There is hot news among Indian youth at time when Valentine’s Day is just few days short and its the online campaign that some Indian young women have started over Facebook and their blog named Consortium of Pubgoing, Loose and Forward Women. What they trying to propagate through this?.. well, see the Facebook group brief –
Join Us on February 14, Valentine’s Day, the day in which Indian women’s virginity and honour will self-destruct unless they marry or tie a rakhi. Walk to the nearest pub and buy a drink. Raise a toast to the Sri Ram Sena.
The ladies (Isha, Ratna, Nisha & Karishma) wants and appealing to public to send Pink Chaddi (underwears) to Indian extremist called themselve as “Shri Ram Sena” responsible for inhuman act in Mangalore city and ladies’ blog also display their office address to help public to send the gifts at right place.
The Facebook Group has managed to get around 22,000 member at time writing this post and over 1200 of comment on just 4 posts of their blog.
This is an absurd case of action/reaction though the way these ladies have chosen is non-violent and is one of their own way to react, but my question is where is the poised minds who supposed to act or even give their reaction to this inhuman act of so-called Ram Sena in a legal way rather than this crazy campaigns.
On a second thought and might be bit humorous as well, at time when majority of companies/ start-ups in India are failing and to my knowledge there are still many companies in India leveraging zero out of social media & its tools and on other side people like these ladies are using it for protest. This is height of irony and could be well added to case study of social media in India.
