The fifty cent tour of this story, as far as I can fathom it, is there's some Hindu fundies in India who don't want women to go to bars, wear western-style clothing, and celebrate Valentine's Day. Yeah. So a group of men claiming to belong to this group "raided" a pub on a Saturday afternoon, slapping at women inside and driving them out into the street. Needless to say this youtube is not pretty:
A group of reasonably outraged Indians has started a movement to send pink panties (known as chaddis) (and oh how I love that) to the fundie organization. They have a blog and a lovely Facebook group with panties images I'm destined to steal.
I also love that this horrible incident of violence against women can be met with direct action non-violence that gets lots of well-deserved attention. Fundies don't have a chance against activist women with a strong sense of self and humor.
