Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women

The Sri Ram Sena have defended Indian and Hindu honour this year by attacking women doing various un-Indian things, such as drinking or wearing un-Indian clothes. Sri want to uphold Indian culture, which in Sri Ram Sena's case means beating up women. Here is the video of one of their early actions, the Mangalore pub attack.

In response, a group of Indian women called the "Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women" have created the Pink Chaddi Campaign (Pink nickers = pink chaddi), and started the Pink Chaddi Campaign Blogspot.

Good luck to the pink chaddis and God Bless India. You can hear about the campaign on this Radio Four interview here.

Consortium of Pub-going, Loose and Forward Women's Support group

The main group was cracked and the Facebook Admin Team deleted the group along with 58,000 members. It seems they preferred the easiest solution?

Our founder, Nisha Susan, MSN-India's International Women’s Day Idol, had her account suspended.

Our boards, links, and wall were removed, our admin system was replaced with random people, and our news section and name repeatedly defaced and vandalised.

If a Human Rights group with over 58,000 members cannot get any clear or decisive action from the Facebook team, who can?

Our requests to the Facebook Admin team about this matter received no more attention than a form letter telling us to read the help files.

If it was Hilary Clinton’s Facebook Group, something may have been done.

We attempted to get it back, but since this is a Women’s Rights group in India, no one took notice. This is a travesty and we will carry on.

Peace to you all.
