Sene will not take laws into hand this V-Day, says Pramod Muthalik-1

Mangaluru: Rama Sene supremo Pramod Mutalik has said that the Sene will not take the law into its hands this Valentine's Day, but asserted that the Sene is still against the celebration and will put an end to it.

While opining that Valentine's Day is a Christian festival and that the Hindu youth should not come into folds of an alien culture, Muthalik, while speaking to reporters in Udupi said that if couples are seen indulging into Public Display of Affection, then the Sene activists would inform police and not resort to taking laws into their own hands.

It may be recalled that in the past the Sene members had resorted to violence in many instances and in other instances, the members threatened to get couples married off to each other if they are seen in public on February 14. These actions of the Sene members had evoked sharp opposition. However, this time, the Sene has decided to take a soft stand.

"The Sene will submit memoranda to the Deputy Commissioners across the state requesting them to stop the celebration,” he added. The Women's wing of the Sene- Durga Sene will create awareness amongst youth against Valentine’s Day, he said adding that the Sene is committed to working with the police department in curbing 'unethical activities' happening in the pretext of the celebration.

Ban all three political parties in K'taka

Talking about the political scenario in the state, Muthalik said that all three political parties must be banned in the state.

"It is hilarious to see what is happening in our state," he said adding that the BJP must go to court to prove its innocence in the tape row.

Taking a jibe at the BJP, Muthalik opined that the sincerity and commitment of the Jana Sangha are missing in the BJP and the party is now only pretending to fight for the cause of the Hindus. However, while opining that Prime Minister Modi was an exception, Muthalik also said that the Sene will not contest the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls as it wants to remain away from the 'dirty politics'.
