I don’t know how many of you have heard of it but to me it is is first of its kind in India and we certainly need these kind of campaigns on regular basis to make extremists understand that we are united and we definitely respond when someone unnecessary pokes his nose considering himself the GOD and bigger than the constitution.

The campaign is Pink Chaddi Campaign.

The Pink Chaddi Campaign is a nonviolent protest movement launched in India in February 2009 in response to notable incidences of violent conservative and right-wing activism against perceived violations of Indian culture, when a group of women were attacked in a pub in Mangalore. The campaign was conceived particularly in protest against a threat by Pramod Muthalik of the Sri Ram Sena (also spelled as Sri Ram Sena, Sri Ram Sene and Sriram Sena), an orthodox Hindu group based in Mangalore. Mr.Muthalik threatened to marry off and take other action on any young couples found together on Valentine’s Day.
