'Pink Panty' Women Target Extremist Right Wing Indian Leader
FOX NEWS ^ | Tuesday, February 10, 2009 | Courtney Crowder

NEW YORK — Women throughout the world — 13,000 at latest count — will be sending Pramod Mutalik a pair of pink panties for Valentine's Day. But these undies won't make his heart go pitty-pat.

Mutalik is the leader of Sri Ram Sena (Lord Ram’s Army) — an extreme right-wing organization in India that purports to be the “custodians of Indian Culture.”

Members of Mutalik's group are suspected of being behind a widely publicized incident last month in which a group of men brutally attacked women in a bar in the southern city of Mangalore — beating them, and kicking them when they fell to the ground. Mutalik was arrested in the attack, but he was released on bail.

Wouldn’t surprise me if this was a Muslim Indian group.

Mutalik’s retort: Saris as return gift

11 Feb 2009, 0326 hrs IST, TNN

http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Bangalore/Mutaliks_retort_Saris_as_return_gift/articleshow/4109302.cms

BANGALORE/HUBLI: RHS president Pramod Mutalik is ready with his return gift. It will be saris as gifts to women who plan to present
him with pink chaddis as a campaign against his opposition to celebration of V-Day. Mutalik told TOI that RHS’s Mahila Sena had already collected 150 saris. “The move of some women to present pink chaddis reflects their mindset.’’

A consortium of ‘Pub-Going, Loose and Forward Women’ has decided to courier pink chaddis to Sri Rama Sene offices. “Instead of speaking at such baser levels on the issue of Indian culture I have raised, it will be better for them to debate the issue at the ideological level. I’m prepared for that. Let there be a discussion across the table,’’ he said.

Mutalik said he will be in Belgaum and Dharwad on Valentine’s Day. But his men will be snooping around the state to look for couples courting. Perhaps, realizing that getting someone forcibly married attracts legal action, he said: “We will hand over the couples to their parents or to the police.’’

Yeah 2008 was a terrible year for Christians in India .Too many churches destroyed and many lives were lost .

I remember one day I removed the crucifix from my neck before heading out to the university .

Not Muslim if the name translates as Lord Ram’s Army.

Right wing is bad or evil. Left wing is caring, considerate and kind. Don't you know anything?

More like the Hindu version of The Lord’s Resistant Army, or the NLFT.

“The NLFT has warned members of the tribal community that they may be attacked if they do not accept its Christian agenda.”

Right wing varies from country to country, although it is usually centered around the preservation of the historical culture of the nation involved. This particular nutbar would be considered right wing in India because his intent is to preserve the traditional Hindu culture in India. Left wingers are almost never nationalists, in any country.

In general, all Indian parties are left wing. The left most is Communist and they have the word Communist in their name. Then you have the Congress Party which consists of crypto-Communists. The Congress Party consists of the successors of their first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru who was a close friend of Stalin and implemented the Soviet model of economy as envisioned by Lenin in India. So you have government controlling the “commanding heights” of the economy. Nehru was also the homosexual partner of Mountbatten which is in part the reason that he was handpicked as the successor to the British without any elections being conducted. Then you have what you call the right wing Hindus but they have no clue about economics and have no interest in economic theories although instinctively they support small businessmen. This they do because of their instinctive hatred of Communists. The reason they are called right wing is that they oppose Muslims and the media in India is pro-Communist. In India, attacks by Muslims are not taken lying down. It is old-world style retaliation.

I have traveled to India and even lived for extended periods there. I wouldn't trust Indian Christians. Most of their stories are fabricated in order to get our money. I used to support our church's activities, but after traveling to India, I realized that Indian churches come up with stories of persecution and feed them to us in order to rip us off of our money. There is an entire industry there which claims that so many churches were burnt down this year. If you ask them to show you the remnants of the church, they will claim that these were really small wooden shacks which were 10 ft by 10 ft in size and they were completely burnt down. I have faced so much fraud from Indian Christians that I have lost all sympathy for them. India is a country where buildings are made with brick and mortar and this story about wooden churches of a very small size when asked for evidence doesn't wash.

Actually Indian Catholics and traditional Protestants and other affiliates are good people, on the whole... better than the average Indian, on many counts, for that matter.

It’s the new-age fraudsters, Pentecostal-types and Doomsday Evangelists who are really wreaking havoc.

LOL. Yeah, it was a bit of a rhetorical question. I saw a documentary on cable a few months ago about Russian thugs terrorizing the countryside. The thug leader's hero was Stalin, and he even had a photo of Stalin on his apartment wall. The documentary called this guy "right wing."

I almost wrote the cable station a letter about it. I wish I had.

I know, because the average “Hindu” extremist, who would know as much Hindu scripture as a block of stone, can’t differenciate between the doomsdayers and the traditionals.

No way ! There was a certain Samajwadi Party catering specificly to Bussiness Interests a few decades ago .
Now Business Houses Prefer to work with the congress Party rather than non - congress ones .

“The Congress Party consists of the successors of their first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru who was a close friend of Stalin and implemented the Soviet model of economy as envisioned by Lenin in India.”

More like they were trying Gandhi's Philosophy . BTW I dislike Nehru he was a communist atheist .

Samajwadi Party

I assume you mean the Swatantra Party (Freedom Party)? The operational word in your sentence is "WAS."

More like they were trying Gandhi's Philosophy .

Economics is one field I can guarantee I know quite a bit about. Indian economy had nothing to do with Gandi's suggestions, but had everything to do with Nehru's fascination for the Soviet Union. While Gandi wanted self-sufficiency at the level of villages, Nehru implemented Five Year Plans and a centrally planned economy planned at a Planning Commission. Five Year plans as well as the Planning Commission were Soviet ideas. Nehru was the one who wanted to nationalize Indian industries. His daughter followed up by nationalizing mines and banks as well.

Nehru has written quite a bit about Gandi's economic ideas in his autobiography and attacks Gandi for favoring capitalism over socialism and seeing socialism as violent.

I don't mean anything at a personal level. In general, I found that there is a lot of corruption in India and the common Indians are the victims of such corruption. I would trust an ordinary Indian over an Indian politician. Similarly, I would trust ordinary Christians in India over the clergy.

Spreading the message of Jesus is one thing, but the exaggerations and claims of churches being burnt are wholly another. Put yourself in my shoes. I give money and travel to India and find out that I've been taken for a ride and that I am not alone in this. There is an industry out there that generates tales of persecution and martyrdom in order to strike a chord with us and it is extremely difficult to describe the rage I felt when I realized that the people feeding me stories were evasive about their claims.

Again, please don't take it personally, if you read my posts elsewhere, you will see that I have been sympathetic to Indians in general except the Moslem ones. It is just that many Indians seem to think that all Westerners are wealthy and they can squeeze us of our money and we won't mind it.

Many ? I think 90 % of the Indians think Westerners are wealthy and they can squeeze money out of them . I am among the 10 % who do not .

I am so sorry that you had a terrible experience in India.
Though such incidences are common . I hope you and the members of your church have learned a lesson . Please make sure you NEVER donate to India again as I can guarantee you the aid will either never reach its destination or will be some scam . We never donated anything to such causes . Anyway - which state in India did you donate money to ?

“I assume you mean the Swatantra Party (Freedom Party)?”

Yeah Sorry ! It's 4:30 a.m. in Mumbai City . I have not slept a wink so I am not even sure what I am saying .

Nehru was a socialist . Gandhi's views were also socialist - the only thing is he(Gandhi) did not favor the kind of socialism that was practiced in the U.S.S.R. He found it violent .Anyway if I remember correctly Gandhi's philosophy was that of egalitarianism .

“Nehru has written quite a bit about Gandhi's economic ideas in his autobiography and attacks Gandhi for favoring capitalism over socialism and seeing socialism as violent.”

Gandhi in his own words - (I am not ashamed to own that many capitalists are friendly towards me and do not fear me. They know that I desire to end capitalism, almost, if not quite, as much as the most advanced Socialist or even Communist. But our methods differ, our languages differ. - Gandhi)

. So Gandhi wanted people to become socialist voluntarily . Gandhi - Nehru - were both leftists. Yawn ! there is no *real* ideological difference in political parties in India . I think I will stay home again this April election .
