Is Mangalore run by goons! They are sick people! No one has the right to take law in their hands...These are just the few comments that many people have commented over the last five days on the Magalore moral policing act that irked many across the nation. The latest was the State Women’s Commission Chairperson Manjula is all set to submit a report on the incident to the Home Minister R Ashok.

Manjula opined that the government should also look into other aspects of the incident instead of only focusing on the attack.

Whatever be the case the extremes of the act are not to be excused say critics. This only goes on to prove the political disorder in the state to the exterior world.

The hooliganism that played out in Mangalore on Saturday night has shocked the nation. A self-claimed moral police, belonging to right-wing organisation Hindu Jagarana Vedike (HJV), raided a private party and allegedly molested girls. Around 50 HJV activists had barged into a home stay and beaten up and molested a young crowd celebrating a birthday party. The HJV state convener, Jagdish Karanth, had taken responsibility for the incident, claiming it was to curb sex tourism. As a protest to the incident, Mangalore witnessed a spontaneous response to a shutdown call given by some independent student associations and the National Students Union of India (NSUI) as colleges shut down in the city on Monday. Protests spilled onto the streets. (With inputs from internet-AW AarKay)
