Hindu fundies wreck internet cafes

MUMBAI: A right-wing Hindu group has asked public Internet centres in India to partly block access to Orkut, and is making a software to monitor abusive communities on the popular social networking site operated by Google. The student wing of the Shiv Sena party said many Indians use Orkut to bad-mouth religious groups and disturb communal harmony, and also spread misinformation about India. The group is part of a growing band of cultural vigilantes opposed to what they see as increasing mimicry of the West. It often stops St. Valentine's Day celebrations, attacks clubs and pubs and prevents screening of sexually bold films.

First it was the Lakshmi panties, now it's 'disrespect' of religion on Orkut. I'd say the Hindu fundies are starting to give Christians a run for their money.
