"'Underwear champions' and misguided advocates of free speech need to actually note the 'Statesman incident'. Instead, they are busy giving national publicity at their own cost to Pramod Muthalik and his goons.
But the Statesman incident won't bother them for two reasons. The secular media, a handmaid of the ultra-secular political class is busy obfuscating such pesky, inconvenient news items. Not one prominent media house gave the coverage this outrageous act deserved. The sad and dangerous fallout of this incident is that the Statesman won't publish such pieces for a long time, at least. Second, such incidents don't directly threaten the applecart lifestyles of the pub-goers. When it does, it'll be too late to protest."
