Q.

This is with reference to immoral acts by some anti-social elements in the country.India is an independent nation and its ppl can enjoy al d privileges that are rightfully theirs.But today,wen we see hoolaganism and moral policing by those who take d law in2 der own hands n dictate social norms, we feel shackled. V r a democractic country & whatever v do within d law can never b an act of obscenity n no one shld dare deter ppl from enjoying der rights.How long V wld have to pay the price of enjoying our rights in d country to which we belong??

Yup it is time to stop tolerating these groups and so called well wishers. We need more pink chaddi campaigns to shut out such hooligans

Sad indeed! i think, to great extent, we too are equally responsible for this. We are known for our old culture & tradition in d whole world. But 2day we are accepting anything that western countries follows, neglecting its disadvantages. Very 1st the following of western culture blindly should be shunned. Yes, India is an independent nation and its ppl can enjoy all d privileges that are rightfully theirs. But at d same time we need to analyse wat our rights actually are! If we think that going pubs by women and indulged in immoral act is our right, then i must support Ram Sena and their act in mangalore pub.

Because the police have their own compulsions in failing to handle such issues, moral policing in moderate doses is required. I am living near a busy link road and my sleep is disturbed between every mid-night and morning by those honking their car horns while returning from late night parties. Then there are those love birds displaying their affection, sitting on the parked vehicles, and even the laughter club members will raise their volume when some female passes by. In some places the moral brigade was helpful in closing the prostitution racket. So a pinch of moral policing is necessary.

These politicians themselves do not follow the rules they impose on others. Similar scenario applies to Dravidian parties in tamilnadu. Karunanidhi names his son as Stalin but asks people to use pure tamil names for children. Their acts against Hindi is simply sick. The way they now handle LTTE issue is another example. These politicians just use such sensitive issues to gain publicity.

Mostly the SRS, MNS, SS , BD, VHP are the prime culprits. But it also comes to a fact that the people who indulge in moral policing are also youths, who have been propagandized towards an incorrect set of wat you can call social ethics. I have been in Mbai since childhood, these youths of today start of their so called Dharma-Rakshan and then turn out to be Corporators, MLAs of tomorrow. It just bogs down to this analogy that by being a part of some political outfit youths want to earn respect /adulation /achievement in their respective area
