Bengaluru – The right-wing Hindutva militant outfit – Banrang Dal – has threatened to attack New Year Celebrations in Bengaluru this year. They termed the celebrations as anti-Hindu and anti-Indian.
The outfit has gone beyond in directly threatening the women folk as well.
“Liquor mafia is targeting Hindu girls and saying that girls get a free entry to the pubs with free beer. Drug mafia is working hard in India. Lakhs of youth will take drugs and wear inappropriate clothes during the New Year celebrations. It is not right. It is a conspiracy to defame Hindus,” said a Bajrang Dal activist.
Surya Narayan of Banrang Dal said, “Alcohol should be banned in Karnataka on December 31. Hookah bars and pubs should also be banned. It’s our demand.”
Over 15000 police force have been deployed in the city ahead of New-year celebrations, while no Police officer has claimed that a ban was been imposed.
Bengaluru’s Brigade road celebrations are unique in the country. There have been mass molestations in 2017, and more Police force to be deputed.
