Bring out the chaddis.

So we’ve expressed our outrage and disdain at the activities of Mr. Muthalik, and went back to our normal routine.
And once again, someone has stood up, and demanded that we do not take this lying down. Someone has asked you to sit up and take notice of the injustices of the Shri Ram Sena.
Someone is asking you to send Mr. Muthalik a pink chaddi.
So go out, one and all, and pick up the gaudiest ( correct spelling?) chaddi you can find…preferably pink, however the group does not believe in colour discrimination!
Here are the pick-up spots in India…
Go ahead…buy that chaddi!

This is information taken from their blog: http://www.thepinkchaddicampaign.bogspot.com

Step 1: It does not matter that many of us have not thought about Valentine’s Day since we were 13. If ever. This year let us send the Sri Ram Sena some love. Let us send them some PINK CHADDIS.

Look in your closet or buy them cheap. Dirt-cheap. Make sure they are PINK. Send them off to the Sena.

The address to send the package is:
The Pink Chaddi Campaign,
Pramod Muthali, Sri Rama Sene Office # 11, Behind new bus stand, Gokhul road, Lakshmi park, Hubli – Karnataka
Contact person:

Nithin (9886081269)
Divya (9845535406)
Nisha ( 9811893733)
Vivek(9845591798)
Ratna (09899422513)

If you don’t want to mail it yourself, you can drop it off at the Chaddi Collection Points. We will be collecting across the country through this week and sending the packages on February 12. More information about Chaddi Collectors in your city soon on our blog: http://thepinkchaddicampaign.blogspot.com/

Step 2: Send the Pink Chaddi Campaign a photograph of the package.

Tell us how many chaddis you are sending out and inspire other women in other cities. You can either mail the information to freelancehabba (at) gmail (dot) com or you can mail it at our facebook address. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=49641698651&ref=mf

Step 3: On Valentine’s Day we do a Pub Bharo action. Go to a pub wherever you are. From Kabul to Chennai to Guwahati to Singapore to LA women have signed up. It does not matter if you are actually not a pub-goer or not even much of a drinker. Let us raise a toast (it can be juice) to Indian women. Take a photo or video. We will put it together (more on how later) and send this as well to the Sri Ram Sena.

What happens after Valentine’s Day?
After Valentine’s Day we should get some of our elected leaders to agree that beating up women is ummm… AGAINST INDIAN CULTURE.

For right now, ask not what Dr VS Acharya, Home Minister of Karnataka can do for you. Ask what you can do for him. Here is his blog. Send him some love.
