Is beating women and insulting them contributes to Indian culture? Again if pub culture is against Indian traditional values, why they attacked only the girls and not the men in the pub. I totally deny that pub culture is against Indian tradition. It is a big lie. All over India drinking is quite common amongst people at the lower level and amongst people of the high society.

Ram sena workers should be punished but drinking in the day time by young women is not the symbol of democracy, the girls also change themselves.

These half hearted religious ultras whould understand that not everyone can afford visiting the pubs and nobody visits it regularly. The number of people visiting pubs, disco bars and dance bars is miniscule compared to those visiting temples, yet it generates more gainful employment then the latter.
