On Hindutva and the Pub Attacks.

I strongly object to the use of the word 'Talibanization' used in reference to the recent attacks (by yet another 'Sena') on girls in a Mangalore pub.

Let's stick to the right terminology, please. It's not 'Talibanization', it's 'Hindutva-ization'. 

To quote the Chief Militant of 'Shri Ram Sene' (the right-wing, Hindutva organization behind the latest dose of 'Hindu Righteousness')  
"We are working for Hindutva, to save Hindutva"
Good. That's more like it. 

Chief militant, Pramod Muthalik, says that cowardly violence on women was absolutely necessary to 'save Hindu sanksruti'. He added that this was the way they treated their mothers and sisters.

Strange. His goons didn't like they had any mothers or sisters. 

I also object to the use of terms like 'moral policing' and phrases like 'taking the law into their own hands'.

Which morals, exactly? And what Law? 

Ajmal Kasab did NOT 'take the law into his own hands'. 
Afzal Guru did NOT 'take the law into his own hands'.

The Hindutva militants, who are currently enjoying a relatively free run in the BJP ruled Karnataka state are NOT, repeat NOT 'taking the law into their own hands'.

Let's condemn them for exactly what they are:  Hindutva-vaadis.

yeh. use ur own terminology. bush said crusade, not jihad. maybe we should cook up a new umbrella word to replace talibanization. i mean, they all know what they are talking about, but the intention must have been to compare it to what talibanz did to afghanistan. so we need a word for all fundies of all religions seeking a religious utopia.caliphate,hindutvaa,kindom of heaven.

and i think ...by morals they meant those accepted by a majority of indians...and laws.. i dunno..ive heard about some stuhpid law of obscenity thingy in the penal code.

Sri Ram Sena are a bunch of pathological lunatics just like some feudal goons seeking violence and attention in media.

If hooliganism, street violence, moral policing and taking law into their hands are signs of taliban, then let us see who all qualify to be termed as Taliban.


1) Mamita Benerjee dragged a SP MP by collar in Indian parliament. Has not she taken law into her hands and was as violent as Sri Ram Sena in the middle of India Parliament?

She is female Taliban according to the definition applied to "Sri Ram Sena".

2) Both Renuka Choudhury and Uma Bharati are accused of publicly slapping men (we have seen videos), they both are taliban as well.

So, what moral authority Renuka has got? He herself is partly responsible for harassment, arrest of 1,23,000 women with out investigation under one single IPC.

She needs attention, which her father or bf never seemed to have given.

3) Women's organisations attacked arrack sellers and husbands in south India, they are also taliban.

Banning liquor is taken from south Indian feminist text books only.

If liquor is injurious to social life in rural India, then it is equally injurious to social life in urban India as well. One guy being drunk killed 4 people just 3 km from my home in Bangalore.

4) Couple of women's organisations broke furniture in Delhi High court opposing whistle blower justice JD Kapoor's 2003 statement that "Dowry law is misused". A lot of misery would have been averted if these Taliban were arrested and punished severely in 2003 itself.

They are also Taliban.

5) Sri Ram sena called the girls prostitutes.
At 20% of 1,23,000 women were threatened about false cases of "prostitution" in Indian police stations when they were arrested under 498a.

----------
If Sri Ram Sena is Taliban, then Indian Police is also Taliban. Ban Indian Police.
----------

The Sri Ram Sena are just like children in comparison to the violent behaviour shown by Indian Feminists, Indian police and women's organisations.

=========
There is no difference between women's organisations and Sri Ram Sena. Both want to oppose "drinking" by beating up the sellers and customers. Both are Taliban.
=========

1) If a man drinks, he is a drunkard.
If a female drinks, then she is liberal.

2) Drinking in Pub is social service.
Drinking Arrack in village is criminal activity.

3) Arrack sellers have to be attacked.
Pub owners have to be given Ashok Chakra.

Only Urban morons have right to drink and murder people on road.

What a double standard?

=======
Sri Ram Sena has to be banned, because they are Taliban.

Before that ban all other hardened Taliban, who slap men in public, attacked arrack shops, broke furniture in courts, lied and mislead the country.

Ban Renuka, ban Mamita, BAN AIDWA.
BAN Indian police, for calling innocent women prostitutes.

Ban UNICEF. Ban UNIFEM.

If terrorist Taliban Sri Ram Sena and extortinist police and taliban women's organisations are not banned, then people must be allowed to take law into their hands and beat up all these terrorists.

Some 20 women are beaten and molested in Mangalore.

The crimes committed by Indian police and UNIFEM funded feminists on Indian women (also men) are much bigger. Ban them all.

-------

If a male MP dragged a female MP by collar in the parliament, has society reacted in the same casual way?

If a male MP or politician slapped a female in public view, has the society reacted casually?

===========
Crime has no gender.

The social double standards are very clear.
Female criminals get away, where as male criminals are put in jail.

Today, being a female taliban is fashionable. After slapping men, these bitches are giving sermons on civilised behaviour.

Save Indian family
