Supreme Court bans entry of Sri Ram Sene chief in Goa


The leader of Hindu right-wing group, Sri Ram Sene can’t enter Goa, says India’s Supreme Court justifying the existing ban on his entry in Goa.

Pramod Muthalik, had earned notoriety after ‘goons’ belonging to his outfit had entered a pub in Mangalore in 2009 and thrashed young pub-goers, dragged women with their hair, slapped and abused them in the name of moral policing.

The video of the entire incident, when circulated, had caused widespread condemnation for him and his sypporters.
Muthalik, who has never shown any remorse for the violent acts committed by his men, was denied permission to enter in Goa in August last year following concerns expressed by the police.

The Supreme Court on Monday agreed with the decision when it said, “What are you doing in Mangalore? Are you doing moral policing?  Beating up girls at a pub in Mangalore? The High court is justified in stopping you. Let him not enter Goa for the time being – for six months.”Arguing that the repeated prohibitory orders since last year violated his fundamental rights, Muthalik had moved Supreme Court saying it was “orchestrated by an invisible hand operating from Goa or New Delhi.”

Muthalik asked why All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen chief Asaduddin Owaisi, his brother Akbaruddin Owaisi and social activist Binayak Sen were not banned from entering Goa for the same reasons.
