny and no women forum raise their voice to put a stunning halt. First let men who created the vandalism at Mangalore be severely punished E(N)DE (GURUVA)YURAPPA.

Petition:I have read a lot of criticism on the Sena on attacking a pub in Mangalore. But now there are reports that the pub was not at all a pub. It was actually a bar tendering its service to a logde customers, and was illegally arranged as a pub and dealing with drugs & drinks and illegally luring boys & girls to enjoy there. When the sena went there on request by the general public, the members were not allowed in. After arguments with the pub people, the sena in a fit of anger took to the extreme step and the result all have seen. The family of the youth who were at the pub at the time of the attack are hiding their faces out of shame and keeping away from the police and media. Now who is to be blamed?

It's not necessary that people going end up drinking alcohol. Pub is a place to socialize in this modern world for the Young generation. These so called Rakhwalas of Hindu culture need to know that there are more liquor shops in the every localities then the number of pub. Why don't they first stop them and then move on to the PUBís? In Bangalore you i have seen more liquor shop's then milk parlors where you will find people drinking on the streets to there glory and that's something which is our Hindu culture as per these CULTURE COP's because you will never find them stopping this. They are bunch of Hypocrites. No religion teaches us to do violence or to forcibly implement your views, especially in Hinduism it is never said that to behave like a dictator. The actual meaning of Hinduism is Sanatana Dharma which means everlasting, this religion is driven by the dharma, karma and the reincarnation. Why do in my life is what I get in my life then who are these people to come and punish me.

Petition:The cowardly and shameful act in the name of protecting india's 'culture' is a shocking to say the least. Well if the so called "pub culture" is not Indian then how can one explain that the beating up of young girls by a so called group:protectors of hinduism is. Actually rather than calling them Sri ram sena , they should call them selves h*** ki sena....well wait...infact this would be an insult to h*****.Getting in a group targetting and molesting young individual girls in the name of teaching our youths a lesson and creating terror among the pub going public is never ever going to get our youth on the 'right' track. These groups like Sri Ram Sena etc...and hooligans supported by parties like MNS and Shivsena....who claim to reflect and protect hindu sentiments(and are experts in getting into mobs and targetting helpless individuals...remember the valentines day incidents,bashing up north indians during railway exams,sending off pakistani artists etc) should be told that first of all nobody in this country has given them the rigths to do so. If that was the case they would have been in power. Agreed that the whole argument of whether pub culture is good or not is debatable.But India is supposed to be a DEMOCRATIC country and we should let educated adults decide for themselves what they want.People are FREE to do what they want and choose in a democracy as long as they follow the law.Why dont these parties address more serious issues such as child labour/trafficing ,prostitution and thrash up people who accept bribes(RTO,govt officers,politicians), demand dowry, divide people in the name of caste/colour/region/religion. The manner in which such things need to be handled are of utmost importance.Terror can only produce a tense and a rebellious atmosphere.The correct way would be to show the negatives of pub culture,alcohol, cigaratte etc by showing the positives of leading a healthy life,focusing ones energy on personal and national growth.Rather than beating up girls and imposing restrictions on youth , why not oppose and ban the consumtion of alcohol altogether(again debatable).And why only the girls are to be barred...what 'punya' did boys do that they got a license to drink? I just hope,wish and believe that the Indian youth will very soon realise that they are being mislead in the name of religion. The modern Indian youth is educated and mature enough to make his own decision and choice. Thus they should strongly reject and suppress any attempts to 'terrorize/talibanize' and misguide the public.Especially any attempts to divide the public and disturb Indias unity in the name of culture/caste/region/religion/gender/age group.We are the people of a country where Mahatma Gandhi was born...lets stop this dada-giri and promote his principles of love-respect to all,honesty and non-violence.

Petition:I think we are giving big names to the act, Have we gone to the root of the act and why it was conducted, Yes, I do agree that the way it was conducted was not right, but what options did they have to stop something which they felt was creating a wrong example for the teenagers. Does everyone have an access to media, Only the influential and rich have access. Mostly the women who goes into such places are coming from the influential class. So would the media go against them. Lets see both sides of the coin, Well you are spending your own money and not directly hurting anyone. But there are people looking at you and learning something, especially teenagers, So I think one should refrain from such places, Are they no other place to meet. Ironically media twist any subject in the way they want, Somedays ago I was watching a major channel airing mithun chakraborty view on young girls wearing too short dresses and he remarked that this leads to provocation for a man on the street, and has rightly admitted men have a different angle to women unless they know them very well, and this type of provocation leads to bad conduct. You cannot change man, at many times you want them to tease the girls. Well thats what is shown in movies. Instead the channel challenged mithun as what he was upto when he was a india biggest disco dancer. This type of attitude from Media does not lead us anywhere and looking at this, No one else would like to suggest anything. Ok lets for argument sake leave cinema separate than real life. then in that case wearing scantily should be confined to cinema as an entertainment tool, but should not come to the real everyday life to entertain unless one is an entertainer. Now your arguement is then how western culture has excepted it. I believe even in western region, those who want cheap publicity do this. People who are really beautiful can be judge from their attitude, their talk and their ways of carrying themselves. Ultimately instead of making a hype about an incident like this, lets question ourselves are we supporting the society we always wanted as indians/international indians. I am sure at the back of mind of some parents who oppose this act, they understand that what their kids are into is much different than what they wanted from them. So lets talk about the inner feeling than rather going along with the wave. These are my opinion, if you like it, but I would like to have a response from the reader if the made sense.

Whatever the underlying cause, they are terrorists, after all terrorists also think they are fighting for a cause, and hence go about killing people. There is no difference between them and terrorists. You can either bomb a person or kick 20 times and kill, which is better ? Arent both bad. I would consider them as terrorists and every such person trying to impose religion onto others should be punished to the fullest extent. Its time law becomes stronger and people take note of this, otherwise if justice is delayed then believe me you will find a lot of people taking up arms against this terror, we are already living under the terror of goons, terror of pakistani terrorists, terror of theifs, terror of relatives, terror of ramaliga raju, terror of politicians, terror of moral police, terror of MNS, terror of shiv sena, terror of caste war, terror of povery, terror of hunger, terror of inflation, terror of pollution, terror of relegious wars, and now we have terror of seeing our sisters and spouses being openly harassed, by these dirty ugly goons.

You can do anything you like legally if environment around you is safe. Does india have a safe environment where such a freedom can be practiced? But I also hated the way some hooligans in name of religion and morality misbehaved with Girls. Its nobody's business to tell others whats moral and whats not. If some forces are so worried about it what options do they provide? Let the people close these pubs for not opting to go not because of vandalism. Its like challenging religious conversions. Work for social upliftment and abolish social classes instead of blocking people from practicing freedom of religion - a constitutional right. These elements have to nipped in the bud. There are many things we don't like but we have to provide a platform for people to come to not to bash others who are not like us.

Petition:These attacks on women is shameful, and symptomatic of a weak society taking out its frustration on its own. Sri Ram Sena, if it had the guts, should go after, or at least come out and protest against, the extremists that perpetrated the Mumbai massacre. Is it very Hindu to be a mute spectator to Islamic violence? I guess these jokers think that by terrorizing young, fun-loving women, they are somehow asserting their reliogosity. Me thinks it is cowardice, of the sort that has always seen Hindu society turn on its most helpless and down-trodden. Never has Hindu society confronted external, larger threats in a coherent and courageous fashion, prefering, instead, to behave like a domestic abuser. Shameful, to say the least. And all in the name of Lord Rama, who once used to be called Maryada Purush. They are no better than the Taliban - just cowards in saffron instead of in in green....

The girls did not come from good families. Those who dont agree with the argument can send their own sisters, wives, daughters and mothers to pubs past midnight and let men enjoy them.PRACTICE FIRST, THEN PREACH." You are the kind of scum that infuriates everyone because you lack logic completely! Your statement is utter nonsense. Such inferior thinking. How do you know they are not from good families? Do you know them personally? Why don't you have anything to say about men who drink? or about men who molest women? and men who lech at even young girls? Men who "enjoy women"? Are you one of them? Is your family filled such filthy men? Is your father this filthy too? Why else would you talk like this, you uncivilized filth? Because you don't look at these women as equal citizens in a democracy. You consider them property. You pathetic loser! Why don't you make efforts, as an aware citizen, to make sure that, in the first place, immoral men are scared of troubling women because of the punishment they would get? Because you are just another conservative fool! All talk, no action. You have no guts to step out there and improve society. If you don't agree with the arguement, well, too bad! Live with it, you right-wing loser! You are an insult to India's hard won freedom. This question begs to be asked- Why is it OK for men to drink?! Why is it sinful only for girls/women to drink? What is the logic behind that thought? If drinking is western culture(this statement is false & hilarious, we know that!), why are only women stopped from indulging in western habits? WHY are MEN not stopped from this? Don't get sucked into this thinking its just about Women's rights. This is a well planned "incident." mangalore has been turning right-wing for over ten years now. Fertile breeding ground for BJP and the likes. It is no coincidence that Muthalik conducted this in Mangalore while the BJP is in power in Karnataka. Expect more such publicity-garnering incidents in Karnataka. And don't get sucked into a debate about culture. Many people here are falling into this trap. The right-wing will talk about Indian and western culture and shift focus from the REAL ISSUE - ABUSE OF POWER. Its not about culture at all. Its about sordid political candidates. And of course, most importantly, they had the guts to do such a thing because they knew very well that such "Indian culture" crap will be overlooked by the BJP government. They are typical right-wing cowards who attack people who cannot defend themselves. And lastly, this anger and campaign about women's rights has to be protracted because these bums do not get it. They do not see women as citizens with rights. Please understand that first. And here's some interesting information for those not in the know. Pramod Muthalik, the genius who heads this Shri Rama Sene, was earlier with the Shiv Sena in north Karnataka. Yes, THE shiv sena. But, a while ago, the shiv sena made a whole lot of noise about the Belgaum issue and insulted Karnataka. So, Muthalik, pround Kannadiga that he claims to be, quit the Sena that he swore by! ha ha ha! Overall, a big loss of face. And now, after spending the last year or so whipping up hatred to rebuild his right-wing vote bank, he staged this whole thing to gain publicity. And has succeeded, as is obvious.

And then they gain media highlight and people come to know of the existence of such a party. I wonder if they really know What is culture at the first place? I wonder what culture they are talking of when men drink and be merry and come home and beat up their wife and children. I think that is okay with them but women drinking and having a good time with friends at a pub is not acceptable. Married men dancing to a bar girls tunes in a local bar and carrying an extra marital affair with such dancers forgetting their wife and family is acceptable to them in their culture. What culture are they talking about? How many of these men respect their wives and daughters in their very own family which is a part of the so called Indian culture that they boast about. And the govt. instead of parading these goons naked in public and giving them sever punishment are echoing their concern of increasing pub culture. I am ashamed of being an Indian and a part of this culture like most of the youngsters of my age are today and are running away from this dirty political country forever. Thanks for protecting the culture but alas you couldnt protect your fellow people, young population of this country and could not gain any place in their hearts, let alone think they will ever vote for you.

Petition:Mangalore pub incident is highly demoralising. But more demoralising is the fact that our nation's law and administrative system has failed to take strong actions against such miscreants. The continuos failure of law and administration against any non-constitutional activity has actually created a more favourable environment for these miscreants. When I look around me, I find the same situation in all corners of the country. The law fearing common man of the country has actually become the weakest in the country. The system which was meant to empower the righteous is not even able to protect itself. The question is to be asked to each one of us. Do we want a country where no law and administrations resides. I strongly urge to our politicians and legislators to take some concrete steps against such illegal activities. Otherwise very soon, there would be no country left for you all to rule.

How can all men ignore this fact that both men and women have equal rights to take their decision.

They are being tested in all positive/ negative aspects by men (with their own liberal mind) rather than other women. Its been an unfair life for them in this world.

Petition:The Mangalore attack is a classic case of violating an individual's right rather than prophecising any religion or culture. The so called moral brigade and their political backers need to look very hard into the country's problems and decide what is morally correct. Highest corruption rates, crime rates, poverty, lack of fundamental human rights far outweigh such issues. The attack is just another typical example of male chauvinism that still exists in large parts of the country. Unable to accept women's empowerment, it is an attempt to push women back into dark ages. One must appreciate and commend the new generation, who not only are open in expressing themselves by asserting their individual rights, but are also smart enough to decide right from wrong and set their own limits. As parents, we must guide them and yet stand by in case they falter rather than raise the whip. What about hooliganism during holi with bhang drunk people or social gambling parties during Diwali and so on. If these are acceptable Hindu cultures, why not youngsters having some time out, if it is acceptable and within limitations set out by their own parents?

It is yet another dagger through our broken hearts. It was once again a brutal reminder that as a country we have decided not to grant protection to half the population. Those who carry out the assaults are unabashedly bold and unrelenting, because they know that there is a political and judicial construct that will help them get away with their crimes. That explains why after the attacks and the outrage that followed, they have been freely intimidating the victims and also the brave young man who came to their rescue.

Petition:30.01.2009 I think most of our Countrymen have forgotten how our Leader Raja Ram Mohan Roy liberated the ladies from the shackles of the terrible conservatisim which was pulling them to the abyss and I am sure he would be very saddened at this stupid turn of events in Mangalore by this so called sena people. It seems we have forgotten we are in the 21st centrury and behaving as if we are still in the 18th or 16th century. A very big shame on the events in Mangalore and Mumbai (Remember how Raj Thakeray talked about north Indian People in Maharashtra )and where is he now!!!

Petition:While it is highly condemnable and objectional aspect that rquires stern punishment to the guilty, it is not necessary to make it a big forum of discussion while no forum like this was initiated by Rediff on Mumbai Terrorist incidences etc. Now this looks like sidelining the Mumbai terrorist incidence to forget as usual and now whole media is after this incidence including some public, while not thinking, debating or commenting upon Pakistan recent repeated denial of their terrorists incidences in Mumbai and their failed attempt in Delhi one day prior to Republic day where Pakistan terrorists were encountered and found with pakistan documents. Everything has become Politics in India, that too before elections forgetting the crucial issues to be solved and some Public are also falling prey to this badaa-chadaa indirectly helping these failed Political Parties to win alternatively duing nothing for the Country and by reconciling and compromising with the National Issues on INternal and external defence matters. God only should save us not to get entangled with these issues which Law definitely takes care of. We should not waste time on a very little stupid and rowdy groups which are not new in India. Every religious perverts some time or other creates this in India because of no checks and appeasement policies for votes sake.

Petition:I will like to ask those people who are reacting with such strong words over a small pub incident, that why were they quiet when 10,000 Sikhs were burnt alive in 1984. Thousands of innocent Sikh women were raped in 1984. Still the learned people of this country went and voted for Congress. Even Taliban atrocities are nothing in front of what was done to innocent Sikhs in 1984. So i will request the bloggers here to stop making noise over a small issue and raise voice against bigger and more evil incidents.

Whatever they do in the name of "religion" is perversion of - and a shame on - this noblest of human institutions. True religion of mankind or for that matter, any of the prophetic religions do not endorse intolerance or violence. It actually liberates man whereas in practice, it is the opposite. This perversion is getting so widespread that one is left wondering whether any state in today's world will be able to curb it.

Petition:Talibanization means putting acid on the women if they go to learn in school and gain knowledge, in short not allowing women to be wise , educated and knowledgable. Drinking and drug addiction is the biggest curse for our society. It has been proved scientifically that smoking, alcoholism and drug addiction has more adverse effect on women. Going to bars at odd hours in the night is not something that can be called an achievement for women's liberation. In fact drinking enslaves women and men alike. Gandhiji wanted complete prohibition in the country. But the liquor lobby is out to make money and share it with our graet politicians. That is why some people are happy if women go to pubs. In Mangalore the attack on pubs has proved to be a blessing in disguise for these women as they will not go astray due addiction to the liquor. Millions of men are destroying their families due their addiction to liquor. They are selling their family wealth and future of their families for liquor. Do you want women to destroy their families and culture or do you want women to build their families, culture and future. The attack on wrong things should be welcomed by all the right thinking people as it will dissuade these young women from going astray. Further you know the situation of law and order in our Country. Women are loooted and raped in Bangalore. Who will provide the security to these women when they are not in senses at odd hours in the mid-night. The pseudo-modern womens are least bothered about safety of women. They are on the pay rolls of liquor barons. Shaem to these people.

There was a similar incident that took place in M'bai few years back when the Shiv Sena was in full swing - this is nothing but a repetition of the same. Quote this - Muthalik: "Indian women drinking and dancing in pubs is not in our culture" Some time later, as shown in the clips on Times Now: Muthalik: "It is the time to Bomb...Every indian woman will carry bombs" - Is this in our culture?? Today if women are walking parallel to men, its a matter of privilege that we have progressed this much. Mother, daughter, sister, wife and so many acronyms we use for a woman. What price are they paying for? For being a woman? For being the fair sex? If a woman devotes 12 out of 24 hrs for her family, her social responsibilities and if she likes going out to a pub with whomsoever it may be, does it mean she is out of the indian culture? Cant she enjoy a couple of hours of freedom for her ownself? Wake up guys. Its high time we change our thinking. Hit the real issue which is out here - hit those guys who think women who go pubbing are a loose character. Its a modern generation.

All those people who raised their voice against the incident are perhaps giving vent to their false prestige. just imagine what a parent will do when the children do not follow the rules and misbehave. Most parents will resort to beating/slapping. Imagine what a teacher does to an errant pupil. Imagine what a crowd will do if they catch a pickpocket. Thrash him/her. what would you do if a thief is caught. Break his bones. what do neighbours do to a rowdy who misbehaves. beat him black and blue. ARE THESE ACTS PERMISSIBLE IN LAW? If a young girl goes to a pub it is by all means unsocial to those who believe that going to a Pub is bad. I challenge all those people who are raising their voice to ask 100 girls and women near them if they support the Pub Girls. Not even 5 will support for it is not our culture. All of you may have time, internet access and a desire to condemn the act and so voicing your biased thoughts. Think of those middle class, God-fearing, simple and general girls and women who are struggling to make their ends meet. Did anyone come near them or hurt the girls/women ? It is not correct to go on extending the impact of the incident as if all well-behaved women and girls are being attacked. If one were to extend such conclusions i can say that the defenders of pub going girls will not object to nudity, free sex, drugs, premarital sex and immoral acts by their so called MODERN and misconceived life style ?

Similarly in Andhra Pradesh, in many villages women protested against setting up of liquor shops and attacked men for drinking. Why? Is stopping people from drinking and getting addicted to drinking Talnanisation. Are development of good habits Talibanisation? No! It was only to stop their families from getting destroyed due to alcoholism? Did we condemn the action of theses women. Why the action of these people in Mangalore who attacked pubs is being condemned? They attacked pubs so that our families are not destroyed due to addiction. Why are there de-addiction centre and Alcoholic Anonymus if going to pubs is modern culture. When ever the evil in the society becomes pre=ponderant people are left with no alternative but to attack those who are hell bent on destroying the culture of the country and destroy their own familis.

Yes, physically beating up them is strongly condemnable, no matter they were in a pub. At the same time I am against the pub culture. Our conduct must be in civilised and socialised manner - for both men and women. I have read the views of respected 'petitioners' and mostly found that they are seeing only one side of the coin. They are using extreme words like 'talibanise' which can not be justified. We must go foward to the developed civilization and socialization and not backward to the stone-age, specially in our dressing. This incidence (which is strongly condemned) is done by some so-called Hindu activisits and that is why we are crying, otherwise we always keep mouth-shut even on much serious incidents done by other religion people.

Freedom of Expression is the foremost right of an individual as long as it does not hurt anyone. The girls going to the pub did not hurt anyone. The girls did not do anything illegal. On the other hand these so called moral goondas hitting the girls was an assault on their freedom. I guess we can see what kind of women-beating culture these Shri Ram Sena people come from. It is an insult to Ram that they have chosen his name for their immoral activities. These people are no better than Taliban and should be dealt with using the strictest of laws.

Majority of the activits in such groups are umemployed and are cowards not willing to work hard for a living, so an easier option join such groups and create trouble in numbers and make some money as their leaders pay them.

But life is not only about good, there are bad elements, and we have to ensure that our policing is and justice is prompt, so that a wrong message is not sent across the board. And policing doesn't only means state police, it involves each and every citizen, when the vedieo shooting was done, why wasn't there anybody calling the police, at least this could have been done, the uncomfortable questions are 1) why the pub management didn't inform police 2) why any media person didn't call police, taking newsbyte was important, but at the same time saftey of those girls were important too 3) if the culprits are caught what kind of treatment they are getting in jails. 4) why the cheif minister and home minister are coming with conflicting views. If they don't want the culture ban the pubs, but they won't do that, and let the common people get harrased and mollested. There is more politics in this whole episode, and the victim is India. In chandigarh fast track court, a German female national was given justice in just 2 flat months. Can we expect the same speed of judgement for our own females. I guess not, we can have pettion for changing the name of a movie (SDM), but not a pettition for wanting justice on a speedy basis. That's the irony.

Petition:I am a 22 year old who has never been to a pub but I fail to understand the mentality of these so called 'protectors of our society'. There is absolutely no leadership in these people who call themselves as 'leaders'. The first rule of leadership is lead by example. Before pointing out fingers at others have you corrected a simple thing of teaching discipline in your organisation? When you agree that the manner of the protest was wrong then please correct yourself first before talking about others. One needs to introspect whether he has been a perfect example for the people. My dear 'activists' understand one simple fact about human psychology you need to inspire your countrymen, dictatorship will not unite but break people. Please focus on much more urgent and important issues in our country. Even today you will find child marriages, torcher on women, dowry system, untouchabilty etc. in our society(And people are forced to follow this atleast nobody is forced to go to the pub). Shri Ram never forced anyone to follow him, he just did what he believed in, people followed automatically. Thats leadership my dear friends. When the question of western culture and indian culture comes, unfortunately it has won over our Indian culture because people have chosen it willingly. Nothing was forced. But by telling this I no where mean to degrade our culture. Not being biased I (Likewise every Indian) believe that Indian culture is the greatest of all. But highlight its greatness rather than enforcing it. Our culture needs to be spread amongst the people.

But, is beating people up, especially WOMEN, Indian culture? 3) Even if women/girls are dancing nude or semi-nude or in any obscene way INSIDE the pubs, nobody from the OUTSIDE can see them dancing, can they?? This is equivalent to married people being intimate with each other within a house and not in front of everyone. Of course, it can be argued that married ones are different, but, even in pubs, couples who are in love with each other dance with each other! What's their(so called 'moral' policemen) problems? 4) Smoking/Drinking etc TOO are against Indian culture. Why is it that i find ALL the sena activists drinking/smoking/chewing tobacco and spitting on the streets all along their way?? 5) Formal Shirts/Pants are DEFINITELY NOT Indian culture. Whey wear them then? 6) Working for foreign companies is not good for Indian culture and in NO foreign company is Indian culture being followed, ban all the foreign companies and let everyone be jobless and unemployed! There are 50 more things i can come up with and argue about, but i am not so jobless as the sena activists. If people want to enjoy, let them enjoy. If you dont want your kids to enjoy that way, then dont let them. Leave others alone.

Petition:People who carried out this attack on young innocent boys and girls should not only be tried immediately in courts but their punishment should be far more severe than what a similar attack on a boy or a girl would otherwise attract. This is because in Mangalore it was not just an attack on 5-6 individuals causing them physical harm but an attack causing grave damange on many fronts. It was an attack on our freedom of expression and freedom of choice - two fundamental rights guaranteed by constitution to every citizen of India. It was to instill a fear psychosis in the minds of young, urban, educated youth. It was an attack on liberalism and modernity and to pull India back into medieval ages. Hence, the punishment should be swift and severe to desist the rest of the Taliban like barbarians masquerading as Morality Cops from making any further attempt to undermine the tolerant fabric of India and individual's constitutional rights.

And for that matter even a beggar or a thief has more character than this political groups driven by religion. For, Ashok Gehlot and all those old BJP politicians, its time they retire and head off to wherever they find peace of mind. If you cannot respect a woman, you do not deserve to lead anything forget about leading the country. May these statements, doings and stands of these politicians be highlighted at the time of elections. Rediff and its fellow news media, please take note of this. Make a political biodata of each of these vultures so that we remember not to rest anything in their hands. Its a shame that Sonia Gandhi has still not spoken anything about this issue considering that Sheila Dixit sent out such a beautiful message by saying, my children go to the pubs. I will never stop them. Thanks.

Petition:No doubt whatever was happened in Mangalore is wrong and every body accept it uncivilised manner the way youth [gents] treated to girl[youth]. It is barbaric but one thing girls should clear their mind that they donít have any extra constitutional power which they can cross the limits. In fact Mangalore police commissioner told in front of media that there is no law to take action against him. In fact PC should not reveal the fact this will encourage the culprit and they will arrange good lawyer to scot free. As we know laws are 1947 laws and there are big loopholes and if you have good lawyers like shanti bhusan, Prashat, Harish Salve, Soli Sorabjee and many senior supreme court lawyers who are experts in their profession and once they start the arguments in supreme court the judges are also thinking how to move and which direction will go. We should also know that present supreme court lawyers are long back student of above lawyers and nobody want to overrule the teacher morality. This is fact, which we have accept. In regard to Mangalore case good lawyer should come forward and fight the case for government so that culprit can not able to freely roaming

The atrocities perpetrated on women in the pub attack in Mangalore is made the more horrific by the claim the hooligans published.They acted out of 'brotherly' love for the girls they abused,assaulted and molested. Another claim that such acts are intended to 'safeguard'and'protect'the glorified image they have of women is to be recognised as dangerous. Who decides that a woman should dress,eat,drink,talk in a particular way? Surely not vandals,uneducated boors whose authority in society is nil!

The INDIAN tradition and culture have already given a highly respected stature for MOTHER/WIFE in society.By all means the "MOTHER" a semi devine figure: worshipable in most cases. Most males always tries to dominate and take advantage of any situation. I feel that women must avoid places where they donot feel safe / not well protected. It is always better to prevent unwanted incidents. Do not go crazy on western style: even they are finding it difficult to control the disasters in social set ups in their countries.

Petition:Sir,I strongly condemn whatever has happened in Mangalore Pub case. One should not have taken law in hand. At the same time one should not forget that it is safe for everybody to stay within the frame of our culture. If the society supports girls going to pub and involving in any immoral act is right on the girls part, please remember the same could be done by your own daughter and when that happens you should be ready to allow her to continue whatever she is doing without opposing it. One should think on this point also before commenting on the subject. May be we should work within the legal framework to curtail such deterioration in the culture of the future generation. In the land of Ahimsa and Dharna, kindly tell me where did the culture of girls going to pub come from. We should be ashamed of using such words like AHIMSA & DHARNA for these purposes at the same time Rowdism should also be not supported.

Petition:These attacks will continue not only on women but other communities until and unless we stand up and do something about it. We Indians always have a habit of turning our backs and running away at the slightest act of rowdism. We just do not have it in us to stand our ground and fight them fist for fist. When people see somebody being bashed by such mobs most of the time they just stand around and watch the person being bashed or run away rather than fighting shoulder to shoulder with that person who is being bashed. People do not even take the trouble to call the cops on their cell phones when they see something like this. The only way to stop such incidents is that when passerbys see some mob bashing up a person all the passerbys should come together at once as a mob, beat up the bashers themselves, and then grab the bashers by their collars and take them as a group collectively to the nearby police station. This will not only rescue an innocent person from being bashed but will also be a deterrent for such future bashings. Every time some mob attacks passerbys should attack continuously. Make the bashers run for their lives all the time. Only then something like this will stop.

Lot of divorces/suicides arises becos of these kind of cultural change.Am not supporting the SRS team but what they did makes me to think such deeply.

Petition:The people who went on the rampage at the Mangalore pub were indulging in criminal behaviour which cannot be justified or condoned by references to "Morality", "Indian Culture" or "sensibilities". They broke the law, and did so brazenly. Indeed, they ought to be prosecuted vigorously as per the law. It does not matter if someone likes or does not like to see women in pubs. They are citizens of this country and have as much right to sit in a pub and converse, or do whatever they wish to lawfully do there. The attitude of the people who created the mayhem or those who control them and sent them there in the first place betrays arrogance and a fascist mindset. This needs to be stopped, right now.

Petition:Hinduism is a culture, its not a religion by itself. so there can be no hard and fast rules to follow, no founder of Hinduism, no eternal goerning body. We are following a culture which our forefathers followed and passed it to us. How can a group of goons self style themselves as protectors of our culture and attack people? If they justify in a manner that women need to be conservative, which hindu upanishad/ veda/ purana mentioned it? These rouges need to feel ashamed calling themselves as hindus because respect for women is the highest priority in Hinduism, unlike other religions, we have female dieties as ultimate sources of power, knowledge and wealth. Is hitting and trashing a woman in public, a cultural deed? We, as Indians by and large are free individuals, and we have liberty to follow our path of life as long as we can justify our self (aatma). Certainly we need not follow any guidelines fixed by these goons. At the same time, we are Indians, and we hold a great respect in west because of our values. We have a big responsiblty to balance our modern social life and ancestral values and I am sure each and every 21st century Indian will be on my side.We are free and responsible Indians.

How shameful was that whole event. They are exploiting the name of Lord Rama. Lord Rama Never wanted this type of brutal act against womenís. And who are they (Sri Ram Sena Workers)to decide that what other people should do to enjoy the life. Every one is free in India to do any thing to enjoy the life if they are not disturbing others life. It is government moral responsibility to protect citizen and I want to ask question to Sri Ram Sena Workers "Is it not attack on Our culture to attack and try to touch N Beat womenís like this???" Here I want to say that all they made it happen because they want to exploit all womenís sexually. But when they saw that that womenís not even gave them a look then this was the cheapest way to reach them and touch them. Again I must say only one thing.

Petition:Dear Cheif Minister, Please take strong action against the men who attacked boys and girls in the Pub in Mangalore. Violence is not part of our culture and so are Pubs. please close these pubs down as Indians have many outdoor activities which we can do rather than going in to a pub. Here in the UK I have seen the problems created by pub culture and this is not the future I would like to see for India. If gambling can be illegal, drugs can be illegal, pornography can be illegal then why not Pubs? We are a family oriented people and we do not need such activities to find 'happiness' in life. Unfortunately, people do not understand that the women in a society have a greater role to play in shaping up the future. We do not like to see our future mothers as pub crawlers. Since a society should not be biased on a gender basis, we also have to decide that men should not be allowed to go to pubs either. I hope you will take a fair decision on the men who committed the crime, as well as on the pubs that comes up in every nook and corner of the state. Regards, Sandeep

Petition:Mr. Yeddyurappa, Kindly consider that one of the girl's who is attacked is your own daughter. How would you feel irrespective of whether you approve her to go to pub or not? Secondly, as a CM you need to take a stern action against all the goons who actually undertake these pre-planned attack against general public under the clear direction of their leaders. Their leaders easily get away by saying that the incident has happened were when we were out of station or unaware of it at the time of occurrence; and is based on their followers sudden anger. This is a clear lie. These group of people are basically punishing others for their own shortcomings of either not able to afford the higher middle class life style or being too backward in thinking w.r.t the fast paced development happening in social or economic structure of cities like Bangalore. The punishment to the goons should be atleast for 1 year with a heavy penalty of Rs 1 Lacs per person and above. Also, the 1st hand statement of the ladies and men who were attacked should be considered the evidence enough to prosecute the attackers. Hope you also understand that had Lord Ram been the leader of Sri Ram Sena, he would not have crossed his 'marayaada' atleast in this barbaric style.

What if some unruly elements had done the same to the mothers, daughters and wifes of the accused, would they have been cowards and kept quiet? If few women wear undecent clothes, fault lies with their families for permitting this, even then there is zero excuse for terrifying these women. Each needs to mind his/her own business and not act as moral guardians, when guardians turn a blind eye to the happenings. This attitude will not stop women in pub. If the present attackers are really keen on improvement of society, then their representative (preferably a female) could have gone over and told the ladies in the bar that by clinging or low neck clothes they are indeed inviting trouble for themselves. and hence the need to dress covered.

As per you "In Mangalore last weekend, a dozen or more goons stormed into a pub and attacked young women for being 'improperly dressed' and 'behaving immodestly.'" you are accepting that they were improperly dressed and behaving immodestly then what to do to stop this. You are right, somebody has to raise the voice and stop such immodestly and that is what common people like us with the organisation name "Shri Ram Sena" is doing. We can't clear the dirt but we can try. Stop barking and try to digest the truth that whatever they have done it is for our betterment and it is for our young generation. Stop the idea of western culture who likes to walk nude. Be a part of "Shri Ram Sena" and raise the voice to stop everything wrong going on in India.

Worst is that the other so called males are busy watching the fun or taping it.

Petition:The propgators of violence on such issues are just not law abiding citizens. This is no way to impose cultural values. People should be culturely awakened, not violently. The violence perpetrator should be dealt with strong action against them. They are not doing good to society. Let Govt. tell them by strong action-that attacks on women is not civilised culture. Is it a heroic act to attack on women. It is a shame. These so called leaders of Ram Sena etc. are not leaders, they are goondas in search of fame, gather other goondas for such acts and become overnight the socalled leaders. They are just shopkeepers of netagiri. They fool our illeterate people. If they are the true social leaders of a civil society, they can send their message in other methods also- like one in Gandhigiri/through Baba Ramdev like movement and other NGOs. They can first set examples by putting their own families in front of such demonstrations and gathering mass appeal for a cultured society. Rather than that they should take law into their hands. But shame to our Politicial Leaders- who in the name of Rama will either garner votes or afraid to question such elements for vote banks. People should not forget that such politicians and goondas only questioned the heroism of ATS Chief, Mr. Karkare and others. And Sad part is that even our Baba Ram Dev also became blind in voicing his concern over arrest of Sadhavi. Baba Ram Dev, you are no doubt a great man of our BHARAT. But do not oppose anybody- if somebody is apparently SADHU. And Please better you remain apolitical and donot share dias with BJP leaders who take proud in sitting with Sadhus in the guise of Hinduism keeping an eye on their vote bank. Baba Ram Devji, your sainthood should not give birth to such false saints like Ram Sena Chief. Please be aware. And you must, and must seek apalogy for supporting political parties and other sadhus-when ATS Chief was doing his duty towards his Nation. He was not less than you. Baba Ram Devji, his and his collegues sacrifice is thousand time better than yours. In your zest of popularity, please do not forget, you will be victimisisng other saints, other simple people and also breed votebank politicians and such goondas who attack women in the name of religion. Babji- give a call to Indians who love you that attacks on women are shameful and that such people are not civilised. If you do that you will truly be a saint. Otherise preaching of your will only mean politicising your sainthood by political parties and you as well. Indian.

I am a Hindu and I love my religion as a way of life. Not that I disrespect any of the other religions, each one is special in its own way.

Still the way the women were attacked should be condemned because violence is no answer to any problem. Pubs should not be kept open beyond a certain time and alcoholism should be discouraged. But what is surprising is that while these type of incidents gets highlited (justifiably or not) in a big scale, the attack of MNS on hotels and universities goes practically unnoticed.

Petition:We talk about our Indian culture. No doubt it is excellent but in our culture also, we have characters like Urvashi, Menaka, Rambha etc. That apart, let us realise that,in every culture, morality and good behaviour are expected of every human being , BOTH MEN AND WOMEN, not just women alone. Is it right that women whose definition of morals defer from ours be subjected to brutality and shamed in public? Whether the women in the pub were right or wrong is not the question here. If these women were being punished for the wrong they have done, then why are we not rising up so violently against every wrong act, immoral and anti-social, that is being committed in the country by BOTH MEN AND WOMEN? Have men been given any special concession in the Indian culture to be vulgar and immoral? Is it to be assumed that Indian culture condones / approves of corruption, goondaism, lack of respect for women, murder, abortion, divorce, child abuse, homo sexuality, etc etc.while it comes strongly only against immoral behaviour by women? Here again I dare not passing anyjudgment on those girls, as I do not know anything of what was happening in the pub. But one thing I want to ask..... How can pubs thrive unless they are frequentled by men, who encourage these women....and may even be the cause for these women to be present there. LET US THINK IT OVER! There are so many platforms, in a democratic country like ours, from which a right thinking individual can raise his/ her voice against the wrongs that happen in the society. At the individual level, if someone is genuinely concerned, they could try to help the people who have taken to unacceptable and undesirable social behaviour, through the help of some organization that take up rehabilitation programmes in such fields... and try to bring them back to good behaviour, by counselling etc. INSTEAD, if individuals / groups start doing moral policing, then it will give rise to lawlessness in the name of morality.

After confirming the culprits from the visuals available with media, their hands should be cut at the shoulder level. We need to do this only once and then the results will automatically come. In case of rape too, the convicts should be eliminated through false encounters. We need to do these only in case of 25 to 30 convicts and once the news on false encounters comes out in open, the cases of rape will also come down. These might look as extreme steps but we need to do this for a better future and people like Pramod Mutalik and Yeddyurappa should retire and take rest at home kyunki inke umar mein kaam nahi karna chahiye, bulki ghar baith kar aaram karna chahiye.

I vehementally appeal to the CM to put the hands of law around their neck and prosecute them given the law of the land. They should be taught a lesson, under the law, that goes a long way towards non-recurrence of crimes of any nature, not let alone Mangalore Pub They should mind their own business and let not stray into others land.

This is a free country and if I wanna go to a pub or a disco I will do that. These people use the excuse of culture in name of commiting illegal activites and genenrally are supported by politicians.

If you say, we are living in a civilized society, then what is the problem in accepting customs & traditions drawn by our forefathers. 2) We are following rules & regulations as contemplated in our constitution. Since, we are following constitution, therefore, we are liable for actions under law. 3) Since we are abide by the law as framed by Constitution of India, we, being the common citizen, following our law. It means, there is law and we are a common people. 4) Has any right is given to me to go away from the path set by the forefathers? If yes, then, I am not the man who cares for law under constitution because law is made when forefathers designed our society. 5) If I am going out of path set by forefathers, I have no right to claim that law will protect me. You are justifying that pub culture is good and whatever happened against pub mates in Mangalore is bad. In such case, tomorrow, I want to move on the street nakedly, in front of fellow sisters & ladies. Do you allow me? If you allow me, then there is no need for any guidelines, civil codes, constitution of India, Courts, law & orders, govt. and all these are bogus because every body is free to do whatever they like.

The particular individuals responsible should be brought forth and shamed publically, for them to understand what disgust and pain they have caused to the women they assaulted. What's even more baffling that these men are yet to be apprehended for their horrid act. What are the various law keepers and so-called politicians, who all are supposed to look after the very basic human-rights of the citizens of this country, where have they been absconding so far? How are they able to maintain silence of this issue, despite all the graphic evidence available from the incident. Besides, what about the morality of those bystanders, who witnessed this incident first-hand? Has this so-called modern and previously unheard version of the Hindu religion, propagated by this very particular Sri Ram Sena, made its followers lose all sense of their morality? Take law in your hands; cause harm to fellow human-beings; disrespect women - are these the followings of this new interpretation of the Hindu religion? And what about all the above described law keepers and policy makers? Have they also secretly taken allegiance with this modern interpretation of the religion, which allows them to refrain from carry out their professional duties and ignore crude violence?

Petition:The so called Ram seva activists have commited greater sin than the actual problem with their so called moral policing. I am not here to talk what is right and what is wrong in the Hindu culture. The way they reacted to their thoughts and beliefs by harming women is truly Un-Indian. If at all they had a problem with women going to pubs, there is a way to showcase it. This is definitely not the way to go about it which makes litte difference between these so called Ram-sevaks and the terrorists from pakistan. I would sincerely like to know how many Ram-sevaks who seized the opportunity to moral police women by way of molesting have read Bhagavat Geetha? I am 100% sure none of them have read it, because if they had read they would have never even thought about harming any living thing, leave alone women. My greatest request to the Hindu culture saviours is "Please do good to others in the name of your religion, people will start believing in you". For this you need to first read the whole Geetha (thats the holy book of Hinduism, not a name of a girl visiting pub) and start preaching the goodness in the religion by spreading its messages in day today activities. See the way christianity is spreading, their main objective is lending a helping hand. Can't the Hindu activists learn from them which has been going on for ages?. So my message to the Hindu activists is clear - Spread Hinduism through love, affection and help. Everyone will listen to you. Spread the divine messages of Lord Krishna from the Bhagavat Geetha to people of India. Show the true color of Hindusim, please resist goondaism and violence, it is not in our culture.

Petition:I strongly condemn the attacks on women in the Mangalore pub last week. If the attempt was to uphold cultural values, will the Sri Ram Sene explain what according to them are Indian norms of behaviour with women? Is there any cultural aspect there? Is it enough to apologise for molesting a woman? Having said that, I also fail to understand why governments are attempting to stop "pub culture", "mall culture" and the like. I am a teetotaller, and against the consumption of alcohol for reasons of health and faith, but I do not believe in using force to popularise my ideas. Don't the actions of the BJP and its supporters like the Sene amount to "forcible conversion"? I believe that anyone who opposes "pub culture" must first ban the sale of alcohol rather than closing pubs. I do not understand the difference between drinking at home or in a pub. The present attempt to close pubs is merely a publicity stunt aimed at rural votes. Nobody wants to ban alcohol for obvious reasons.

Petition:The rise of Mob incidents are very alarming for many reasons. But the most important among them is that these perpetrators think they can get away with anything just because they are only one face in a crowd. And moreover, that makes it easy for police to give an excuse that it was a mob reaction/crime and the real culprits cannot be identified. We need some tougher laws which make the leaders of these Mobs responsible for the actions of every individual. Else people will get an efficient way to commit a crime - collect a crowd of 10-20 in the name of culture/god and go rob, rape or even murder. Most of all, we need to set some examples else these incidents will get repeated again & again.

Petition:The incident at Mangalore is quite unfortunate and unpardonable. The way Sri Rama Sene activists bounced on ladies and the men shows how they are senseless. Who gave them authority to watch the activities in the society. Mr.Yeddyurappa, the CM says he will not allow pub culture. then, why so many pubs are given licences in Bangalore and Karnataka State. They can not change the society in this fashion. Mr.Pramod Mutalib openly stated that BJP will incur loss if Sri Rama Sene is banned. What does it mean. Did BJP was elected to the power with their support in the state. Are they trying to make this state like Maharashtra where MNS is nurturing hatred among people. Is Mr.Mutalib thinking that he is Mr.Raj Thackery of Karnataka. Our CM should act very tough on these issues and abn these outfits immediately or the public will retailate and form self defence groups to protect themselves.

Petition:The incident which happened last week in Mangalore is a shame to Indian Democracy. Every Adult in Indian Republic has the freedom of expression and movement.Noone has the right to question decision taken by an adult in our country unless it causes any harm to others. I am sure that these girls who visited the Pub did so without causing any harm to anyone.So, these so-called "moral responsibles" have no business in doing what they did. The very act of visiting a pub by women was termed as "immoral" and against out tradition. But, does the action of the SriRam Sena Sainiks pomote Indianism? Is it inline with the customs of our country? This incident againg brings into focus, the male dominated society of our country. Its high time, such chauvnist men stop wasting time in "trying to create fear and havoc" and bother about promoting our cluture and tradition through meaningful medium. Hoping that the Government takes some action at the earliest without waiting for the public's extreme reactions. This issue is above all parties and politics. Hope the CM understands that.. Asha.

These people are very mistaken if they think that we would fall for their definition of Hinduvta. We Hindus know what Hindutva is. We do not need such hooligans to teach us. It is not that I like pub culture. I never go to pubs because the atmosphere there is not my cup of tea. Just because I do not like it, I cannot dictate and violate the freedom of others who choose to go to the pubs. What has angered me is not that these hooligans went and raided a pub, but the anger is for the violation of fundamental rights.

As far as the legal guardians, parents or anyone who is a guardian, does not have any issue with women visiting pubs, it is not the goverment's concern. The goverment should ensure there is no ilegal activity under the laws of India- that's it, nothing more than that. MORAL POLICING IS NOT THE GOVERMENT'S OR ANYONE'S SUBJECT MATTER.

I want to laugh at the Chief Minister who says that he wants to restrict the "Pub Culture". If the pub culture exists, the licence for that has been given and maintained by his own administration. Why the CM has awakened just now. Why are we not able to screw up the law enforcing agencies who act just mute spectators at the time of incidence and hesitatingly act after everything is over?

Petition:sir, the present campaign only highlights the role MEDIA is playing in highlighting the non-issues. as i understand the events were as follows : (a) a pub was admitting women in along with male escorts and permitting them to booze and dance, though dance in bars is prohibited in Karnataka (b) some 'goons' got wind of it and planned the attack. to gain publicity, journalists were informed in advance. (c) the goons gained entry into the pub, drove the people away, misbehaved with the women and beat them up. (d) the events were captured in camera by the journalists present on the spot and beamed to the nation (e) all channels / newspapers / online media have lost no time in questioning both the purpose of the attack, the necessity for attacking helpless women. they are also questioning WHAT THE ONLOOKERS WERE DOING when the beating was going on and are APPLAUDING PAWAN SHETTY AS THE SOLE HERO. This raises a question mark over the sincerity of the the MEDIA itself. It is clear that MEDIA had advance information of the events which were to unfold. if MEDIA was sincere about protecting the women, why it did not inform the police ? The police would have come in time and prevented what were to happen? MEDIA wants some events to survive. events are the bread and butter of the media. it wants some unfortunate events to take place, records them and beams them to the nation and harps on that for several days / weeks so that its columns / news slots can be filled. this has been the conduct of the media earlier during mumbai terrorists attack and the death of wife of a karnataka MLA as the bar owner and the chief perpetrator were both from the same town / community we can easily suspect that it has to do more with personal rivalry / hafta for allowing illegal operations - rather than any ideology. it may be noted that a person involved in yellow journalism had arranged a demonstation at MANIPAL a couple of years ago in front of a bar / dancing club - because the owners refused to meet his demands for money adequately. later he was murdered when the demonstration was in progress. it is high time, journalists start thinking that they are citizens first. the priority should be on preventing things from happening rather than doing post-mortem. if journalists think that their duty is journalism and reporting and nothing else, they should accept that every other individual of this country also has a right to have a narrow-minded view of things and his role - and STOP QUESTIONING OTHERS, POLICE, GOVERNMENT, ONLOOKERS ETC.

Petition:I strongly oppose the morality brigade that is out to keep a check on the moral code of people who live in independent, democratic, republic of India and petition the Government of Karnataka to take the strictest action action against these hooligans.. India has always been a pluralistic state that has welcomed everybody with open arms. The Jews, the Christians, the Muslims, the Zoroastrians, the Parsis, the Baha'is, they all have been welcomed and they have shown their gratitude by seamlessly integrating themselves in the pluralistic fabric of India in the best manner possible. Of course, it has not been a complete assimilation. However, that has only proved to be a thing of beauty than otherwise. The government of the day is voted in to pursue and implement political policies that do good to the populace. They have a legal framework and an executive to ensure that the laws that they frame are honoured by the population. Nobody, absolutely nobody, has the right to take law into his own hands and dispense justice as s/he feels fit. The Mangalore incident is an absolutely abhorrent act that I condemn in the strongest manner possible. I, as a citizen of this country, hereby requests the courts to take suo moto action against these moronic hooligans and not to let them go to jail. Instead they should be asked to work on any socially relevant cause and the proceeds of the same should be disbursed to the ladies who had to go through that horrific incidents. If the perpetrators of the crime are made to go to jail, it will only add to their sense of pseudo-causeism. Instead they should be made to pay for their misdemeanours in a manner that thrusts into their meagre brains the fact that their conduct was not only foolish but also at a great cost to themselves. In addition to the litany of charges that can be filed against them, I also propose the following: 1. Complete debarment of holding any public office. 2. Complete and comprehensive withholding / revoking of driving license. 3. 1 year compulsory duty at an old-age home.

Petition:I remember a hindi song - "Ram ka naam yu badnaam na karo". It means please do not spoil the name of Rama like this. When my colleagues in London read this news, they asked me, is this the India, is this the Indian Culture and is this the Chivalry of men? I had no answers !!! Would Lord Rama even dream about beating men, let alone women. Would Lord Hanuman even advice anybody to touch women like this, let alone molest them. Shame on Politicians ; Shame on Judiciary ;I read a news article that leader of Sri Ram Sene has apologised. I am sure he will be pardoned by the Chief Minister now. Where is the judiciary? Any such "Goonda" act deserves a minimum of two years rigourous imprisonment and is a non-bailable offence. But we will see these goon off on the road very soon. Public Display of Affection is a controversial topic. However, any thing done is in a private setting is completely upto the adults. These goons raided the pub and then raided a private party as well. What gives them this right? Even head of states like CM of Karnataka and CM of Rajasthan are going beyond belief in endorsing such acts. India is not what it used to be like when they were teenagers. Where are Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, Jyotirao Scindia, Priyanka Gandhi ???

Petition:I'm ashamed of such an act presented by some bastards, calling themselves Proctectors of Hinduism. It seems they are being trained at Talibanian Camps. The only difference is the JEHAD is continuing in Hinduism. I know some girls dress indescently, but it never goes like this. If you want to improve the ciulture, ban Tobacco producing companies, Alcohol factories, distilleries and pubs. This was and will be of no use as we Hindu Youth won't be frieghtened by some nuckle busting devils. We can and will fight for the Women power in our country. I hope everyone will come up and raise the voice to save our mother, wife, sister and all as tomorrow it maybe their turn if you don't turn up. India's democracy will be maintained and not be turned to Hitlerism or Dictatorship. We have the right to speak, read, write anything except it should not be hurting any entity. If the politicians are going to continue the cultutre improvement in such a way, I'm afraid if all women are going to change their religion. No women will be a Hindu, and then we all be ashamed of what happened that time, when someone asked us to raise our voice, and we just ignored it.

By the way, can't the girls, or for that matter any Indian, keep away from drinks and pubs at least for a very few days in the year - like the Independence Day, Republic Day, Gandhi Jayanti...? Pubs and dens are the places where brawls could come up, if not on this, on some other occasion. That too why did the girls choose to do it at midnight? It's all right to gloat over the need for freedom and all that stuff. Are we not seeing how girls and women are being teased, raped and even murdered in many parts of the country. Is not expected of educated and sensible girls to be wary of booze parties that too on nights and outside their home? Do these girls and their supporters think of the other vast sections of people in the country, including the poorer. The non-boozing women far outnumber the boozing girls in the country and they cannot expect to have a field day and manipualte to spread their culture everywhere.

Petition:We live in a democracy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. It would be better to say that we live in what we think is a democracy. The government that we elected has let us down as it always has. It has given silent powers to organizations to terrorize the people of this country in any way that it likes. The fact remains that we elect governments that doesnt care for its people. A government that does not respect its people's right to freedom is a dictatorship. Suddenly the word culture has far reaching implications to people like me. It has become a stick with which people can be beaten to submission, to accept that which is not acceptable. Mr. Yeddyurappa, I voted for the BJP this time because I felt cheated by the other parties that formed earlier governments. It now makes me believe that yours is no better than the others. I thought I saw an Obama in you, alas I have never been more wrong. No government can tell its people what it should or should not do. The least that you can do is to enforce the right to freedom of the common man. If you keep pushing us like this, one day we, the people will hit back like the tsunami that gathers momentum with every wave. Please Mr Yeddyurappa, do what is good for the people and let that be driven by the people themselves. Great leaders dont become great by doing what they think is good for the people but by listening to the people and doing what is good for them. I dont believe that you or your government will do anything to safe guard the common man's interests. I'm sure you and your government have your own agenda. I'm just hoping that change will come to India.

Punjab police took action against drunken girls few days back. Now India is reacting as if women were attacked while attending prayers.

Petition:Mangalore incident cannot be considered as Talibanisation but, print and electronic media is creating a pyshic phobia in the minds of the citizen. Even though we strongly criticize the violent incidents happened in Mangalore, we fully supports any organizations attempt to protest pub culture and drugs culture prevailing in India. These pub culture and drugs culture is ruining young generation as well as countryís prospects very badly. It is the duty of parents and the matured younger generation to be an Indian and behave like an Indian and not imitate any type of foreign cultures to grow in India. If Govt. of India and States acted promptly and timely, these types of incidents never will happens in India and Indian Culture and civilization would ever prosper any types of foreign invasion. It is the habits of so-called secular and intellectuals to talk only in foreign language even in their house or in any public place and even in the working place even though majority of the people are well versed in the local language where they are residing. Because of this only our countryís greatest languages are in bad shape on all states. Instead of supporting the pub culture, we should strongly oppose it for the benefit of our Indian Culture and Civilization to be kept intact. Govt. of the country and States to protect this by law and individual organizations to come forward to organize protest rallies against this culture peacefully. Violence struggle but to be avoided.

Petition:So far, the CM has not shown a strong side to deal with hooliganism of any sort severely, be it the church attacks or the attacks on women in a pub. Both times, we know that groups which are in some way connected to the BJP called the shots and the CM bowed his head before them. He is a CM in a secular country and he has taken an oath to discharge his duties without favor, compulsion, or any sort of influence. So far, we do not see this. I am afraid that the leaders who instigated these attacks will go scot free and become more stronger and daring in their actions. We want the CM to stand by the oath of office he has taken and discharge his duties with honesty rather than with any allegiance or favoritism to any particular group, religion, sect, political party, culture, etc. Let the common man/woman know and feel that he/she is protected and can live as a free Indian in a great democratic country like ours. We need him to take stock of the situation and punish the hooligans of these incidents severely that they do not raise their heads again. We need the CM to pay more attention to improving the infrastructure in the city and providing better amenities to Bangalore and to all the towns, cities, and villages in Karnataka. We want him to help the farmers have a better life. Bring welfare to the poor who live in slums. Help the underpriviledged. Clean up the government offices of corruption and favoritism. Make the police force free of corruption, discharge their duties free of political influences, and protect the citizens with honesty, integrity, honour and courage. Please, please CM, distance yourselves from hardliners like Bajrang Dal, RSS, Rama Sena, etc., who seem to have a free hand thinking that you will not do anything to them come what may. Tell them and make them realize that the rule of the land (India) is above their rule and you are a strong CM and will not allow them to do anything as they like to terrorize the people of this State and Nation.

Petition:If the law of the land is being broken, every citizen has the right and duty to report it to the police. If people indulged in illegal obscenity or nudity, any one who witnessed it was bound to report it to the police. The Ram Sena members too, as law-abiding citizens, had the right and duty to report to the police if they came across illegal obscenity or nudity. The Ram Sena members could have enforced their right and duty in a perfectly legal and appreciable way. They could have gone to the place, entered the spot one by one, observed the proceedings and, if the goings-on there crossed the legal limits, they could have stood up together, peacefully protested by shouting slogans, displaying placards, and urging the persons (who indulged in illegal obscenity or nudity) to abide by the law. If any lady was nude, the Sena members could have provided her with enough cloth to cover her nudity, and urged her to continue whatever she had been doing but without being nude and without breaking the law. If the legal bounds of obscenity and nudity were being exceeded, the Sena members could have video graphed the evidence, called in the police, provided them the proof, and asked for appropriate action. The Sena members should have shunned violence all the while. Had this been their approach, the Ram Sena would have received wide appreciation and support. Many members of the public would have even come forward to join the Sena, attracted by its non-violence. Several other, similar organizations would have emulated them too. And, more important, their ideological mission against illegal obscenity and nudity would have been accomplished. Instead of following the non-violent approach, what have the Sena members actually done? They beat up ladies, groped them, stripped them and molested them and would, perhaps, have advanced further but for the several cameras that were vying with each other to capture as much as possible. I fail to see any ideology worth the name in the Sena membersí conduct. What they displayed was the clear intention to exploit the occasion to the hilt, for molesting ladies, under the guise and protection of ideology, culture, civilization and so on. If the idea of the Ram Sena members was to prevent obscenity and nudity and thus protect culture, why did they themselves indulge in obscenity by groping, stripping and molesting ladies, throwing to the winds the very culture they should have protected? Sheer carnal desire was their driving force and not any lofty ideology. They were more cunning, crafty and vicious than the common eve-teasers and molesters found on the street and should be dealt with accordingly. Coming to nudity and obscenity, what are these anyway? What or where is the legal limit? A woman should have the full liberty to dress the way she likes. It should be her own choice. If she goes nude where is the need to punish her? It is we, the men, who should bridle ourselves. Our lack of self-control is not reason enough to punish women. It is time men respected women and womenís rights. The extent of protection, respect and indulgence that women enjoy in a society is the best measure of its civilization. Where women are not safe, where they are forced to wear straight-jackets and chastity-belts, we cannot claim to have advanced much beyond the barbarian-stage. Men who are easily overcome by carnal desire and who, discarding the robes of civilization at the drop of a hat, molest women need to be kept fastened inside dungeons. I do not like nudity but I am ready to fight, to my last breath, for womenís right and liberty to wear or not to wear, whatever or whichever way she likes. Sunil M S

No one tells me what i ought to do as long as it is within the confines of the law. I dont care if it is immoral as long as it is lawful. my definition of the moral police is the saddist, impotent, coward group of people, underacheivers, losers who could not do anything worthwhile in their lifetime. The kind of people who could not control any aspect of their lives, neither personal nor professional. Eternal failures filed with insecurity. It is not a moral activity to find strength in grouping and attacking innocent females. To me it is no different than gang rape. One one hand they call themselves followers of Ram and acts which not even Ravan would have done. This is not a thing that a person with self respect would ever do. we are educated people here and you would find lots of them who would have done a better study Indian culture then many of your ministers. Let me remind you sire if you are unaware that a month back India faced one of the worst terrorist attacks. Therein our country faces a problem of much bigger magnitude and these issues which divide the nation internally and issues which are aimed at securing your vote bank are totally uncalled for.There are lots of things that India can benefit more from than from preserving the great "Indian culture" which once upon a time included socially flawed practices such as Sati, dowry, child marriages, untouchability etc. I am sure your state faces issues like crime, poverty, literacy, Employment, lack of infrastructure, poor health and till the time there is a visible progress on any of these fronts, respected Minister sir, we donot want you commenting on this hollow subjects such as this. Having given you the mandate, people look forward to you for their safety. Little do you realise by making such loose comments you are actually encouraging these anti social elements. Little do yo realise that this will lead to a heavy intolerant attitude in the society giving rise to crime. Moral values are not something that you can enforce on anyone.

Our news channel tells us that Pakistan is a terrorist state and even on Samachar had a website with the Muslim Terrorist Group leaders and its duty. We too in India should do the same for this crack Hindu fundamentalist, So many things are happening in India by these Hindu fanatics. Are we competing with the Islamic terrorist?????.

Petition:Whether you call it moral policing or preservation of our culture, no body has a right to affect my freedom as long as my actions do not affect others either directly or indirectly. It is not just against women? Can you justify an attack on men just because they were taking drinks in a pub? Fashion is a relative term. What is fashion to you may not be fashion to me. Just because you do not like the way in which I dress, you cannot stop me. My food may be a poison to you. But you cannot stop me from taking my food.One man's food may be other man's poison. I may beleive or may not believe in the Almighty. You cannot force your opinion on me. I may not belong to the religion you belong. You cannot criticize my regligion. I may belong to a forward community or backward community. You cannot prevent my from growing. In the name of reservation you should not prevent my growth and deny my opportunities. Unfortunately all these things are happening because there is no unity of purpose. The sole purpose of every politician is to earn wealth for his family and for generations at the cost of public. To achieve this, the politicians play with the public by creating discord between religions, communities and castes. There will be an end to all that are begun either well or unwell. Let us hope that atleast we will begin well and continue to be well. No one has a power to take law into his hands. You punish the party he belongs to. Reject them totally in the next election. Tell them effectively by your votes that you disapprove their behaviour. After all power and money will change a person. If we deny the power, people will change. Sundar

The fact is that these certain collective bunch of men cannot handle the fact that women have come ahead so much so that they are leaving these men behind! Our country is already facing problems of recession and terrorism, should'nt these so -called leaders be focussing on these issues? Instead, they decided to suppress women, minority religion and rampage public properties. We need to stand together against these atrocities now!

Petition:Lord Rama is know as "Maryada Purushothama Rama". What these goondas practicing in his name is nothing to do with our culture. This is sheer pervertism. Who have given them the authority to teach our culture to ladies of this country? We all know our culture and limitations. We know what is right and what is wrong. Do they know culture or did they practice Hindu culture when they were terrorising these young girls? They were hitting them and trying to pull down their jeans and take off their tops...! When did these people turn into Dushyasanas? Don't they know that Draupadi alone was the reason and the motivation behind complete destruction of Kuru Vansh? These people who practice hindu culture according to them, are seen in Mangalore, drinking at bars in the evening, taking girls by force by threatening them, doing hafta vasool in their "Ram Sena" name. I am not writing it just for the sake of writing. I have seen it with my own eyes. These people are not saints. They are cruel and psycologically disturbed. I have seen my friends going through hell because of these few bad men. These people will have to be punished severely, so that the rest of the society can live in peace.

Petition:Dear Chief Minister, I feel very sorry for you as You cannot inspire people to do great things.You cannot take the confidence of those people who are well learned.It seems as though you are acting just as a manager in a petty shop. Let me tell you one important thing that you politicians hardly ever think off.The attitude of the people in our state is selfish and they are only bothered about their family,their caste and their creed.Why this has happened is because of you politicians.You reach out to people only for the vote and always forget once the polls are over. Now let me come to the point.Karnataka has a rich cultural heritage you can see it in Belur and Halebidu If you are a rational human being you will definitely understand what are they.Now the Karnataka police target not the thieves,not the murderers or the terrorists,they are so hopeless that they only target the middle class people.They are the ones who encourage people to go against the law of the land.They are the ones who flout rules and act as though they are demigods and forget that they are public servants.It is because of you politicians that the police have started looting the people. Now here is a challenge for you.Go to any police station in Bangalore and have a random check or try to give a complaint you will come to know how those loafers behave with the public.And it's because of you that the police have become goondas and that is why the public hates you the politicans and the Police and because you are weak and cannot stand up for the right let even think what is right because you cannot even do your job properly.that's why we are still a backward state. wake up you are not living in 19th or 20th century.This is 21st Century and here only brains survive and not the brawns.You should be smart and be tactical yet be lion hearted to achieve the goal of a corruption free Karnataka as indicated in your earlier resoultion.You got to have right persons with right technical knowhow and those who have passion to work for the people and not those who are tooth less against the situation and are hungry only for power and frustrate the people especially the middle class. this is a wakeup call for you.If you do not act now your actions will be questioned in the eternity.

Petition:Indeed a very shameful, despicable and cowardly act. I wonder how these men, claiming themselves to be protectors of Indian values and culture, could beat up women who were defensless. Is this our culture? Though I do not think that drinking is the best way to relax, nor going to pub the best way to socialize, I don't think its wrong either. They were not drunken and creating any nuisance. All that was being done was within the closed corridors of the pub and what harm was there in that? Let's all understand that culture is not static and it was never like this 2000 years back nor shall it be 2000 years into the future. Cultures do mingle , share and evolve and if anything is construed as seriously wrong lets debate this and take the consent of the public before deciding on things. Unfortunately for us, we have people who think that they know what's best for the nation and pay no heed to such pleas, even though they are the least qualified and unsought for this. Much of what is happening is because our political class lacks conscience. Aren't their sons and daughters going to the pubs and drinking? They all know it isn't all that bad. But who would risk negating the conceptions of the great Indian illiterate vote bank and seriously jeopardise their politcal ambitions? The irony is that much of this vote bank would themselves gleefully watch their stars drinking and dancing in the movies and cheer them too, but when it comes to the urban class they wouldn't approve of it. Its not difficult to drive accross the point, but we need leaders who can call a spade, a spade. We need leaders who can lead from the front rather than being the agreeable person to all castes and communities. I would urge the leaders of the nation to come out openly and condemn such acts and dissuade people from taking law into their own hands. This acts needs to be punished severly and should not set a precedent. There have been too many incidents in the recent past of such nature and its high time we acted. India's cultural,relegious and linguistic diversity has no place for such bigotry. For those who say that this is a petty issue which pales in comparison to rapes and murders, understand this: a rape or a murder is ever considered wrong by the law ,the people and polity alike. The pitty here is there are people (mostly politicians) who pretend that this is not a crime, or rather think that it is chastened by the noble intentions. God help the nation!

Petition:It my request to all the educated and thinking people of this country come forward and step in to voice their opinion against such a horrific incident. If we remain silent then we are giving encouragement to these ruffians to carry out more damage to the society. These so called Hindu organizations who criticize Islam and Taliban are no less. Given a chance even they would like to model themselves on Taliban. If they get the power even they would like to push the women back into the confines of kitchen. Even they would ban education for women. Even they would put a ban on women doing a job. These people are nothing different from Taliban. In the name of God and Traditions they are playing the politics of hatred. They are not concerned with culture at all. For if culture was the concern then drinking is equally bad for both man and women morally and physically, but for these sick people it is bad only for women. It is only the women they attacked, they are ok with men drinking and frequenting pub, which shows that all they want is to put women behind the doors. It is not the tradition and culture that they want to preserve or they are worried about, what they are worried about is the liberalization of women. The problem is why she is going out, why she is raising her voice, why has she started defying the orders of men, why she has become their boss and giving orders to them. Attack on women in pub is just a way to give vent to these feelings. Today it is attack on women in pub. Tomorrow they will Attack any women standing anywhere as and when they feel... she is not wearing a proper dress or she has not covered herself fully or that she is standing with a male companion. Reasons could be any but I can see this kind of scenario in India in the future. If we as a citizen of a free, educated, liberated India do not speak up, do not put pressure on the government to put these goondas behind the bars and take exemplary strict action against them, then the above mentioned future awaits us. The government whichever party it belongs to, will not take action until and unless it is pressurized by its people. This has been the case with India always that is why such incidents happen. Since we have not spoken much in the past over similar kind of incidents, these goondas have been encouraged to create havoc in the name of god. Now we must stand and we must speak against and send strong message to our political class who call them representative of the common citizen, whereas in reality they are the representatives of only themselves and these kinds of goondas. We will and we should tolerate and we will not let India become another Taliban. MR. Yedurrappa , MR. Advani, Mr. Raajnaath Singh, the BJP and The Congress, and The Communists and The so called representatives of the people, do not sit quietly on this issue, please listen to the not let these goondas go scot-free...for if u do this then even u will be among those who will be remembered for sending into the DARK AGES.... I Was born in an independent nation, grew up in a post-liberalized era, seeing a nation opening up to a world and embracing a global culture Which is liberal, evolving and accommodating. I have grown up with dreams of a future that is secure, tolerant, progressive, with a better tomorrow....but increasingly I am finding myself living in a country which is becoming intolerant, radical, divisive, conservative, fractured, insensitive, Stagnant. I do not want this kind of future for my country and believe that most of you too, who are reading this, would not like to see this kind of scenario. So let us come forward, speak out our opinion in the loudest voice possible and make it heard to the ones whose ears are becoming increasingly deaf, eyes blind, and hands incompetent, that we are not going to take these incidents casually and we will not allow some illiterate, mad, and crazy goondaas to tell us what our religion accepts or what it does not....They are not even the last to have any authority to speak on the matter of religion, god and tradition.

Petition:Unfortunately there are some people who will go to any extent to gain cheap publicity. Thus we have MNS in Mumbai bashing up Biharis, we have the followers of so called Ram Sena(sic) in Bangalore molesting girls and we had hoodlums in Kolkata who created mayhem and forced Bengali writer Taslima Nasrin to leave the country even though none of them have read her novels and she had a valid visa to stay in India. You will never hear them fighting the terrorists or going to Kashmir or NE India to fight against the country's enemies because that involves risk to life and carries no name and publicity. And the tendency to indulge in such cheap publicity gimmicks is rising because there is hardly any punishment.They like to consider themselves as modern day Robin Hood and impose their own fanatical thoughts on others.And there are some politicians who patronize such acts because it helps them to come in the limelight (prey how many of us knew about Ram Sena or MNS but for these acts).To curb this menace, we should hit them where it hurts them the most i.e. impose heavy penalty and the money should be given to their hapless victims and debarr them from contesting for any post for at least 5 years.

Petition:Outrage! That is the word burning in my mind. I am a woman in Bangalore‚Ķ 21 years of age, just about to finish my degree. I‚Äôve grown up knowing that the world is unequal, that life is unfair to a woman, especially in India‚Ķ But this? This is the end of tolerance for me, this is the end of resignation, and this is the end of hopelessness. I was not born a woman to grow up wondering why, when god made the entire world so beautiful, I was born with a curse on my brow. Men claiming to ‚Äėprotect‚Äô our ‚Äėculture‚Äô attacked women. Grown men formed a gang and barged into a pub and simply attacked young, surprised, unarmed, defenceless women‚Ķ or rather girls. And they are proud of themselves? Proud of outnumbering and molesting young women, chasing them down the road, grabbing their hair, tearing at their clothes and pushing them? Proud? And Justified? Enough of the smoke! Let‚Äôs let some breeze in and look at the fire. These men give themselves a name of a great deity, they claim that they violate the human rights of others for the sake of our ‚Äėculture‚Äô and ‚Äėreligion‚Äô‚Ķ That‚Äôs the smoke. This is the fire; these men are rapists, molesters, goons, thieves, assailers‚Ķ under the protection of large numbers where they hope that they can‚Äôt be discerned in the crowd, under the name of a god they so shamelessly use to cover their naked, sick hearts with. This time I cannot stand it. This time they have gone too far. I have grown up cynical; knowing that life would be hard and unfair simply because I am female. But when I look at my sister who is not yet 13, I have to ask myself‚Ķ Am I going to stay quiet while those criminals walk the streets? The same streets where my sister walks? The same streets where my friends walk, the same streets where one day my own daughter must walk? How can I tell my sister who is a mere child that she is a woman and thus by definition must look forward to a life where there is no freedom, where she has to walk the streets afraid of the eyes of lecherous men who have the gall and the right to hurt her if they chose and she has no right, by right of her being female‚Ķ. No!

Petition:First of all, I'd like to say that India is a country where you can not put restrictions. Our culture is all about freedom of expression be it our music, temples or literature like Kamasutra. So I recommend a total ban on moral policing. Infact I want parents to do moral policing. I guess everybody agrees that drinking and smoking are harmful but these activities are encouraged by pubs. So how do we deal with pubs that encourage such activities. Govt. should not allow pubs in residential areas. - If pub goers behave indecently on public places then they should be dealt with firmly. We should understand that we can not expose little children to indecency and bad habits like smoking and drinking. The young generation in India may consider these activities as glamourous but these habits are being frowned upon in west for health reasons. However I totally support right of person who want to smoke and drink himself to death but he/she has no right to expose young children to these habits. Finally this incident in banglaore follows a trend- 1. Da Vinci code banned in India courtesy christian taliban. 2. Taslima Nasreen hounded out of India courtesy Indian muslim taliban and communist taliban. 3. TV studios vandalised in mumbai for harmless jokes courtesy sikh taliban. 4. Mangalore beating up of girls, courtesy hindu taliban. So to say that ONLY hindus are turning orthodox or ONLY BJP is talibanising is total lie. Every religion and party are doing their bit talibanising India.

Petition:Dear All, It's not Talibanising India, first we need to address the issue on culture, culture is what always been changing. Long ago men were wearing dhotis and towels and women were wearing sarees as time passed it changed men started wearing pants and shirts and women after sometime changed to churidhars, then they changed to jeans and T shirts and then to mini and micro mini. It all depends on the mind set of women how they want to be looked at, as a Mother or a girl with soft heart or as some thing else. Men however they may be he is not the one in most cases who brings up the childrens, Only Mother takes care of child and if that mother was once dancing with guys in the pub and going with guys, how will she be able to bring up the child in a right manner. And tomorrow if that child comes to know that her mother was once roaming with many guys and dancing and drinking in pubs.. tell me how that child will feel about his\her mother. And moreover how this mother can bring up her child with good cultural values. Think about it guys.. And THE FATHERS AND MOTHERS OF THE GIRLS AND GUYS WORKING IN IT - COMPANIES IN BANGALORE AND ALL OVER - WATCH OVER U R SONS AND DAUGHTERS SEE THAT ATLEAST NOW U CAN TEACH THEM GOOD VALUES .. BUT TIMES UP .. U SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT WHEN THEY WERE YOUNG. ONE STATISTICS SAYS THAT THE CHILD COULD BE MOULD AS HOW YOU WANT WITH MORAL AND ETHICAL VALUES ONLY WITHIN 5 YEARS OF AGE..

Petition:While I am always personally against this sort of pubs and partying, that act as contributors in promoting (though not always) illegal relationships, I strongly condemn such goons who were mainly after girls in this incident. Our societies should never allow violent criminals to take such actions giving excuses like protecting culture and safeguarding its interests. People who are really concerned about the well being of their youth would never act in this way. What rights have they got to molest other women? Would they have accepted if other men acted against their family women alleging immoral behaviour? They are not moral guardians of the society but mere ruffians acting in the most scornful and immoral way leashing out their male dominance by attacking women.

But freedom to individuals to have a lifestyle of their own choice, as long as they are acting within the realm of decency(decency, again, by reasonable, not Taliban standards), and not acting against the laws of the country, which the people of this country have given to themselves, is the essence of modernity. I am sure Ram, when he accepted Shabari's Bers was being modern. More than an act, it was a statement against the opression of women and the social inequalities. ram Stood for Change.

I have read and re-read the utter shameful incident at Mangalore where a group of people who have, yet again taken, the authority to determine what is moral and amoral for the rest of us for the rest of us. The attack on women is utterly disrespectful and the people who have organized and perpetrated it have to realize that in the name of morality they themselves have committed a heinous moral offence. Violence and attacks against woman or for that matter anybody can never justified under any cause and should be punished. I urge you to preserve the social and moral fabric of the city and state of Karnataka by ensuring that these acts of violence get the proper investigation that they deserve. Lack of action will only encourage these fringe elements Sir, the people of Karnataka have placed tremendous belief and support in favor of you and your respected party.

In this day and age, when women are travelling to outer space alongside their male counterparts, these people who say that it is wrong for women to visit pubs and drink, but is OK for men to do it are being absolutely ridiculous. Why are they oppressing women in the name of upholding Indian culture? Does the burden of keeping ĎIndianí culture intact rest only with the women of our society? What about the men who misbehave with us women even when we walk down the street? And how does wearing western clothes or drinking in anyway degrade our culture.

Petition:The violent attack on a group of women in a Mangalore pub by activists of the self-styled Sri Ram Sene who could not countenance such innocent revelry is to be condemned in the most unambiguous terms. Ostensibly carried out to protect the ''morals'' of society and the ''honour'' of the women involved, the invocation of Hindu religion to justify the mob violence that included beating up the women and sexually molesting them is an act that ironically sullied the 'very idea' of India on the eve of the Republic Day celebrations on January 26. The irony is further compounded by the kind of security cordon that had been put in place along Rajpath in New Delhi and other state capitals to prevent any kind of terrorist attack on the Republic Day parade which symbolizes the idea of the Republic and the values enshrined in the Constitution. After every major terrorist attack in India and most recently after the Mumbai attack of November 26, 2008, it is reiterated that what is being threatened is the 'idea' of India and the values it embodies. The latter include the commitment to liberal, secular principles and respect for the spirit and letter of the law of the land. Regrettably while the RDay parade itself in Delhi and other state capitals was conducted with no untoward incident - the idea of India was attacked from within - by one fringe of its own citizens. However what is encouraging is the fact that all the major political parties and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)- led government in Bangalore have distanced themselves from this dastardly act and the perpetrators have been arrested. What remains to be monitored by civil society is the speed and determination with which this act of pre-meditated violence is prosecuted and the degree to which the punishment awarded will serve as a deterrent to those of similar persuasion. The fact that India will soon move towards general elections imbues the Mangalore attack with the potential to be exploited for sectarian political advantage. It merits recall that the national president of the Sri Ram Sene, Pramod Mutalik, has claimed responsibility for the attack and has even gone to the extent of threatening similar action in the future if such acts - that is women going to pubs - is repeated. Mutalik added: "Sri Ram Sene will not sit silently, watching the attack on Hindu culture. (The) Sene will not apologise for what has happened in Mangalore." Thus the gauntlet has been thrown to the Indian state and civil society - in Karnataka in the first instance. Will there be an approach of appeasement and obfuscation, as has happened in the past in Karnataka and elsewhere when faced with similar militant majoritarianism seeking shelter under distorted Hindu ideology? Karnataka and Orissa have been under a cloud after the attacks on Christians in 2008 and it is a matter of shame that the law has been applied diffidently and selectively in defending the values associated with a secular India. This is not an isolated incident and ever since the destruction of the Babri Majid in December 1992 and the events that followed beginning with the terrorist attacks in Mumbai in 1993, the discourse in Indian politics and its correlation with the polity has been one of soft appeasement of one cross-section of the majority sentiment that is deliberately stoked. The objective is to obtain short-term political advantage and this malaise goes back to the Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi years when Sikh and Muslim sentiment was deliberately manipulated.

They claim to want to ressurrect "Tradition".Then why are they not in Dhoties and angavasthrams which are the traditional male Hindu attire.Why don't they have the shika/shindu on their head and earings in their ears?That is also part of our tradition.Which part of our tradition did they follow when they slapped and pushed and kicked the poor girls?

First Gujarat occurred, than carnage on churches in Karnataka and now in mangalore. If see a sudden rise of such incidences in Karnataka only after BJP came to power.

If some groups feel that a person't act is taining Hindu culture, that group should take that matter to a concerned body. If the act is really something which needs attention, it would be taken care of. But deciding themselves and then treating people like this is going to instigate many extremists and the laws of this "democratic" country are going to go for a toss. It was yesterday when I was going with my husband on our bike and a group of guys chased us and put in some remarks. Girls have become totally insecure in our country. Even if they are with their husbands, fathers, brothers, other well wishers, if a group of guys come and tease them, there's actually no escape. I would not want to stay in a country like this. And so government and other people should NOT blame people who left the country for a better life overseas.

Petition:The issue of outrage of so called goons in Mangalore should not be looked in isolation as criminal ofense against women. The vedeo clips as available from the media displayed the ofense against both men and women. I am not in favour of act of "Talibanism". But one has to look into the issue with attention that why this type of mediaval action is happening particularly in Asia, Latin America and part of Africa. In all these continents with sizable population, there have been a planned approach of the colonial or neo-colonial rulers to destroy all heritage and social values to make them slaves without mind, brains and values. Even after departure of the colonial rulers, it is ensured that their local puppet governments follows their agenda. Since independence, India is no exception of such bad governance. Today's Hindi or regional films, the advertisement in TV channels or newspapers, the dancing mob in Disco Thecks or bar-girls, Rave parties are some of the bright examples of value errosions in the Indian society. The children from some of snob families, having quick earned money are participating in these type of shows, where incidents of other allied anti-social activities are also happening. Parents and families with heritage and social values find it difficult to maintain the values in their children. Event so called Marxist run states are no exception, they are against "Baba Ramdev" but no comment against these evils. To stop such social desease, government has to demonstrate their will in action to ban practicing such "Western (Yankee)" practices which is misfit for this country. "Talibanism" in Afghanistan didn't happen overnight and the same can not be overthrown overnight. Incidences in Mangalore is coming in light after we celebrated 62nd independence day. It is out-break of anger against sustained denial of good governance. People, particularly parents, who are providing the resources to their children needs to make them understand that freedom doesn't mean senseless activities without bothering the difficulties and sentiments of others, who can not afford to do so. I must appreciate the comments and programme of new CM of Rajasthan regarding his agenda againt such social evils.

Consequently, there are only a small number of people forced to raise their voice in the wilderness against all these powerful evils. Many times, these small number are crushed or sidelined by the powerful. However, we need to create a space for self criticism forum on religion, culture, politics, markets, advertisements, cricket and cinema to achieve an equalitarian society in India. Everyday hundreds of women in India are forced to live an inhuman life. Do we raise our voice? However, something happens to the urban dwellers, everybody started to raise their voice.

Petition:Dear Sir, the other day a Muslim girl from Pakistan was also beaten by one of these kind of Moral Police. These type of moral police is just one kind of Indian politics. It is the shadow of our political system because all these people have some kind of political support. Problem lies in the political system. If, one can do such kind of goondasism he has all the good chances of getting the ticket from a political party and can become a MLA/MP/ Minister/ CM or may be PM sometime. The best thing we can do that any political party providing ticket or support to these kind of people, we shall not vote for those party. Now elections are near and let us use this power. Media can also play a great role in this. They should keep on putting the pressure on the Administration to book these people and put them to task. Whatever we can not do we shall do that and show our strength that such kind of incidents do not happen and we Indian become a civilised society. Thanks,

Petition:I really condemn the incident happened at Mangalore, really this is a shocking to whole nation. But we have to rethink from where the problem arose actually. My views may differ with many, but i want to confirm and very much concern. The Incidents in India happens with the present culture we are adopting from the west. Please think the way the present Movies are spreading the venom in name of Love stories where the girl or Boy runs away and faces situation and in finally everything goes well and the hero and heroine get united or they face wrath from the parents and finally commit sucide, this is the present situation in this country. I really get upset due to this, you can see near a womenís college where most of the girls dress like that they want to expose themselves in front of others, they show their cleavages and they are ready to show many more if needed. First let us think that we are in a country with different culture, where we respect them all. Today girls are themselves inviting trouble, if a girl calls me and challenges me about my Manhood, then certainly I am ready to prove in any form, First lets us bring change in our daily culture, then automatically everything will change, i do not blame for the incident happened in mangalore, i appreciate them as well as criticise them, Please ask our girls in teenage to be themselves in proper, i too have a daughter 7 years, I will give her all freedom, but will not accept this type of pub culture. Please revive the culture, boys may bad, but the girls are here to spoil the game.

Who are they to decide who should do what? They don't have any right to control us as we are staying in India which is world's largest democratic country. If at all this Sena wanted to protest there were many other ways to do so. Not by molesting females. The video itself speaks out that they were not protesting but they were molesting. It was a chance for them to molest girls under the pretext of Hinduism.

Petition:Dear Frustrated Girls, Let me voice a concern here: But on 1 condition - that my voice of concern shall be read and understood by such a lady who has a teenage girl as her child and who is a HINDU. Dear Friend, No body has the right to tell me or you what to do and what not to do, moreover nobody can beat me up in public or at home, unless it is my parents or my husband. So what has happened is wrong we need to condemn it and the wrong doers have to be punished. But there is another part to it. Does this mean INDIAN culture should be handed as a gift to be spoilt and trashed in a pub or some dance clubs by these girls. Does this mean that women who wear saris and still are respected need to lose their respect just because of these skimpy clothed girls. Does this mean that we raise our kids without letting them to know what is moral education and why we uphold it in todays society due to the main cause of it being that we are rapidly losing our morality and dignity to western culture.Do you all think that mother INDIA needs to be stripped of her sari clad respect and she be given a bikini, would you approve of it. Do you young girls who are thinking that your rights are being curtailed, i wouldnt say so. If you can appreciate beauty,then know that girls look beautiful not in their skimpy clothes but in the values that they possess. Over and above if you girls and guys think that girls going to pub will help mother India to shine and rise, please take your mom and grandma as well, i am sure u will get your answers then and there. Sorry dear you can and i can disapprove what these guys did, but not what you girls are doing in the pubs. I dont think this is what i was taught by my parents, may be your parents are westerners who have just no regret nor any respect for the LAND they live in. May be not now, in future when you become parents u will know it..... Please let INDIA be as INDIA not Asst.

They absolutely have no right and authority to behave in such inhuman way.

These cultural goons, who are unethical, immoral in their thoughts, have no right to behave in such a way. Do these culture protectors abstain from sex, alcohol, bad language, TV, and films? If they are feeling depressed about degenerating women's lives, let them help the women economically and socially so that no thought of domestic violence should arise in any man's mind. If they were really correct in their action, they would not have run away from law like criminals fearing arrest. If they have guts let them come in public and educate public about domestic violence, social stigmas, and oppression of women. Then we can support them whole heartedly.

Petition:I am the Managing Director of an IT firm in London. We are in the evaluation process of setting up an offshoring subsidiary in India. Bangalore, Karnataka was identified as a prime city in our list of preferred locations. Various considerations contributed towards this decision. Apart from the usual reasons like IT Skill Pool and IT Infrastructure were also social factors like equality of the sexes and cultural tolerance. Lately I have observed with growing concern, certain incidents that have eroded my confidence in Karnataka being a destination for our offshore software development centre. I am alarmed at the recent news and video footage of a political party publicly assaulting women and justifying their actions based on medieval concepts of morality. Equally disquieting are the spate of organised attacks against the Christian community, again by a political party. Our staff in London comprise largely of Christians and almost 50% of our workforce are women. There has been trepidation among my staff from visiting Karnataka. A few women executives have out rightly refused to travel there, fearing violence from the so called ďmoral policeĒ! Being responsible for the well being of my staff, I have put our decision to invest in Karnataka on review, pending evaluation of other cities in the proximity like Cochin. Though these concerns may seem exaggerated, you may find it interesting to note - this is the image that Karnataka as a state has earned in the business world.

Petition:Dear Mr Yediyurappa, A traditional congress supporter I voted for BJP in the 2008 elections. I must say that i regret my decision now. The political journey so far has been littered with unsavoury incidents beyond a normal person's expectation. Administrative problems are understandable, but the law and order status has deteriorated to an all time low in the present BJP regime and I wish to express my strong displeasure at this. As if the mangalore church attacks were not enough shame, the latest atrocities on innocent partying women again the same city have been the last straw to any law abiding and conscientious citizen of this hitherto peaceful state of Karnataka. I express my strong opposition to your laid back attitude at dealing with right winged, rowdy elements who openly flout the law and threaten to do so in future with alacrity. It is high time the government makes a strong case against the anti-social elements involved in the mangalore Pub attack and show the people of karnataka that this government is serious about protecting the human rights of both sex, and will not tolerate any such violations in future. The perpetrators of such attacks have political connections and that must be dealt with firmly also. They deserve the severest punishment and if the goondas are let go with minor charges I am sure that the state will witness further worsening of the law and order.

Petition:This is not a strange situation against which we should "Speak Out". It is just one thing which is being hyped up too much (for reasons unknown to me). The point is that our country has rotten to such an extent that we have to speak out against everything: shouldn't we speak out against corruption, shouldn't we speak out against murder, rape and thousand other crimes that happen in our beloved country, shouldn't we speak out against the poor state of infrastructure in our fast emerging world economy, etc. There are so many areas to speak out against. But what will happen of all this speaking? Specially when you insist that we should speak up to pursuade the elected government to crack down on such people. Has the elected government ever cracked down on anything for which masses have spoken out? What happened to the huge cry made after 26/11/08. Two months have gone by and our elected government has done no action. So, my suggestion is that instead of speaking out to the elected government, we should "Speak - In" to ourselves. The goondas who performed this act should "speak-in" to themselves that what they are doing today to others might happen in another form to their family tomorrow. The need of the hour is not to "speak out" against some one or some party but to "speak-in" to ourselves to commit on doing things that we want to see happening in our country. As is often said but never followed: Be the change you want to see!!

Petition:Hi, With regard to the Mangalore Pub Attack, i condemn the RSS group who were involved for misbehaving against Women and Men. They have no right to do like this. We don't need Goondagiri, we need only through Gandhigiri. Through Gandhigiri method all can be changed. We need all the RSS bottom to the top level who were involved in this attack to get the Punishment and ban on the activities. The attackers should not get any bail to come out and start the same once again. Everywhere India's name is coming top. Buy doing this no one will be interest to invest in India due to this it loss to the Indian Youths and Indian Government. I know our culture should not be vanished out. We can't stop even the western culture, because we women have their own feeling to let it out. My only thought to the Karnataka Chief Minister is "Once again if they want to rule the Karnataka, Government should intervene in this matters and Ban the organization which is threatening the public. Government should make difference in respect to development, protect all the public and religion, employment for youth, to give opportunity to even rule the state also. I feel that Karnataka should be placed in No. 1 position in all the matters except violence.

Petition:The scenes shown over and over again on TV concerning the Mangalore Pub attack on girls, and the apathy and lack of restraining power of the BJP government must come as a wake up call to Mr. Yeddyurrappa. I feel ashamed to have cast my vote for the BJP in the recent elections and the fact that I persuaded those in my influence to cast their vote for BJP. Who else but Mr. Yeddyurrappa, the chief minister, must be held accountable and responsible for the deteriorating law and order situation. Since I cast my vote for the BJP, I would like to tell Mr. Yeddyurrappa and his tribe without mincing any words - "if you cannot nip such acts of goondaism in the bud and, if you cannot deliver upon the promises of development and good governance, ... Get the Hell out of the Vidhana Soudha! NOW!"

Petition:Rather than talking on these issues the state should give more importance to the poor people.. these people who go to pub are taking western culture.. how many of those know or realise what other part of our society is suffering from.. they just enjoy on their parents money which is also earned by them through wrong ways. becuase if any parents earn money through hard work, they will never allow their kids to spend it on pub. dont make issue of girls getting beaten.. the issue will get diverted. check whether the boys and girls both were beaten. if so then it was against pub culture and not against girls specifically.

Petition:This is Indian Taliban. It is hard to believe that how can do that before the Media, they invited media first and then they attacked on Womens. They did it because they knew that they will suffer nothing because they will put behind the bars for some days and after that everyone will forget about it. How can any one decide the lifestyel. Taliban is doing same in Pakistan and Afganistan and so called hindu activist are doing the same job in India. What is the difference between them. How long we have to bear it. Some times ago we saw in Orrise and in Karnataka and we watched the same activity by MNS in Maharastra and again we are helpless to see the same pictuer in Mangalore. Where is law? Who will Stop them? They are same like the terrorists who attacked in Mumbai. Who will punish them hard to give everybody a lesson? Dear Cheif Minister do you have that courage?Or you will just give some statements but you will not do anything again? I request Chief Minister to not only ban Shri Ram Sena but ban all the members of such organisation so that they can not come again with any other new name. Dear Chief Minister please do something to save the justice,law and the comman man of this country. Thanks & Regards Ravi Tandon

Atleast such morons will start living in discipline. 2. Thrash these people the way they beat up innocent people 3.All the girls who were molested or beaten up by these Moral police should get a chance to OPENLY thrash these men.With live VIDEO COVERAGE. Let these MORAL POLICE also feel humilation they have caused to the girls. India is a DEMOCRATIC country & people like these should be put behind bars.

Petition:Dear Mr. CM, I am a person who is politically nuetral. I am also a son, Wife and Father. It is with extreme sadness I am writing this to you. I have read the news in Newspaper and saw the clippings of the girls being beaten up. The scenes are so violent that such a thing hapening to any human being cannot be justified. It was so very disgusting to see the girls running for cover and being beaten by Goondas in public vicinity, with the Cameras rolling. I just want you to look in the mirror and think for a minute and ask three questions below. 1. "What kind of Law and Order situation am I providing to my fellow citizens, who have elected me and send the first BJP government in South India?" 2. "What have these girls done to deserve such a punishment ? My own kids may go to the same pub some day and if they meet with the same treatment from someone else, how will I treat them ?" 3. Do I need organizations like the so called "Ram Sena" to protect the culture of my country and my citizens, when I handle the Law and Order of the State?" If you find the true answers to the questions above, I am sure that you bring the guys (very much can be identified on TV, and the leader has claimed responsibility), arrest them under the Goonda Act/ or any other Act which can provide the most deserving punishment to these guys, and set an example for others to NOT follow-suit. It is very clear that these guys are learning from Thackerey's and use those topics where they get maximum attention from the public. While Narendra Modi is being hailed for his development agenda, you have a long way to go to prove yourselves and I am so far disappointed with your performance as a CM, with the very fact that you are not able to protect Ordinary Citizens, with so many Killings on Bangalore everyday (21 so far in January in Bangalore city alone). You still have a long time to go as CM. But you need to act fast and keep these miscreants at the place they deserve. Hoping that you will take appropriate action and disappoint us anymore by doing only surface level actions from our very in-efficient Police force. Looking forward to some good news from you in the next couple of days. Thanking you. M Krishna

Petition:Dear Chief Minister, In a country plagued by economic problems and social inequalities the administration is hard put in solving multitudinous problems affecting common man.The latest episode enacted at Mangalore strikes at the root of Indian democracy which is being watched and commented upon by all intellectuals around the globe.You would have yourself noticed when you came here last year and was honoured by us at the Balaji temple,that very few Hindu Indians living here, wear the mangalsutra conspicously or even adorn their fore-head with tilak. It is not because we lack respect for religion and tradition, but in a wider world where one could be branded with any external marks of race,religion or caste is abhorred and works adversely in our inter-action in public places and even subjected to physical violence by racists.If some body in our country forcibly engages in enforcing these personal codes, we will hate to be a part of that society which has no respect for individual's choice.What was perpetrated there smacks of Nazism, which we thought died after the II world war.A similar behaviour was evident among the "Dot Busters" in the early eighties here. As the Chief Minister belonging to a responsible party, which one day will rule over the nation, we expected you to come out with condemnation and immediate police action against the goons and parade them in public besides assuaging the wounded feelings of traumatised victims. You have not lived up to that expectation.The next time any BJP leader visits U.S. He will be confronted with contempt and all pretentions of nationalism or patriotism will not wash. Perhaps Congressmen have not still stooped to this degree of degrading behaviour is the conclusion, the intellectuals will conclude.The ball is in your court !

Petition:Attack on the women in Mangalore! This headline has appeared in all the leading newspapers and media - may be in foreign media also. This has cast us- the citizens of Mangalore in particular and Karnataka in general very low in the eyes of others viewing the media or reading newspapers. This is not the first incidence concerning the attack on women in Mangalore. The memories of attack on Church and police atrocities on Nuns are still afresh. The irony of it is that the present attacks are held in the name of upholding the culture. It is left to anybody's guess as to what is exactly our culture, if one is guided by the attacks took place. The people who indulged in these heinous acts and boasting of as the custodians of culture are glorified in the media as having done moral policing. This naturally amounts to support indirectly their mis-deeds. Their acts should be termed rightly as those of atrocities and should be condemned in a deserved manner. It is obvious that they have taken law in their own hands for which there is no room for in any civilised society; this cannot and should not happen in a democratic country like our where Rule of Law shall prevail. Nobody knows what dis-repute or acts of immorality the girls were indulged in the pub, that tantamounts to tarnishing the culture. Neither the organisers i.e. members of Ram Sena are specific in so far immoral acts concerned; neither is there any eye witness to describe the crime. Then, does it mean that visiting pub by the girls does amount to immoral act in defiance of the culture? It is not the time nor the issue to discuss the subject of morality attributed to the visit of girls to the pub. The concerned authorities (not the Ram Sainiks)would take care of various aspects involved.What really matters right now is the shame wrought on the society by these hooligans - Ram Sainiks in the name of upholding the culture in the name of morality but essentially causing atrocities on the girls. One would have naturally hoped that the Government would act swiftly. There is no denying the fact the Chief Minister of Karnataka has vociferously expressed of bringing the culprits to the books. But the statement of Home Minister an Police authorities are not befitting the occasion. It is irony that the so called moral police are hiding fearing arrest and police action. Had they been sincere in upholding the cause of culture, what prevented them to roam freely and continue such self styled acts. Obviously they are guilty conscious and obsessed with fear of legal action. Similarly a section of the people at the helm of the affairs of ruling the State are found to be finding fault with media and the opposition parties. This naturally doubts their credentials in so far as bringing those hooligans to the books. Certainly it is an act of dis-repute and shame and it is high time the entire society acted in unison forgetting political, regional, religious and other parochial afflictions.

Petition:It was quiet shocking for me to see such an even happenning in public. Why didnt the pub management act immedeatly on this? Every time such an event takes place, the media comes into action and its a hot debate every where, but the sad part of it is: There are only speaches, discussions and debates, but where are the actions?. You cannot blame the government, You cannot blame the City authorities, its we, the people have to be blamed for it, because learning good behaviour and acting as a social being in the society. It is the people who make the society and not the government, the government is part of the society. So every one within the society should be guilty for producing such unhuman beings. Mothers should take pro-active role in shaping their children, imbibing them with good thoughts of action and educating them to be a responsible citizen. Make a change at individual personality level and you will see a change in the society, because you are the society. The Government should also enforce strict actions against the people involved to curb such a mishap again. You change to be better and you see the society chaning itself.

At the same time I am equallly concerned about morality in Mangalore. Mangalore has a floating population over 40000 . We are against "Improper dress" and Immodest behaviour. Mangalore is regarded as heaven of bachelors. It is not good. There is something wrong in the cultural arena. The land of Mangaladevi should not become a destination for sexual adventurists. I think Sriram sena has done a good job by making an awareness in the people regarding their age old culture and values. Money is not everything. Culture is very important. India is a united nation only because of it's culture. We should cherish our values and preserve our culture at any cost.For that a little bit force can be applied if it found necessary.

Petition:When goons take to the streets what chance does a civilised society have? What justice can we expect from persons responsible, will the elected government take action so that this is never repeated again? I am ashamed that this could happen in India. What right do these hoodlums have to decide what is moral? How could they touch these defenseless women? I can see how they must be treating their mothers, sisters and daughters at home. If man stoops so low to further his politics, we have very little chance. Who needs enemies when we have such ones at home? They should be whipped in public. Would they dare do this anywhere else? Would they dare to do this alone? Bullies and cowards, you have no place in India. And if policemen and politicians do not do their job, they should quit their positions. Think of your daughters, men in authority, how would you feel if someone were to do this to them for a reason that suits the perpetrator? Do what you are paid for, do what you have been elected for.

Petition:Every citizen should abide by the law of land and governemnt is reponsible for law and order. At the same time we should not forget the fact culture is something superior to laws and law enforcement. It is impossible for any government agency to protect all our womenfolk in the entire country. They are protected by our culture. If there is no culture and civilisation, women are vulnerable everywhere including inside the four walls of their home.The message from Sriram Sena must be looked in this context. If their members committed any excess they should be dealt with accordingly. At the same time we should always cherish our values and culture and the laws must be amended accordingly. Roaming naked or half dressed cannot be a fundamental right.

Petition: The Mangalore incident can only be described as an act of terrorism (the systematic use of terror especially as a means of coercion). Mr Muthalik has justified the actions of his party workers and termed it as a minor incident and has promised to continue along these lines. The Sriramsena should therefore be classified as a terrorist organization and the necessary action should be taken against Mr Muthalik and his party members. Incidents such as these are increasing at an alarming rate and a very strong message needs to be sent out to anyone who thinks they can dictate their morals on others forcefully. This case should be fast tracked and the sentencing done as soon as possible. The role of the media should also be thoroughly investigated and if the incident was staged for their benefit they should be held accountable. For the record Mr Muthalik and his goons do not represent my culture and I'm as Indian as they are. I am morally outraged at the use of Shri Rama's name for a party of women molesters.

Only when there is outrage highlighted through the media the same parroting goes on - "we have arrested 5, 10 ...or so." and we know the fate of those arrested jailbirds . they happily go to the jail only to be treated so well that it is a privilege for them to be there for a while.

Petition:When a female journalist called Soumya Vishwanathan was killed in India'a national capital, the Chief Minister of Delhi Smt Sheila Dixit blamed the dead female journalist for her own tragedy by saying that she was too adventurous. The Media wholeheartedly supported Mrs Dixit and went gaga over her shortly afterwards, when she won the Delhi Assembly elections. When Scarlett Keeling was raped and killed in Goa and the needle of suspicion pointed to a strong nexus between the Goan Ministers, the drug mafia and the sex racketeers, the media played it very safe by conveniently choosing not to pursue the leads from the investigation. When a 14-year-old German girl was raped by Rohit Monserrate, the 21-year-old son of Goa Education Minister Atanasio Monserrate who is also a powerful political figure in Goa, and the girl's mother was repeatedly harassed and their lawyer was grievously injured in order to coerce him to withdraw from the case, the Media didn't find anything extraordinary in that. When Taslima Nasreen's press conference was rudely disrupted and chairs and all sorts of dangerous objects were thrown at her in full glare of the cameras by the "secular" muslim jihadis of Hyderabad lead by the MLAs of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), the Media didnt at all find anything amiss in that. When Laxmi Oraon, an Adivasi woman was brutally thrashed and paraded naked through the streets of Guwahati, Assam, with the whole police paraphernalia and official state machinery in tow, the Media chose to downplay the episode since, the victim was a hapless adivasi woman from the lower strata of society. The Media felt that since all the above unsavoury incidents had occured in the states lead by Madam Sonia Antonia Maino's puppets, it is all perfectly legitimate and absolutely secular and progressive. Kudos to the Media who are the Real Talibans of India.

Were there not terrorist attacks in India before Mumbai? Innumerable, just because this time they have hit the upper strata of society it has become a larger issue. Similarly is there no violence against women anywhere in India, many rapist and molestors are roaming free on street, ministers son's are being protected for rape charges and but nothing gets reported.

Are we dead as a society. In the past we have always observed what happens when people get arrested and live life king size after that. Is this an indication that if you can beat others, If you can break the law you get all the power? I know soon they will get bail and they will be doing the same thing again. This is the only fear we have with BJP, these kind of so called Moral policing increases, and people start acting this way.

Why only girls, in case they want to uphold culture then start with the men and first and foremost themselves. They should first give up drinking. Start wearing the Dhoti & Kurtas ( no jeans & T shirts ). Alchohol is not part of Indian culture so they should raise voice for a dry state. Portray themselves in true culture & tradition & then raise voice againt any other person. They should be non-violent in all their endeavours.

The West is already suffering from declining birth rates and 50%+ divorce rates simply because women, under the garb of women liberation, have been addicted to a smoking and drinking culture and lost all morals.

Petition:This is simply unacceptable. We are a democratic country, and none of the victims were doing anything illegal by dancing in a pub. The Ram Sena (clearly nothing to do with Ram!) is only doing this for deep selfish publicity. We must NEVER succumb to their goondaism, and the horror they unleashed on citizens of our beloved country, who were conducting themselves peacefuly and in totally legal activities. If they were serious about so called "morality" why only attack the girls and not the guys in the pub? Better still, why not attack Bollywood? Why not 'specify' what clothes all citizens should wear? Simply because.. they understand that these are 'tough' targets, whereas the girls in the pub were 'soft' targets and couldn't hit back at the thugs that assaulted them. Citizens of India HAVE to tell these self-styled (a)moral goondas that this is akin to the Talibans, and they have NO claim to "Hindu Morality" as they call it. The Govt. of Karnataka should clamp down SEVERELY on all prepetrators and also arrest ANYONE claiming that these atrocities are justifiable in ANY manner. NOTHING less than JAIL without any possibility of bail is acceptable, multiple counts of assault and goondaism cases have to be filed, and these hooligans should be in jail till the court gives the final verdict. This should include ALL leaders of Ram Sena (sic) and any other leader justifying this atrocity in the name of so called moral policing. Suresh. Bangalore

I am not supporting RAM SENA when they man-handled those women. In the name of moral police they just over doing too mnay things. That needs to be stopped. But on the other hand if they had raised their concern in a more diplomatic way rather than beating/kicking those women I have would have supported. Let me also say one more thing that there are really too many good things that Indians can adopt from wetsren culture. But in the name of modernity let us not spoil our own culture. This forum is just to make woman drink freely or going to pub. I do not consider it as a freedom for woman. Woman means behaving in modesty in public places and woman's freedom means free from eve-teasers and rapists. In India when a rapist is given capital punishment all Human rights and media come to the rescue for the culprit where justice has been given to the woman. On the other hand when a woman gets beaten up while drinking in a pub forum like this "RAISE YOUR VOICE NOW" comes. Why a forum of this kind was not made when many women in India still getting raped.

Petition:Sir Recently mangalore incident was a disgusting scene, where as we are a democratic country. Where is the independent? The way they treated was not acceptable and it is really goondas and hooligans. They cannot take law into their hands and if so we do not need any government ruling this state. As far as I am concerned they have to be put behind bars atleast for 6 months. They should not go scot free or else have to put Chief ram sena upto 5 years non bailable.

Once this is done, no one will even dare to do such things. Just arresting them and letting them off on bail will do no good. Instead they will be more daring and come out and do the same thing or even worse.

Petition:Jobless, dis oriented youth who have no particular ambition in life usually take up such anti social means to vent their frustation. Its another form of terrorism. A lesser degree of Talibanism. A deep rooted disease this, can be addressed only if the government decides to go into the overdrive. the pace at which this was addressed reminds me of the delay in time the NSG took to arrive in Mumbai. Frustrating! If the govt. can set up deadlines for the public to pay cess and taxes, then the public should also be empowered to set up deadlines for the govt. to address issues and ring in changes. The govt. falls if the deadlines are not met. A bill should be passed in the parliament regarding this!

Petition:Media is unnecerally dragging the issue.. The Real Talibans of India 27/01/2009 10:49:48 Dinesh Krishna When a female journalist called Soumya Vishwanathan was killed in India'a national capital, the Chief Minister of Delhi Smt Sheila Dixit blamed the dead female journalist for her own tragedy by saying that she was too adventurous. The Media wholeheartedly supported Mrs Dixit and went gaga over her shortly afterwards, when she won the Delhi Assembly elections. When Scarlett Keeling was raped and killed in Goa and the needle of suspicion pointed to a strong nexus between the Goan Ministers, the drug mafia and the sex racketeers, the media played it very safe by conveniently choosing not to pursue the leads from the investigation. When a 14-year-old German girl was raped by Rohit Monserrate, the 21-year-old son of Goa Education Minister Atanasio Monserrate who is also a powerful political figure in Goa, and the girl's mother was repeatedly harassed and their lawyer was grievously injured in order to coerce him to withdraw from the case, the Media didn't find anything extraordinary in that. When Taslima Nasreen's press conference was rudely disrupted and chairs and all sorts of dangerous objects were thrown at her in full glare of the cameras by the "secular" muslim jihadis of Hyderabad lead by the MLAs of Majlis Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM), the Media didnt at all find anything amiss in that. When Laxmi Oraon, an Adivasi woman was brutally thrashed and paraded naked through the streets of Guwahati, Assam, with the whole police paraphernalia and official state machinery in tow, the Media chose to downplay the episode since, the victim was a hapless adivasi woman from the lower strata of society. The Media felt that since all the above unsavoury incidents had occured in the states lead by Madam Sonia Antonia Maino's puppets, it is all perfectly legitimate and absolutely secular and progressive. Kudos to the Media who are the Real Talibans of India.

Petition:I do blame the government for encouraging acts of intolerance via violent methods. The recent incident is a reflection of what was ignored in the past 6 months starting from the violence against Churches. It is unbelievable that the central government had to step in for the state government to even acknowledge and take action. The current state government in Karnataka as well as anywhere else in India is incompetent in terms of providing fundamental right to live freely and express oneself. The concept of leadership is lost amongst Indian leaders as their inaction in such incidents is the bane of our society. The same goondaism is prevalent everywhere in our society. They might as well take out the word "secular" from our pledge as our politicians surely don't have the moral ethics, courage and commitment to protect it. At this point i can only hope that the society is sensitive towards the victim and support their recuperation.

The youth who beat the girls were 'Psycs' who are jealous with the high society, at the most they could have requested the girls to wear clothes of Indian culture. Girls drinking beer/wines is no new matter in India, it is happening in India since history. The 'Sena' should be given strict sentence by court & written apology should be taken.

Petition:Rogue organizations like sri ram sene are definitely emboldened by the bjp government in bangalore. Though the government may not by supporting their causes, these organisations have a confidence that they would be let off. Local media channels, - who do not get any value or respect in the public - have also joined their hands with them for publicity. They are desparately trying to catch eye balls. I am sure, they will go with cameras even if their wives and mothers are molested. Because, it is the FREEDOM of media. If atleast 10 people stand up against a 40 member mob, it can make a difference. Because, everyone in the mob is a coward, gutless and sexually frustrated criminal, who has no guts to do anything alone. Sri ram sene members and leaders understand only violence. If all the college students in Mangalore come together (i am sure it would cross tens of thousands), and just march to their headquarters and give a taste of their medicine, probably next time they would think 10 times before molesting a girl. Or they might just get content with someone in their family.

These few good-for-nothing people who want to take up the limelight, forget the basic hindu line that a man shoudl respect a woman and never insult her in public and abuse women in broad day light. I ask where are the women right and human right commision at this needed moment. Today it has happened in mangalore next it might happen anywhere the concerned governments to take action without bias and kill these organisations when they are weeds rather then suffering when it becomes a giant tree like its happening in Maharastra. Who ever may be the person behind should be mercilessly put behind bars and government should take a strong stand against such organisations. We need protection not moral policing. Who is at wrongnow women who were at pubs or so called hindu organisations which insulted women in public. Media people should also be held responsible for failing to inform police about the incident before hand, these cheap media people just to raise TRP's play with mora of a woman, would they have stood and captured the sameif the victim were their sisters or wifes?

Petition:There is nothing wrong in punishing the wrongdoers man or woman. The pub culture should be surely attacked as it is not a civilized thing. Our country was more civilized until the muslims and britishers attacked us and put us back 1000s of years in terms of culture/civilization/poverty. We are still believing that what they taught us is civilization(of course there are some good things we have learnt but that is normal of any culture to have good and the bad and we are magnanimous in picking the good things from them). What we need to learn from western culture is orderliness, commitment, methods and processes built in everything we do. What we should not learn from them is drinking, non-vegism, selfishness(no family concept), cunningness, brutality uncivilized cultural practices like vulgar speaking, dancing, dressing etc. Both men and women should not drink due to health reasons. Especially women should avoid drinking and smoking since they need to carry the baby and it will affect the future generations' health. Having said that attacking women is not fair. But at the same time we cannot expect govt to do everything as they are bound by different peoples interest good or bad.

In India everyone drinks, but hypocrites that we are think drinking is bad. Give the government Babus a bottle of scotch and they are very happy. Yet, they are the ones to shout against liquor. What happened in Mangalore is a reflection of the times we live in. We strive to be a developed nation, but all in all, we are nothing but uncivilized brutes. We are morally corrupt and thus feel everyone else around is corrupt. That is the philosophy which foments groups like Ram Sene, to take up arms against harmless fun. And when did Ram had an edict of harming ladies? These poor souls do not even understand their own religion. And what to tell about our police. It is so true when everyone says, "rather go to a local gunda than a police station". Some goons come and beat up innocent people and the police goes and licks their feet of the dirt they gathered on their ways or stand at some road corner and harass some poor scooterist.

Petition:Hi, The constitution of India guarantees freedom to all its people to conduct their lives, practice their religion and beliefs, and does not differentiate based on caste, color or religion or region. The women of India or the women in India exercise this freedom guaranteed by the constitution. They are free to do the work they want, pursue the education they want, get married to any person of their choice, go out and come back at any point of time, visit any place of their choice and there is no judgement attached to this exercise of freedom. But incidents like these raise a question: DO YOU AS THE GOVERNMENT ALLOW THE WOMEN TO "FEEL" FREE? The women will freel free only when you take action - to prevent India from becoming another nation where morals are preached and forced down your throat. Please, if you are in doubt, read the Constitution of India and judge for yourself whether you are doing the right things for the country and its people. Regards Aditya

Petition:Talibanisation of India is not a proper activity for patriotic Indians. Do not play with Ram and his name just because Ram had made Sita do fire test twice suspecting her to be spoiled by Ravana. Now you are suspecting Mangalore girls to do imoral activities and pull these girls by hair. Are you RSS family progeny of Dushshsana from Mahabharata who puled Draupadi by hair? Dalits of India hate Ram and BJP for their making Ram into God. You will get the results of this in the next elections when all dalits will vote against you. Christians already hate Ram sena and BJP for desecrating their churches. Who will vote for you? Muslims hate you for demolishing Babri masjid and the true Hindus are never for you.

How can such a thing happen and why was no action taken immediately? Instead I heard claims of sabotage being made by opposition parties to descredit the ruling government! Disgusting! Give us a break!! Even if that were the case, then the ruling government could have redeemed itself in everyone's eyes, by turning around and acting tough without dilly dalling for a minute! As for the goons who perpetrated this act... 'WHO ARE YOU TO DECIDE WHAT WOMEN MUST DO?' We live in a democratic country which has given all of us - including women - of choice.

First of all learn to respect the society and get treated for your mental disorders, like exhibitionism and wicked characters. Before acting counter moral policing, you try to get councelling for yourself. In my opinions, the drug adict pub goes should be put in to dark rooms till their death so that society is trouble free.

Petition:Referering the above para , i must say, we should not keep silence, since the way how they acted on the situation is Exclusively Wrong. Even i was watching a debate between NGO supporting women rights & President of RAM SENA, The person who was representing, was acting foolishly and was not able to face the situation with appriopriate manner,clearly expresses that, they dont have appropriate sentences to support the action which they have made. RAMA SENA should first find out their motives behind their organisation, THEY DONT KNOW THE ACTION PLAN FOR THEIR business, How should they know that, how to dress women herself, instead of going to pub and beating the women , they should first go to sandalhood and hit the heroins. Since the pubs are declared the pewrsons who are entering must be over 18 years, who are well matured for their ages. Who has given the guts to them to execute this act. In Short this kind of acts must & should meet hard punishments, to prevent the same in future or else they feel thay are winged for next such kind of henious act with some other object. Such act can be similarsed with TALIBAN, where particular group thoughts are forcefully applied on the majority people. The appropriate solution for the current situation is PUNISHMENT PUNISMENT & PUNISHMENT I would appreciate, if somebody gives an opputunity to address the issue.

Petition:Whole heartedly I welcome this invitation to protest against such uncivilized behaviour.Is our tradition is to INSULT AND MOLEST WOMEN? Pub culture was also not there in western societies in the recent past. But things keep on changing with the changing world. I have seen young boys and girls drinking & dancing to modern tunes in a country like Iraq, way back in 1977. The civilised society must protest against such uncouth behaviour very strongly since such fascism is on the rise. Otherwise we shall meet the same fate as happened in Hitler's Germany. This reminds me of a famous saying of a German Reverand, who died in Nazi jail. He said,"First they came for the trade uniniosts;I did not protest as I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the communists and I did not protest as I was not a communist. Then they came for the Jews and I did not protest as I was not a Jew. Then they came for me and nobody protested as nobody was left. Regards S.P.Mitra

We, Indians should respect our own standard of living and appreciate and inspirate youngesters to live with this world class no.1 Hindustani Style of life. No parents will wish to do such practices by their child. So we have to make some compaign in school & College level against use of wines & liquor.

Had their parents taken notice and acted earlier, this day would not have come. Now, let us talk about the whole legality and morality issue that all the leftists/secular wierdos have been harping about. How come no action is taken when a Karunanidhi makes outrageous insults against Hindu scriptures and deities? How come all the Govt machinery is diverted chasing a bunch of Hindutva dudes instead of killing jehaadi terrorists? How come nobody asks why groups like Sri Ram Sena act this way? Fact is, Hindus are scared. They get ridiculed, coerced to convert, maimed, and killed in their own land. Their culture and way of life is in jeopardy. This has been happening for centuries. When they scream for justice, they are asked to shut up in the name of secularism. Not surprisingly, Hindu patience is running out.

Petition: One of the interesting facts to note is that these self styled moral police are talking about Indian culture and moral responsibilities! Can they protest against ANTI-INDIA activities in and around Mangalore or catch any one? NO THEY CANNOT! Potentially because they have no courage to do so, rather they go rampant, hit out and harass helpless girls. Everyone has a right to exercise their right to freedom and lead their ways of life. This attack is simply an unprovoked act of violence by some self-styled goondas for whom the only opinion on moral conduct that matters isÖ THEIRS! I hope the women, human right activists, student activists, everyone wake up and fight for their rights, protest till they are brought to book before political parties start playing their cards and dilute the issue. It is agonizing to see political leaders of BJP comment that this is a small issue. I fail to understand if BEATING UP WOMEN a small issue in this country, then what is the extent of irresponsibility these Politicians can stoop to? These people have no place in this society and should be brought to justice; the punishment meted out to them should be so harsh that others will think twice before they attempt such heinous acts again. If nothing is done, it will only lead to further distress and more such acts will continue to occur and prevent people from leading their lives. Being one of the worldís largest democracies, we must take pride in our plurality and respect the right of every man and woman to lead a life of their choice. Only then we can truly achieve progress.

Petition:There is only one way to react to this monstrosity of "Ram Sena" volunteers. First of all, the name "Ram Sena" is a total misnomer. If they had even understood 1% of what Lord Rama stood for his principles and values, these "Ravanas" in the guise of "Rama Sena" wouldn't have committed such acts. "Ravana Sena" is certainly the name they should be carrying for their group. Responding to such vulgar behavior in same manner (hitting, throwing, breaking) will just strengthen such causes - so please don't use the same medicine/poison used by the perpetrators. Take every step, using every means - Media, News paper, TV Ads, Bollywood stars, spiritual gurus - anything/everything, to catch all such VHP/*Sena/radical organizations' attention, highlighting only one fact - By resorting to such actions, they are becoming one and same as their much hated/despised cultural opposites - THE TALIBAN.

Petition:To whom it concern.I am from Thailand and I am really shocked on viewing this horified actions on the news channels. I fail to understand what the Central Govt. or State Govt. is doing? We cant blame this to any plitical party like BJP or it allies like RSS or Bajrang Dal, etc. Its not happen for the first time. Few years back, Bajrang Dal had done the same thing on Valentine Day. Our Central Govt. had failed to take actions against these hooligans. People like Raj Thakarey, Munna Bajarangi, etc are openly challenging the Writ of the Govt. and our Govt. is doing nothing. This really encouraged these people to do again and again. If no stern actions are being taken against these people, days are not far when our India becomes FATA of Pakistan. My suggestion is that the Central Govt. should pressurize the state Govt. to take some concreate actions. If the State Govt. fail to take any action, Central Govt. had all power to take actions against these hooligans which will definitely appreciate by all the people. Its the duty of the Central Govt. to protects its people. I am Hindu and I really feel proud of my religion. But these people are giving bad image of Hinduism.

Petition:First let me state that I DO NOT condone the self appointed moral policing and bullying by the Sri Rama Sena. They would have better served their and Indiaís cause by working against the evangelican assault of India. All they are doing is driving the ignorant, self flaggelating Hindus into the arms of the anti-Hindu forces that are entrenched in the ELM. But what is amazing is how this one incident has been taken and re-spun as if the whole country was under serious threat of take over by the Sri Rama Sena. Excuse me, even in Pakistan which is for the most part already under the direct diktat of the Taliban you dont see this whipped-up paranoia. How come when Tasleema was assaulted by elected Muslim goons at a public function in Hyderabad you, the Indian Govt and the rest of the ELM never felt so outraged. Perhaps because she was attacked by the converted descendants of the This kind of goebellian, artificial, exaggerated, 24 by 7 assault on Hinduism is typical of the ELM under the Vatican government at the helm in New Delhi. So I am using this forum not to protest against the lesser evil of Sri Rama Sena's flawed moral policing but against the treacherous attack on Hinduism by the Talibans of the ELM.

Petition:Dear Cheif Minister, This is to tell you that we have had enough of this hooliganism from offshoots of political parties like the Shiv Sena, the Navnirman Sena and the Ram Sena and a host of other Sena's and other organisations who use religion to supress the Indian people. These people cannot control our lives. For us there is only one Sena and that is the Bhartiya Sena(Indian Army). Let me remind you that this is a democracy. If you fail to heed what the indian people have to say now. We will remind you during the elections with our verdict. Misuse of power to try and supress the very people who have elected you is not acceptable. Hope you have the good sense to heed this request now as later this could turn into a storm which could be very difficult for you to handle and could result in total decimation of the politicians who practice this dirty brand of politics. These people should be summarily punished in public and an example made of them to others, so that others dare not take this path in future. Yours Sincerely An Indian.Terence Lewis

This kind of trend is simply suicidal for the society at large and people who resisted it should be applauded by the parents of those girls.Moreover, if there was some physical push, it was ought to happen because if they could have approached by folded hands to leave that venue, I am sure, those girls could have not.

Mind it, they are concern about the people, but the seat. However, I strongly condemn the incident, but the people responsible is using the name of lord Ram, which is objectionable. The culprit should be shoot at sight, no excuse. If they are justifying their act, as against the illegal activities of women, it cannot be acceptable. They are women, they cannot resist. If you want to fight, fight with the enemies, they will certainly kick you back. But not on the innocent people.

Points: 1. youth need not learn culture from Siva sena or Rss or Bajrandal etc 2. government authorites need to mention the mode of conduct in pub and ethics concern 3. dont give law to the activists 4. forth coming valentinse day (lovers day). If GOVT OR ITS AUTHOURITES are interested to observe the mode of conduct let them appoint and give guideline before the event. We dont want these activists once again repeat same mistakes and lay hands on the youth and spoil the atmosphere 5. women concern let government and law decide the mode of conduct not by the activists. 6. youths must be respected and taught with love and affection and not with fear and tension. 7. let there be charity. 8. activists should give up the mind of taking law in to their hands 9. activists must respect law and government. 10. love and respect all religions equally

Petition:Dear sir It is very shameless act done by Shri Ram Sena Terrorists. It is not new affairs or act committed by these terrorists. Every day is the same story. Women in every religion is having dignity and respect. In Islam she is having highest point as Fatima, Aisha, in Christian she is worshiped in the form of Mother Marry, and of course in Hindus she is worshiped as Sita, Radha and on. This is not first time what is happed in Mangalore. I want to remind the incidents of Gujarat several muslim women were gang raped in public what a shameless act. Even a pregnant woman was gang raped. A woman in very sympathetic and pitty condition still she had gang raped. What happed in Orrisa a Nun who has peak dignity in the society she was gang raped by these so called Hindu protection force like Bajrang Dal, VHP, RSS. That is not enough she was forced to move necked in public. Just to create fear and panic amongst others.

If so, why shouldn't these perpetrators also be treated the same way as 'terrorists1" Why are they given preferential treatment of being arrested (if at all they are) and then being released on bail - leaving them free to go and spread further terror and destruction. Who has appointed them to decide what is right and wrong? what is decent and indecent? Does our culture teach us to molest women? What culture are they talking about? If you want to reduce this - have the political parties these 'moral police' represent pay for all the damage they do, out of party funds - that's what will hurt them!

For last three days they are running a campaign against Hindu Culture saying that hindus should be ashamed because some goons have attacked a pub in Mangalore. The goons have thrashed the drinkers in the pub. They have taken the name of one organisation 'RAM SENA'. My question is straight :- Did media reacted same way when attacks took place on Akshardham Temple in Gujrat ? On Hanuman Temple in Varanasi etc? Hindus were raped in Kashmir, Swami Laxmananad Saraswati Killed in Orissa ? Train was burnt in Godhra ? ------- NO ------------- The Ram Sena People will face the court of law as they have attacked a pub, because they have taken law into their hands. Why real issues are buried ? What people of Orissa think about this type of miscampaign against them? What people of Gujrat think about the National Media ? Why Media is not able to discuss about the danger the country is facing ? Our country has faced partition in 1947 because of this type of mentality. Part of India has been taken away in the name of religion. The same process is being followed by media people. -WHEN MEDIA WILL BE FREE OF DISHONESTY-

Petition:Dear Chief Minister, The philosophy of the Sangha was to create a Hindu Rashtra and the dream of Akhanda Bharat, or so as I know it from the years that I have seen it closely, through the eyes of my Late Father.Hinduism is a way of life, which has gained from all kinds of beliefs that it came across, and accomodated the good out of them while rejecting the rest. But never once did it occur to me that the elements who have originated from the Sangha school of thought would be ill equipped to deal with a democratic ethos and values!!! These and all others who disagree with the so called erosion of moral fabric, loose virtues etc. etc. can always raise their voices against the same in a very Gandhian way, and not try to enforce their thoughts or value system on others in such undemocratic and decidedly goonda method. After all, the evils of liquor and womanizing have always been there. But they have always been looked down upon and people at large don't indulge in them at India. What then triggers such violent reaction when such things have been around for centuries?!!! There is no room for violence in our society. These elements who take law into their own hands, and preach intolerance, against our National Virtues of pluralism, democracy and tolerance for others' values and beliefs, MUST BE BROUGHT TO JUSTICE, AND FAST. This alone can restore confidence in the minds of people who have elected you and your party to the high office. In an educated society the expectations from elected representatives are very high. Please don't bely those expectations, as the younger generation is in a hurry to change India, and will not forgive non performance. Please read the writing on the wall, as the media will never let them forget. PLEASE DO THE LAW ENFORCEMENT IN AN EXEMPLARY AND PATHBREAKING WAY SO THAT NO ONE DARES DO SUCH A THING AGAIN. JAI HIND.

Petition:Will you really forward this message, then here it is: While violence against women is not acceptable under any circumstances, i think the various 'liberals' with deep pockets and bohemian lifestyle should not be allowed to impose their western value system on us or on our society. After seeing Western TV sit coms, where 'freedom' often degenerates to depravity, disrespect for parents, teachers and elders, I have no sympathy for the miniscule portion of our society who thinks these kind of 'values' are to be followed and anyone who opposes are hoodlums. While punishing those who use violence against women (these include those who attacked Taslima, against whom, unsurprisingly, these 'liberals' dare not raise their voice), ensure our value systems are not insulted and abused by those who think they know best just because they have money and power.

Petition:people of this coutnry are neither comfortable with the modern women who are behaving in an unacceptable manner in the hindu society nor comfortable with the people like Sri Ram Sena who are doing moral policing. Sri Ram Sena people should have filed a case on the illegal activities being carried out in the pub. They could done some demonstration in the city to let people know about the happenings in the bars and pubs. They could have opted to violence as a last resort if police and govt have not reacted properly to check such acts in the city. Taking law and order into their hands is really not acceptable as they are hurting the basic rights of the citizens of this country. Else the intention of them to stop such acts and making the youth behave in a cultured way in the society is acceptable. I saw some women talking in the television channel that, they can booze, they can smoke and they can behave in the manner they like. Then why women in the Hindu society and in India should be seen so specially. Why they should be given more respect. Why they should be given reservations. All men and women can are equal at work and enjoying the rights. But as a Hindu and Indian, we have got some ethical code and respect for Indian women in the minds of all people is at great heights. If some women is going against that and talking in favor of such bad acts is condemnable. Not many people are happy in the way media is projecting such women who speaks nonsense in the name of modenisation, westernisation.

Political parties investing they strength and power to disunite the unity and investing as a boon when these incidents take place to guard the chair. If our Karnnataka legislative body really wants the good of the people (Even India it is the same) First do not shield the law breakers irrespective of language,Faith, Culture and irrespective of which wrung(social standard-False image)they come. In democracy what one should eat,drink,dress and whith whom one has to dine is not my neighbours duty.There is freedom for the individual why one has to intercept in others field? Give the police clear free hand by forming the rules that are applicable interms with the changing times and situation. To comment on "when asked our Beloved Ex-prime minister Vajepai: why sir you did not get married? when cows are freely availble why to tie the cow for milking?" In other words I say which of all these Bajrang dal,Shiv sena,Ram sena or VHP or for that matter all our Indians do not drink? Ask Mr.Vajpai and Advani or for that matter Yedyurappa,Bangarappa or V.S.Acharya-The sale of Alchohal not gone down when choicest ones are served for all these dignitaries and the highes is drawn to the treasury.So let us not be "Cat that became sanyasi",day time give lectures and at the sunset be part of the crowd.If nation or our state has to be saved from all these atrocities do not give rise to thes unhealthy groups of any wings that distort the image of our unity.

Petition:Respected Sir, At the outset I personally like you very much because you have started your political career in a very humble way. And It gives a good feeling such a honest and a dedicated hindu person has raised to such a stature. Infact its so nice to see so many developmental programmes which are implemented and also a follow up being done regularly. In this kind of scenario Karnataka especially cities like Bangalore and Mangalore have been gaining a good momentum in terms of development. So the incidents like the recent humiliation to women in Mangalore is a big blot to the wonderful governance. It not has only degraded and humiliated the women but has also curbed their fundamental right. I do not feel any organisation in the name of Hinduism should tarnish the image of BJP rule in the state of Karnataka. Whats the difference between us and any other uncultured countries not to name them. I therefore earnestly request your goodness to personally look into the matter and get the culprits to books. This should be an examplanary action to any organisation or an individual who takes the law into his hands. These are black marks for the Shine Karnataka campaign. Thanks.

But what has happened in Mangalore is 'shameful' to say the least as these goondas have manhandled girls for supposedly being in the Pub and dressing on their own.

People in this very progressive and prosperous town are very forward looking.As it is unbelievable that this has happened at this place, it is all the more condemnable.

Petition:Shri Ram Sena, Shiv Sena, MNS, VHP, RSS & all other self proclaimed anarchists should be axed out of the political system & our surroundings completely. Let the CM not take us for granted. Let him not forget that we live in a democracy & we have the right to do what ever we want to do as long as it's legal & dosen't cross the limits of modesty. I'm a Mangalorean & so is my wife & our extended families. We will NEVER advise anyone to go to Mangalore to visit that place nor to invest any money. I feel ashamed to call myself a Mangalorean. We live in a free world but what we saw was sheer brutality. I salute Pawan Shetty, the only man who had the guts & balls of steel to stand up to a bunch of communal cowards. If only we the people could stone the leader of Shri Rama Sena to death publicly serving a proper & fitting reply to all the parties mentioned above that anarchy will NOT be tolerated. These idiots have misused & put a shame to revered names like Shri Rama & Shivaji. Chief Minister B S Yeddyurappa, please wake up to reality & get your act together as tomorrow it will be your daughter/mother/sister/wife. Please show us that you are a man as women are still braver as in the case of Zoya, one of the victims. Hats off to you Zoya.

Petition:Violence is bad. Violence on women is worse! It shows complete lack of respect towards fellow human beings. They have not taken law in their hands they have violated the law. With ample video footage available these people should be immediately punished. Justice delayed is justice denied and this is encouraging people to resort to uncivilzed behaviour. These people should be sent to reformatory schools for 1 year and made to mandatorily work in the villages and slums for another one year. This is shameful for the nation and this shame has been brought upon us by the ineffective police and inefficient judiciary. I hope to say proudly, Jai Hind.

Petition:Please do stop selective journalism.There is no second thought that the mangalore incident is a shameful act.However the way media is giving coverage of this incident seems to have some hidden agenda.I dont belong to any political party and I am a common citizen of this country . But seeing the way media is behaving these days( Not referring to this incident only) , it seems like a new kind of mafia is emerging in this country like the mafia of politicians, Babus, criminals.No, i am not saying that all the channels are same. There are some good,balanced,sensible journalism by channels like CNN-IBN, NDTV,TIMES NOW ( however Times Now behaves sometimes too impulsive and it looks more than a police station than a balanced journalistic analysis). Just look at the way some of hindi news channels ( Except NDTV ) do offer crap to the citizens. Media is a strong medium to create public opinion and shape up the intellect of soceity. But it seems these channels have forgotten everything in the race of TRPs. they are feeding garbage to the masses and unfortunately these masses do trust and beleive whatever they say.Irony is that no matter what no other channel will ever report any kind of criticism related to other channel. they all have created a cartel and the people now slowly understanding this.Though media has played such a positive role in recent times, but that is only by few channels catering to elite. The masses are only exposed to sensational journalism by irresponsible channels . There is no apex body in media to control the conduct of respective channels. Is there anybody where I can complain regarding what media is showing? Can i lodge any complaint? Can anybody take action on why some of the channels handled ARUSHI MURDER CASE in such an irresponsible manner? No wonder, this freedom is seldom used with responsibility.These channels feel they can show anything without any moral responsibility. If media truly beleives in bringing change then lets create a interactive plateform . Real issues are there hitting badly the rural india. Hardly any journalists visit there and highlights the real issues. They find it too hard to give up the metro comfort of their studio and cozy comapny of me ..just a matter of time...most of media people will be equally or more corrupt than these babus...blackmailing and extoting money from the victims. Lot to say...may be i will someday find right medium wherin i can say what i feel like saying....till then ..i kw even this mesg will go unnoticed....

Petition:This is really outrageous. This should never happen again in our country. This has gone way too much, and touched the very fundamental of human freedom. Many people in responsible positions are saying that this is a small incident and trying to brush it aside, which is totally unacceptable. If they can not guarentee the security of free men and women, they should reliquish such positions immediately or should be forced to be out as this is so fundamental. This should be pursued to the very end and the guilty should be punished. I think media and fee men and women in this country has a larger role to play in protecting our freedom and making sure that justice is done. I would urge the media to keep track of this incident on a daily basis with the current status till proper action is taken against the guily.

Petition:Whats wrong in attacking the pubs and beating them??? You may call it a attack on freedom etcÖÖIf thatís the case, then why we are attacking the terrorists who are trying to destroy our country??? When that is wrong, this is also wrongÖ Any country will be recognized basing on its culture, which is one of the major recognization aspect. When we are attacking and killing the people who are attacking the country, the samething is being done by these people, to the people who are attacking our culture and spoiling it. When the first one is not wrong how the second is wrong??? You may logically orgue that this is not your responsibility and government should take action on any of these. Agreed. Fully agreedÖ. Then can we, as a common citizen, stay cool and calm on terrorists also, even when we see any of their activities also, thinking that its not our responsibility and govt will take action against them. If this is acceptable then we can say these guys did wrong by attacking the pub. See, we are living in a secular country, where talking about the majority is called communalism. Where as talking about all the favours about the minority is not communalism. Its called secularism. What its leading into???Its leading the people of the majority to shift to the minority to get the benefits. A small example: In this country, an IAS officer childern who belongs to an SC catagery are treated as minority. Where as the poor hindu childeren are treated as OC. Where is the justice. May be irrelavant to the woman aspect. But the point to be noted, to highlight the justice we are been doing. Now coming onto the women attacking. Pl. do note that its just not to the woman they attaked instead they attacked the pub and beaten the people inside the pub, which includes both women and men. Then why these guys attacked the pub and beaten them? Who are they to do soÖÖBefore putting my further comments: Pl. do note that I am not a member of RSS or Bhajrangdal or any other so called communal forums that are existing in india or abroad. I am just a common citizen of India who is writing this letter. For the information, I hardly goes to the temple and never attended any of the religious functions my this 32 Yrs life as a Hindu. And I am having belief in God. Now coming to why the attack is justified. Can you tell who is the controling authority for Muslims and christians to decide what they can do and what not??? All of us knows that. So in their religious matters these controling authorities are having great control on what they can do and what they cannot do. Then can you imagine, who is the person in the world who can control that for Hindus??? We canot name anybody. Hinduism is given the people somuch freedom that they can do all the good things in life and live in god. Because they donít want to put restrictions on the persons life. Hinduism gave the rules and regulations to the people and expected them to live as per those. But no central controling authority. And I am not saying that all the initial rules given are good. And to your notice it undergone many changes from the inception of those rules. But what the new generations are doing??? They are feeling the western cultures are good and going in that direction and spoiling our own. They are going in the direction in which the lover culture is treated as the life. And there are many other elements which are encouraging this and adding fuel to these. And the safe heavens for these lovers are the pubs, which provides an environment where these people can do anything that they want. And the final results of these behaviours are the incidents that we are seeing in now-a-daysÖÖa lover killing another and all other rape cases and murder cases that we are having now. Whose fault is that who has to control that to happen. Itís the fault that caused due to the freedom the people are getting at young ages. Now they are getting the exposure to the other westeren cultures and the same they want to have in our country. This is very dangerous. I will narrate a small experience of mine while proceeding before. Last week, when I am traveling in a bus from my native to some other place, I happened to see a couple also travelled with me in the same bus, on the other side of the bus. I seen the lady at the time of giving sending to her parents and sister and boared the bus alone. And at that time, the guy who later sat beside her sat in another seat at the rearside. My impression on the family is good as all are well dressed and educated(it seems). Then when the bus started, the guy came forward and sat beside her. Then they are talking so closely that they are well known to each other. Its confirmed that when he spoke to somebody through her phone, may be some common friend. Then the whole night was, they are doing manythings in the bus itself. (Its night time and its Volvo. So the bus guys provide the blanket to protetct from cold, but for them it provided the shelter for their ugly or unethical things). And in the next morning, he gotdown the bus some where and she got down some other place as nothing happened. Where is the moral in this? What is the kind of meturity this is??? By all means, if she get married to another person, with what moral she can spend her life with the other person??? And what faith that guy will be having on this lady. And by all means, if he came to know about all these earlier so called love stories, what will happen to their relation. And we are seeing similar cases now, in all the places. So there is a necessity to protect our cultural valuesÖIndia is treated as the best for our cultural values. I visited Europe and USA and the regards they are having on our cultural values is extremly great. They praise us for those values. Now the western cultural people are spoiling all our values and believe me at that age, its very attractive. We need to save our cultural values from this indirect attack on us. Somebody has to start this leadership to change. This is precisely, a mother or father guiding their childern when they are doing something wrong. When that is not worng, this is also not wrong. May be the western effected people or the media might call it as communlism. But Its not communalism. Saving our own by any means suitable is not communalism. And we donít need anybody support to repair our own house. Many aspects to write, but time is not sufficient. As a person who is having full regards towards my own culture, I strongly support these. But my only suggestion to them is that: Explain the reason why they shouldnot do such actities. So that atleast they can understand and will not repeat instead of just attackingÖÖÖ.Jai Hind.

Petition:To say that the assault on the women in Mangalore perpetrated by the Shri Ram Sena goons was a dastardly act would be an understatement. To make matters worse and even more reprehensible, we watch the Karnataka police and government machinery standing by as mute spectators. And Mr. Muthalik says that he was on the right track and the only fault was that his "boys" went a little overboard. What shamelessness! Th Karnataka CM must ACT right away. When he took oath of office I am sure that he must have sworn on the Geeta that he would uphold the constitution. And as far as I know, the Indian Constitution does not mention anywhere that so called messiahs and protectors of Indian culture can take the law into their own hands for any reason whatsoever.If the CM does not act due to political expediency, I would say that he should be liable to be prosecuted for abetting a heinous crime. So Mr Yedyurappa, Sir, if you want the citizens of this country to have any faith in the political class (which by the way, is non-existent after the November massacre of innocents in Mumbai by terrorists), pull up your socks and go after these hoodlums and anit-social elements with all guns blazing. Or live your life in ignominy and shame. And with the guilt of treason. Because that is what it is ultimately-Treason against the citizens of India; a betrayal of trust that life and limb of every individual citizen is protected by the state in this country.

Petition:What had happened at the Managalore Pub was an attack on the fundamental rights of itizens. Who are Sri Ram sena or any such outfit to decide, what any woman or man should eat or drink or go where ? Who are these people to decide what is right for women ? Any citizen of India who has attained the age of 18 has every right to make their own choices, be it man or woman. The constitution does not discriminate between male and female in this regard. The perpetrators of the barbaric acts at the Managlore pub should be punished siviourly so that, it will sent a very strong message to any such other outfits who are thinking in similar terms, to attain cheap publicity. Also siviour action needs to be taken against all those news channels and journalists who had prior information about the plans of Sriram sena, and deliberately ignored informing the police. Any government who fails to ensure the fundamental rights of its citizen has no moral, ethical or constitutional right to remain in power.

Petition:Organisation's such as the Ramasena, Karnataka Vedhike sanga, Bajrang Dal have to be stopped in their tracks, before it is too late, by Mr.Yediurappa, else the people in karnataka will be forced to throw out the BJP government in the next elections. However much Mr.Yediyurappa and Mr.acharya deny that these groups are not affiliated to BJP, their attitude and remarks clearly shows that these groups do belong to the BJP family. The people who take law in their hands have to be dealt with strongly. Leaders of these groups should be condemnned and boycotted from society by all sections of society. Their family should also be targetted in the same way and their children should be socially boycotted. Then let us see how they feel. They are trying to take India back to the 15th century, which is not acceptable by us. Hence BJP should decide whether it should go along with these groups or to dis-own them. Just dis-owning them is not enough. Treat them like the Dog's that they are and give them the most strict punishment possible. Request the Hon'ble Judges of the courts to to make an example of such people by giving them the severest punishment possible, so that others of their kind do not dare to do such things in future. Schools and colleges should not give their children admission and companies should not give them Jobs. Let them and their families live on the streets like the animals that they are.

Petition:Mr. Chief Minister, What we have seen with the actions of Shiv Sena and Ram Sena are vandalism and hooliganism in the name of preserving culture. 1) What about men drinking and abusing women, is it part of India culture? 2) What about men going barechested and pissing on the roads? isnt that indecent too? Our laws say which is illegal and legal as per our constitution. If people object to any practice they have a right to protest democratically outside any pub but not going inside and abusing women. Tomorrow every group can claim to be the moral custodians of indian culture and abuse anyone. Our civil liberties are at stake. Those arrested should be give maximum punishment to deter others from indulging in such activities. 15-20% of voters are first time voters and another 50% are in age of 20 to 35. About 70% to 80% of the voting population is young and educated who will vote against your party if it fails to take action and prevents such activities in future.

They themselves were looking like goondas. First of all have these people got any principles and morals to advocate them on others. Who are these people to teach morals to the women. In a democratic country every individual has freedom to do anything without jeopardising others freedom. If the government does not bring in a law to severely punish these holy goondas things will go from bad to worse and a day will come when they will stop women going to the theatres to watch movies also.

Petition:The clips on news channels were shocking and frustrating. A group of few people connected to Sri Ram sena attacked girls in bar, harassed them, beat them on the road is purely a talibani act. You can correlate if you have seen clips in news channels few years back in Afghanistan. I think we are heading there if a concrete action is not taken to stop these goons. The surprise is how can is happen and who gives them so much of power to carry out nasty actions against one gender, community, culture etc. what these people are trying to prove - is that they are protecting the culture? So which culture asks to beat women publically just because they cannot defend themselves physically? The head of Sriram sena now say that these girls are like his sister - the coward bastard, when it came to him, these girls became his sisters. Bring his sister on the road and beat them up to teach him a lesson. Also I am surprised with the behavior of police and politicians, why this press conference before arresting him - is he a hero of new born society? Why not beat him up on his way to police station. Few days back some goons threw acid on two girls in Anantpur and next day they encountered - this is the action public want today and you can see that there was no hue and cry in encounter, everyone praised police action even the father of slain culprit. We the people in India are becoming shameless and have no determination to change and voice out. Two incidents in Mumbai where women were molested publically - what happened after that? Nothing - no lesson to upcoming goons. Everyday ransacking northindian, art galleries, college for the name of one language - what is the lesson taught to leader - nothing. Where as a society we are heading to? What value these so called leaders have which can be followed? What is the legacy? And Culture - hahahahah You really wanna see culture - go to developed countries and see how they behave - I have been to more than 8 countries in the world, they have culture to respect women while we have on paper. We might be literate but cultured. This is the need of hour and wake up call for society to grow up with time. A nation without pubs is just a relic. Let women decide what they want, who the hell are these nuts who decide and have no standing in the society. Look at the face of those goons. Looks like they have never gone to school and cleaned themselves since birth. They will teach us culture. ha.h

Petition:Definitely the atrocities against women must be condemned. But I could not understand why the Mangalore incident is blown up out of proportions. Does any of the scribes (female) were bashed? If I am not wrong when one of the TV Crew was shot dead few months back the media has made a big hue and cry. Later what happened? Nobody knows including the TV Channels and Print media also. When there is no safety for young men and women in our Capital (please read they are not in pubs), why you bother about those women who want to spend their money and time leisurely in booz and drugs at pubs? Think about the women who work in villages and get underpaid or illtreated by the landlords. Report about the women who opposed such atrocities. Definitely I also raise my voice in support of them. Most probably the parents of those women who were ill treated at Mangalore will not support their misdeeds. If they support, definitely our country is progressing in the steps of America and we also must be ready to face the consequences like street children, street brawls, killing people for petty amounts,etc.

Petition:Dear Sir, I strongly oppose taking law into own hands .... and more than that I oppose people/culture/mannerisms that incite people to take law into own hands. The pub/discotheque has its own rules of dress code, etc. No one will allow a person in a Lungi inside. Similary the people getting inside the pub/disco should be sensitive to the dress code and mannerisms outside the pub/disco. There is no fire without a spark. The media and others here are talking of dousing the fire and not of how to avoid the sparks. No one has spoken of the measures that the pub goers should take to be sensitive to others beliefs/culture. on the hindsight if going to pub and dancing in low waist is not objectionable, there was no need to blur the girls images on video and display clearly the activists images. This is biased reporting. I strongly object to biased reporting and the way the law was taken into hands by the Ram Sena. It would have been a good way to reprimand them and do GandhiGiri.

Petition:Dear Mr. Chief Minister, For the first time in my life i voted for the BJP hoping that this change will bring about development to my city and state. Alas you turned out to be worse than the previous governments. All your achievements are in paper and nothing to see. I am ashamed i voted for a party that is gradually bringing Taliban culture into my Karunaadu. Shame on you and your party you never reacted in a way which a strict leader of the state should have. Would you have done the same thing if one of your own family members were beaten up like this in front of national television? I curse that your party brings itself down as soon as possible, I dont care even if it means the other parties indulge in horse trading to bring your party down from power but i would want to see your party losing power. The day your party loses power I will be the happiest person. I dont want my karunaadu turning into a place that doesnt respect women. I just read an article where your party functionary Pramila Nesargi said this issue is being politicised. No it is not it is the truth, your party has supported these activities in the name of Lord Rama. Being a follower of the same Lord Rama i never heard anywhere in the Ramayana he had beaten women. Once again I say shame on you and your dirty party. I will ask my family and friends to boot me if i vote for your party again. If there is anything called self respect in your or your home minister's souls you would have resigned by now. Men who hit women are not called men but are called Eunuchs, your Sri Rama Sene is filled with such Eunuchs. When the parents of such people know that their kids are going to pubs, its the amount of trust that they have on you. I have been going to pubs since the last 12 years and everytime i have gone to a pub my mom and dad know about it. Go and tell them that i have consumed alcohol they will outright tell you on your face we know what our son is he will not consume alcohol. That's the amount of trust they have on me. I have a question for your party members who support the Sree Rama Sene and the Eunuchs of the Sene - Have you never felt lust at a woman/man you have seen, have you never seen a nude pic, have you never watched a blue film. If one of them in your party/Sene irrespective of whether it is a man/woman answer no to any 1 of these questions I am sure they need to be in the Himalayas in solitude. Again I am disgusted wiht myself for voting for your party. With absolutely no thanks and no Regards Venkatesh K S

Petition:This kind of behaviour is barbaric. India takes pride in its status as the "cradle of civilisation". Unfortunately, this incident illustrates how little we have evolved while the rest of the world marches on. Instead of consolidating our collective strenght as a nation, it is deplorable that a misguided few should choose to squander their time and effort in dividing society into different buckets to foster an unproductive "us" versus them" mentality. It represents a narrow view held by one group of people who consider it acceptable behaviour to push their bigoted views on the entire country and do not hesitate to use physical force to prove a point. Our response should be swift and exemplary - the government and legal systemm should respond decisively to show that no individual is above the law. Adopting a lenient stance with these criminals will only set a precedent for others to repeat such uncivilised behaviour with impunity.

All those who attacked, do they have any conscience,I doubt. It all sounds so hippocritical. These goons think they can do anything they want and get away with it. Their very action on the T.V. shows that they are perverts who have the lowest respect for women. I would like to ask each one of them, if that is their opinion on women, why do they need women at all for the continuation of this world? If they think they are that smart, let them handle and show us how life can go on without a woman's help in any field. I am serious about this. Let them go first and do (what they did to those innocent young women)the same thing to their mothers and see how she re-acts?

Petition:The incident that happened in Mangalore last weekend was the most disgusting thing I have ever witnesssed in my life. I am ashamed at this section of men of our country. Some unlawful section of men beating up these women considering themselves as the gaurdians of culture/customs is the most contervertial thing I could imagine. Who has given them any rights or authority to behave the way they have behaved and our cutodians of law are so reluctant in taking any actions. This whole incident has not only surprised me but also made me think about where our 60 yrs old independent country is heading to. Today women is at par or even ahead of men in all the fields and still they have been discreminated. Please,I request to our government to take stringent actions against these men and ensure that women safety is addressed not only in this state but everywhere in the country. Don't let these incidents hamper our image infront of the international community. Take some serious actions not only to show but actually do something that noone else dare to even think of doing something like this again. This is the least we expect from our government.

Petition:The fibre of our society is liberal democracy . Unfortunately in a democracy the worst elements of society take refuge behind 3 sheilds - patriotism ( read politics ) , morality & religion . They usually use a mix of these 3 to give vent to their hooliganism and antisocial urges . What happened in managalore is very like the taliban . They are trying to dictate if girls are to go to school in afghanistan and pakistan .Here the ram sena is trying to dictate whether the women of our society should where western clothes or consume alchohol . Next they will dictate the school curriculum . This is democracy and no one has the right to dictate my moral principals . These goons should be brought to justice immidiately and exemplary punishment should be handed out to ensure freedom of the individual.

The defenceless young women were hit repeatedly on the head until they fell to the ground. These terrorists should be arrested and punished. I felt sad for the young women. At the same time I applaud the cameraman who courageously filmed the shocking scene so that the rest of the country could see the atrocities on the women. These are the Taliban of India, who should be suppressed immediately. The beauty of India is that it is a free and democratic country where all are treated equally.

There have been previous incidents of attacking youngsters in parks and restuarants. This should be addressed seriously and such activists and sena's should be banned. Moral policing should not lead to Talibanisation of our country. Girls should feel safe and comfortable in a civilized society.

Petition:Nobody has the right to dictate how another person should live his or her life. If the BJP and its offshoots in the form of the various 'senas' think that they are the guardians of 'Hindu' culture then they are sadly mistaken. Who are they to define what is Hindu culture? In ancient times our women wore much more revealing clothes and enjoyed much more respect and freedom. All these 'immoral police' are nothing but rowdies and goondas who have the support of the politicians. They all appeal to frustrated young men who are waiting for a chance to make trouble. They are just jealous of the fact that today women are much more outgoing and enjoy more freedom. Their own incompetence and the inability of their egos to come to terms with this freedom is what makes them react like this. They need psychological counselling. The Home Minister who always makes irresponsible and immature statements after every such incident should resign. He has no moral right to oontinue in office.

When they knew, this was going to happen why did they not inform the police? Or were the police informed and they choose arrive late as usual? Why did the pub management not take any precaution when the camera men arrived 15 mins before the attack? Can anybody answer these questions?

Petition:Dear CM, From the news channels which I watched, it only appears that this is a preplanned act. to prove this I can say whatever action happened, how a channel could cover extensively, that is before the event. Similar incident happened in Tamilnadu also. With camera technique available in India, Karunadhi was dragged here and there and subsequently with voice addition, it appeared that Karunanidhi was dragged only when other channels proved it was completely wrong, people understood the real act. Likewise in Mangalore also similar thing would have happened. Only in India, Opposition Party means they can oppose anything and everything and if they get any chance, they can pull the legs. All these bad acts are going to end in another few months time when a god fearing and country fearing man will take care of future India after that such politicians will be thrown out by the people. Uptil then we will have to wait and watch such scenes. Thanking you R Murali Bangalore

Petition:I am absolutely enraged at this incident. Are these goons trying to "protect the modesty" of indian women by molesting and humiliating them?? That surely is not the way to guard the so-called indian value system. Not only that, no one has the right to tell women how they should dress and behave. Just because most men are perverts and have no hold over their sexual fantasies does not mean all indian women should start wearing burqaa's, so that men are not distracted. Women should feel safe in a short skirt or a sari where ever I go. This group of uncultured and senseless men who committed this outrageous act should be severely punished. Surely Taliban - like behaviour should not be allowed in India.

If they honesty want to reclaim culture then:- 1. why are they wearing shirts and trousers instead of kurta payjama. 2. why are they putting their point in groups rather doing it individually regularly. 3.why they do not reclaim culture by setting example. 4.If they think hitting people sets the things right then why same action should not be taken against them for committing crime. I wish I could do something for this and i mean it. By choice I am a employee in a private sector and do have plans to get into politics(what I understand is leading people by serving them).

Petition:We have now become used to such news, especially in Maharashtra, due to the screwed mindset of a few. But sadly, it is general knowledge that nothing much will happen to anyone responsible for this act. Everytime we hope against hope that this incident will test the sleeping conscience of people in power, people who can call the shots, and they will use all means to crush such people and parties, so as to make a point that nothing is above law. More than attack on women, it is an illegimate hold on people's lives. The general public is made helpless in front of goons, inspite of the police supposedly protecting us. Politicians governing our cities do not understand that the politics to protect such people is spoiling there own city. Nobody can tell when a small incident left unchecked can catapult into an uncontrollable mess, for which only the people in power will be held reponsible.

Petition:It is sad that these extremist hindu organisations are acting as so called moral law enforcers and have scant or no respect for the modern woman. India is progressing rapidly and women are now in charge of a lot of excutive decision making posts both in government and private organisations. Women are now working in offices doing responsible executive work. A womans only place is no longer the kitchen and attending to domestic chores though all women executives do the same for the sake of their families. Women are also entitled in their own right to seek recreation and enjoyment in order to destress from work tensions and should be free to visit social and public places for the same.It is sad that these extremist organisations think otherwise .. Such attack by the extremist is an invasion of the privacy and freedom of a woman and needs to be condemned. The attackers should be severely punished on the lines of rape, as it is infact a mental rape of the woman.

Petition:At the outset I would like to join everyone in strongly condemning this attack and this kind of atrocity cannot be tolerated. Goverment must take stern action against such outfits. At the same time, Women/girls must dress up neatly when they move out of the house. If they are badly dressed at their home, nobody is going to question them, excepting their family members (father, mother etc). Our women/girls seem to be carried away by western culture and have given up our own culture. If we go to foreign countries, we cannot see any american(women) wearing saree. Our women/girls are dressing themselves in such a way that they draw the attention of people around them. Still there are people who dress up neatly. We are seeing in dailies that girls are being raped publicly by narrow minded people. Inspite of all this, is it necessary that we need to go to pub and dance that too badly dressed. We seem to be giving up our culture. If at all one needs to go for outing, they can go along with her brother, mother or father for the sake of safety. I submit once again that no one should take law into their hands. At the same time we should not give room for stupid outfits to get into this kind of activity. I am only expressing my views and it is not my intention to hurt the feelings of anybody.

Petition:The incidence of attack on women in Mangalore pub is shameful.The government of Karanatka should take exemplary action so that not only the wounds of the victims ameliorated but also we as citizen of India reassured of safety and freedom of living life in public places. Above and all this kind of organisation should be nipped at the bud.

Petition:Such incidents can only happen as because some vested interests indulge.We can start acting now as citizens but what about the politicians.WHEN WIIL THEY ACT.Each act,be it an attack on women ( who incidentally are the easiest to attack from times gone by )terror or any atrocity,is some how connected to a political party. The country is eagerly waiting to see what drastic action the state government will take against these goons or will they forget as some support is received from such political party's by the ruling party.One party happy that they will pin down another party.This is the way it is always.Give an take.But let a politicains wife,daughter,daughter in law be a victim you will see the drastic action that is taken to catch these goons. The Chief Minister should take moral responsibility and step down. ( Wishful thinking though ). The general public should take the law into their own hands and take action as soon as possible.

Petition:Hi, I, till a few days back, was an ardent supporter of BJP because I thought they would do the much-needed overhaul of the security apparatus here to stop any further terrorist attacks. However, now I feel that BJP is becoming a source of a different kind of terrorism. One which is much more dangerous than Islamic terrorism. Islamic terrorism doesnt change the way I live my life. However, moral terrorism might change everything for me. I will fear taking my wife out to a party or to a disc out of my protective instinct towards her. I am ready to fight for this freedom. Karnataka is spiralling downwards and backwards and I shall do whatever possible to stop this. And this shall start with me voting for congress in the coming elections. regards, Deepak

Petition:Maybe its time that we drag out the women in these goons life - their moms, wives and daughters. they should be treated in the same way as the other girls in m'lore. DO NOT VIOLATE any woman's dignity in the name of culture, religion or caste. I hope we have a stricter punishment for these psychos who are employed by madmen to do these acts. and by the way why are they so concerned about women losing morality? dont men lose it when to go to a pub? if they really care for the country please ask them to go and join the armed forces. i am sure theyll be more useful there. and they serve the country too.

Petition:This was an outrageous act and govt. should take action against it. Otherwise such acts would continue . Women should have the freedom to live life the way they decide. How can men decide what or how women should behave. And how can they take law into their own hands. As such there are enough restrictions imposed on women, like after marriage, they have to adjust in their new surroundings and yet be blamed, their parents have no role in their life after marriage, there is no safety on the roads or even at certain work places. I think strong action needs to be taken against the people who took law into their hands to avoid such incidents in future.

I could have done same about my sister ( my sister would neve have gone to any pub thats a defferent point) Show some daring and raise voice about Afzal Guru and Sanjay Datt.

Petition:These politicians who sit back and say action will be taken, we condemn the act, wait till the investigation is over, etc, should get their daughters or wives beaten up or molested by the ram sena holligans. Who do these hooligans think they are to impose what they think is Indian culture on other people. Such people are a shame to a democratic country like ours. Everytime an incident like this happens, political parties start talking about other incidental failures by other governments. Can they ever take action that the agitated public feels is relevant and just.The hooligans who have been arrested should be treated like animals and no human rights should be given to them. They should personally go and apoligise to every girl who was affected and make sure they pay in kind for what they did.

In all religions,all castes,subcastes,all kinds of society whether it is poor,middle class,upper middle class or high class even any state of India no parent or a sibbling will want,allow,like their daughter or sister to dress half naked ,drinking alcohol and dancing in the pub.but still its happening means what kind of brought up by their parents?if someone not getting controlled in house means anonimously will be controlled in public,thats what happened now,obviously the women rights socities should have done this rather than shouting unnecessarily !than males getting disguised with activities of todays girls.!Please remember the bagvath geetha.when injustice and sins reach their heights it will be slaughtered by any means..!.it doesnt means iam supporting the act of those crooked peoples but the real fact lying behind arouses me !those peoples should have moved legally or they should have shatterd those kind of pubs !

Petition:This is outreageous and violent inhuman behaviour.I strongly condemn this incident as this kind actions should not be encouranged at any point of time.It is a republican country and people have their own right to do anything other than illegal.I guess dressing is not a criminal act against beating woman in public.Why India is called a largest democratic Republic and secular country? to make rule for dressing? that is peoples right.. if there is not right to dress to our choice then the base for our country is demolished.It shouldnt be called a democratic country.Leave this.Who gaave the rights to beat others? There is a organization to take care of these and they have the right to take action.I hope the peopleĀ@in the TOP knew everything and hope they are educated enough to distinguish which is right & wrong.But who can save INDIA from the clutches of these evel politicians.

Petition:Why we are working for Congress? Was there any such forum created by rediff for Mumbai attacks.Was it smaller than this? What will you answer to a mother whose son / daughter is spoilt by drinking habits developed within pubs? Were only women attacked - footage shows men were also attacked? By highlighting women being attacked aren't you exposing that we treat women as weaker sex-although women are serving army and air force? Why media is turning partisan and shameless? Why the Govt. is failing to motivate youth in other constructive activities rather than going to discos and pubs?

Petition:Well in which culture it is written that men are allowed to misbehave and beat women in public. This act is against not only law but morally too. Such people should face insult in public along with legal action. It takes years for hearing of cases but such cases should have results in a weeks time so that all such groups learn a lesson before any such incident reoccurs. Why dont such people look at their own house/family members behaviour and iam sure there family members would be worst than the girls assaulted. Do these groups pay for the pub bills of the youngsters or others who visit these pubs. There are so many better causes in which there is need for such groups but these people just want to make it to news with such cheap behaviour. Irrespective of which government is in force there should be separate wing or section in law where some one is trying to force there thinking or ideology on others and that too in a forceful manner, where the action is really quick before people forget it as a routine incident.

Name:Praveen Kumar P
Petition:1. Please close all the pubs in Banglore. Karnataka has highest number of pubs in India. 2. Last week, there was incident of drunk and drive, who killed 4 people. So this kind of pub culture will lead to such incedents and this culture will not make this contry proud. 3. If anybody want to drink, let them drink in their house. 4. About attack on pub is right, but the way it is done is wrong. 5. Freedom of democracy, cannot not be taken granted for doing whatever you wish to do in this contry. There should be a limit for everything. 6. In Democracy people has right to protest, if the government is encouraging pub culture(bribing), it has to be protested. 7. Even police's are also involved in protecting these pubs. So we cannot expect through police these pub culture is stopped. See how the Lokayukta is exposing their black money. 8. Media should not over hype the news without knowing real fact what happend in the pub during the attack. Try to find out the how the pub was functioning there. Do not be biased. 9. There were rape cases in mumbai pub's, did midea showed that. Is that good? 10. Media is encouraging the bad habits like drinking, taking drugs, dancing by exposing, molesting etc. Please Stop this. 11. I am against the way they protested. 12. But firmly say bad foriegn culture should stop.

Petition:This situation has arised due to a complete lack of concern for the law, and the government is solely responsible for this. No sane person would even think of doing a crime if he knows for sure that he'll be severely punished for it; but in this case, it appears that these goons 'knew' that nothing would happen, and so they went about their act. Political outfits like this 'sena' should be nipped in the bud and be banned to prevent such unfortunate events in the future.

Petition:This was disgusting. The hooligans used this as a means to satisfy their own personal urges. They simply 'OUTRAGED THE MODESTY' of women. I dont see any other reason why a sensible man would behave like this with women. Leave aside the discussion of what the women were doing was right or wrong. In a democratic country like India, one is free to choose the lifestyle he/she wants to adopt. Moreover, none of the girls was a minor. But the way the hooligans of Ram sena treated them was certainly DISTUSTING. Who allowed them to use name of 'Sri Ram' and do such disgusting acts. The head of any such so called SENA should be dealt with stringently and be made an example to discourage others from repeat any such act of Goondaism.

Petition:It was a Shameful Act ! When i saw the clips on TV, I felt Disgusted, What a Shame that People of the repulic country cannot enjoy on their own, I just want to tell you that Either we can be a Democratic country or a country which has a Ruler like the talibans. Nobody has the right to impose how people of the country should behave, the constitution is already in place. There should not be a parallel Govt. and moral Police. I am convinced that the attack was not aimed at the patrons of the pubs but for the extortion. These so called Shri Ram Sena Goons must have demanded some sort of Security money and the pub owner must have refused to pay. so instead of getting into Legalities by beating him, they vented out their anger on the innocent customers (many of them Tax Payers).. Since in our country if we call a BANDH, STRIKE, or Create Nuisance in the name of Religion/Culture/National Heritage etc everybody knows nobody in the impotent Govt. will raise the finger. Just Shout Slogan like Bharat mata ki jai, Vande Mataram, Jai Hind, Jai Shri Ram, and you are the Patriot of highest rank and anybody who try to stop is a "Gaddar" or Anti-National.So who wants to call himself a Gaddar hence nobody say anything to these " Desh Bhakts". I feel so disheartened, Discouraged, Disillusioned, sad, Depressed that India which is looked upto as a future Superpower is going back to the times of Harappa and mohenjo daro Civilisation. And you people call Names are ISLAM, Muslims for being in-tolerant. I call these people Cultural Terrorists.Hindutva cannot be forced. It will just give cheap Publicity for time being. history says Hundreds of thousands have perished who tried to Supress the Weak. If PUBS and Discotheques promotes nudity ask these people who are trying to uphold INDIAN CULTURE to stay away from it and let their family members be away from it. And by the way, these goons themselves were looking like drunkards and road romeos on TV... SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!
