Muthalik to sue pink chaddi campaigners
Irked by pink chaddi campaign against him following his threat to disrupt Valentine's Day celebrations, Sri Ram Sene leader Pramod Muthalik has said he would soon sue the rights activists behind it.
Terming the action of protesters as a "perverted act", Muthalik told reporters in Udupi that a 25-member advocates team comprising women has been formed to file defamation cases against the senders of "panties parcel".
Rights activists across the country had despatched pink chaddi consignments addressed to Muthalik at his Hubli headquarters on February 14, when the right wing Sene leader was cooling his heels in a Gulbarga jail following his arrest.
In all the Sene chief received 1,500 pink panties.
Muthalik claimed that the outfit's tirade against pub culture and Valentine's Day has brought it into focus. Demands have been to open Sene's branches outside Karnataka, he said.
Muthalik, whose men by attacking women at a Mangalore pub on January 24 had sparked nationwide protests, said on Saturday that the Sene would not take law into its hands and peacefully protest against pub culture.
