"Media hype has spoilt Karnataka's image" 

MANGALORE: The "disproportionate media hype" over the January 24 pub attack here has tarnished the image of Karnataka, member of the National Commission for Women (NCW) Nirmala Venkatesh has said.

"People of Karnataka are a peace-loving lot. This incident makes it seem as if that is not the case," she said.

Ms. Venkatesh was visiting the city as part of a one-member inquiry commission set up by the NCW to submit a report on the attack on women by Sri Ram Sene members.

In an interaction with the media, Ms Venkatesh remained non-committal about the alleged role of Hindutva outfit in the attacks.

Asked if she would recommend a ban on Sri Rama Sene, she said, "We will definitely consider that [banning] under the provisions of the Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA)."

A little later she, however, said, "We are not after this group. Why should we concentrate on groups? We must focus on the mindset of men who commit such acts."

Where had you guys been fot his long!! .... where is pilid ??? ...we are all eagerly waiting for his methodical dissection vis-a-vis the election commission issue. Afterall, he is the one we look up to for all legal issues. right ? ...What with N Ram's nauseating and completely misleading diatribes against the cec on almost a daily basis, we are missing pilid's solid analysis and incisive comments. Pilid, whereverf you are come out and slate this intellectual pimp down on this issue. we are waiting for ya ........
