Young urban educated Indian women have found out a unique way of protesting against Hindu ultra-rightist groups. More than 39,000 people from all over the country and abroad, (including Afghanistan, Iraq and the West) have already joined this group during the last one week as the fastest growing international community, which calls itself the ‘Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women’ (CPLF). They have decided to give pink underwears, (‘chaddis’ in colloquial Hindi) to the chief of Sri Ram Sena, Pramod Muthalik, this Valentines Day. This is a reponse to the Mangalore Pub incident and protest against Muthalik's comments on forceful marriage of couples on Valentine's Day. Show your support by joining the Facebook group.

Update: So far, 16,139 people from all over the city have sent chaddis for Muthalik.
