Indian women: Pink Chaddi Campaign wants your underwear to defeat thugs who beat up women

Rishab sez,

To counter a disturbing trend of right-wing Hindu thugs beating up women going to pubs or wearing clothes they don’t approve of, Bangalore-based Alternative Law Forum (ALF) has launched a satirical campaign to support India’s “Pubgoing Loose and Forward Women”.The Pink Chaddi Campaign asks women to send pink chaddis (underwear) to the ALF to forward to one of the bullying organisations, the Shri Ram Sene, which has threatened to attack couples found celebrating Valentine’s Day.

    Ever wondered where the word Thug comes from? Don’t have time to look it up but wouldn’t be surprised if it originated from the Cult of Thugees in India whose individual members were referred to as Thugs. What a wonderful cultural note if they are same.
