Udupi: Rama Sene Condemns Rave Party, Urges Ban on Valentine's Day!

Daijiworld Media Network - Udupi

Udupi, Feb 9: Better late than never! A week after what was described by the media as 'Malpe Rave Party', self-proclaimed 'custodian of Indian culture' Sri Rama Sene has condemned the event, and urged district administration to not allow such parties again.

SRS secretary Kumar Malemar, speaking at a press conference criticised the district administration for permitting such a 'half-naked' party in the city. He demanded immdiate dismissal of officials who allowed the organisers to hold the party.

He also stressed that people, specially youngsters should not indulge in celebrating Valentine's Day on February 14. "We should not encourage such foreign culture in our land. Sri Rama Sene is against it, and we condemn all such celebrations," he said.

Mahesh Bhat, Jeevan Neermarga, Praveen Moodigere and Sharath were present at the press conference.

Rama Sene also did not forget to condemn the 'dirty picture' incident in the state assembly by three BJP ministers.

This is perhaps one of those rare incidents where Congress, JD(S), CPM and Right Wing Hindu groups have been of the same opinion!

Demand for Raghupati Bhat's Resignation

Continuing its attack against the district administration and the government for allowing 'rave' party in St Mary's Island, Malpe, Udupi Congress unit has now demanded the resignation of Udupi MLA Raghupati Bhat. Speaking to media in Udupi, district Congress president Gopal Poojary criticised Bhat for participating in the rave party event and for not objecting to the happenings in the party.

Udupi district Congress leaders M A Ghafoor, Jaya Prakash hegde, Pramod Madhwaraj, Aveline Lewis, Raju Poojary, Sarasu Bangera, Mamatha Shetty, Ibrahim Manher, and others were present.

      Dear heads of Sena, and all, you people are crying against VALENTINE'S
      day.Do you know the actual meaning of
      Valentine or Valentine,s day ??? if the answer is not then you must go thru the history and try to understand about it or ask the purity of that word.

      Then your RAVE PARTY , there is no
      relation with the former and it
      may be a get together of drinking and some other immoral traffic
      pro gramme in the name of TOURISM only coducted there.

      Dear Rama Sena,

      You know what.... how much you protest these kind of days.... it will give a negative impact like if u argue not celebrate this day young guns of India(youths) will celebrate more and more, see some people do not even remember these days... Once you give a statement regarding this to media... it will get free advertisement and it will create one kind of Craze among the youths.

      My suggestion for you guys is its better to be quite in thse matters.... Lets allow all of them those who wants to celebrate.... If you do not want to celebrate be quite... and you know what we are in India its democratic country.... you cannot force in this matter.....

      Ban on Valentines days is uncalled for.Valentine's Day is for women! It's advertised to men that they need to do something for their significant other, (but) there is nothing a man wants more than to be wanted! What better way to show it than on Valentine's Day! It's a great opportunity to shake things up in a relationship!

      I can't understand the liberal mangaloreans. When saffron brigade attacks pubs and rave parties you spit at them and blame the administration. When administration supports rave parties under the garb of tourism then also you blame the administration. I think liberal mangaloreans should make up their mind which side they are on. I think the mindset is now of anti-administration regardless of what the issue. The biggest hypocrites in this are opposition parties who see a political mileage of this issue

I don’t know why some people cheer them up well knowingly supported by ministers who always into free lunch. Whoever wants to celebrate Valentine’s Day they will do in public either secret places. There is no such a law. Happy Valentine’s Day in advance.

      please define what a rave party...and do not define it in Indian context for God sake...as you are referring to people from the west. People from the west have a different culture, and this is also seen in places like mumbai, bangalore.

      On a different note, if u watch hindi movies, I would say that has a worst influence, so how is that Indian society does not realize and protest??? that's because it's entertainment!!! well to those who have protest the so wrongly called 'rave' party, correct your thoughts and be a practical saint!!!!! :)

      I saw full video and did not find anything wrong! I do not see anything which connects to rave party! All we can see is people having fun! According to eye witness, there were no proper facility for toilet and sanitization. We cannot provide at least make shift toilets after charging through the nose! They could have rented mobile toilets!! Forget sewage treatment plants...where you need to pay millions to the MLA and ministers...maybe they will watch porn or nap in the assembly after taking million of bribes! Or make few thousand millions by their power!! We can only improve when we get rid of Crooks like falthu Rama Sene who vandalize in the name of culture….where their own culture is debatable which will land below the dignity of any mankind!! Because they are uneducated, unemployed and losing their employers of lately because of assembly episodes!!! This is gift/curse to people who made money and gained power in the name of God and religion!!

      In the name of gods these people are ready to do anything. In the name of cleaning up the Indian culture they destroy the very fabric of its peace and harmony by attacking minorities. We have seen what their party men do in the broad day light in the assembly hall. First let them give lessons of decency to their own party men and then educate the public. These ‘self-styled custodians of Indian traditions’ are (RS/RSS/BJD people) are 100% rouges. Lord Rama is only the excuse and their “Karma” and “Kama” is brought to light everyday.

Why are you using English language if you think westerners are uncultured. Use Kannada man. Don't use computer or mobile phone even. Don't use electricity use Chimny. I haven't seen foolish people like you, who is following western things in his daily life but keep cursing them. I should say those who are against V. Day celebrations are impotents.

      First of all i would recommend that all members /enrolling members to Political parties /Social and unsocial associations like Sri Ram Sene, Bajrang Dal, KFD, Pucl .... should be sent to classes under strict observation of unbiased educationists with support from Police and armed forces where strict moral/discipline can be given to our numerous so called educated as well as uneducated leaders of all political/religious and social organizations along with eager youngsters who want to enter this arena as rightfully, next 10 years they wiil be our leaders and we don’t want 100 more scandals multiplying when they rule.

      The Armed/police force along with teachers, HMs and Principals should be involved to give advice and discipline for further enhancement of their skills in society, as most of them have ignorant views in tackling small issues which in turn can snowball into a wide issue and tarnish, humiliate and bring bad history to families, regions, states and country as a whole. As stated by our own DK in charge minister also in charge of I& T ministry saying he does not know how to forward a message then you can understand how he can head state IT ministry which he is entrusted with. All recent front pages bring bad reputation to the state.

      Let law be passed so that all citizens wanting to join political, social, religious parties/organizations have basic criteria/education and social knowledge to work for respective causes. Let them be educated at state expense so that they can take our state forward and bring laurels to INDIA instead of bringing bad name and fame as shown earlier through scandals, communal riots and moral policing in our state which is taking us backward in all spheres. All wrong can be erased from minds of society through cooperation and equal contribution from members of social organizations, political and religious heads of all communities with main participation of the common man who is the kingmaker who sends someone to the top to look after their needs and views and not the round way. May god give our state a respite from all scandals and bad reputation in coming years?

      On Feb 14, bachelor/spinster take your parents, sisters brothers to out and spend the day along with them. If married take your spouces and kids. Just dont write the comment for commenting purpose. If alone then spend day in prayers. Valentine Day is to show love to loved ones.

They have got a main agenda of Valentines day now to be in limelight. Yes Mr. Kumar Malemar, you are not too far from Krishna Palemar. Just erase the M from Malemar and add P so that you too can be a famous figure like Palemar. By the way who are you stop people from celebrating Valentines Day. Is watching blue film an Indian culture. Are you a registered organization to take law in your hands. Why did you people not raise your voice on all that act that happened in the assembly. You people just want to be in limelight and look out for some agenda, but your agenda should not hurt the BJP.
