Bengaluru, Feb 12 (ANI): Pramod Muthalik, the founder of the Shri Ram Sena, has called off Valentine's Day protests in Bengaluru, and added that protests would be held in other parts of the state.
Muthalik said that the decision to call off the protests was taken after they received specific information that some miscreants were planning to disrupt peace.
"I have specific information that there are some miscreants will intentionally try and disrupt a peaceful protest by us so that the Sena and the government in Karnataka gets a bad name," he said.
"All the attention is on Bengaluru and I am sure that someone will create trouble and blame the Shri Ram Sena," Rediff.com quoted Muthalik, as saying.
"We have no intention of creating trouble for anyone and neither will we resort to any violence. In case any of our activists find anyone dressed indecently, then we will just protest in front of them," he added.
Muthalik said that calling of the Bengaluru protest is not a defeat for him or the Sena.
"People across the nation know me now and my message has reached every nook and corner of this country. The impact of our message against Valentine's Day has been loud and clear and 50 per cent of the colleges in Karnataka have directed their students not to celebrate Valentine's Day," he added. (ANI)
