Opposed to Pak tour of India, will disrupt T-20 match: Muthalik
Bangalore: Right wing outfit Sri Ram Sene on Monday opposed the Pakistan cricket team`s tour to India and said it would disrupt the T20 match between the two countries in this city on December 25.
"We oppose Pakistan cricket team`s tour to India. We will not allow Pakistan-India T20 match on Dec 25," SRS chief Pramod Mutalik told reporters at Chinnswamy stadium here.
He alleged that both the centre and state governments, instead of taking up the responsbility of providing security to people of the country, affected by terror attacks, are conducting such matches.
Muthalik said he had met Karnataka State Cricket Association officials and requested them not to conduct the match here.
The India-Pakistan series would comprise three ODIs and two Twenty20 Internationals between Dec 25, 2012 and Jan 6, 2013. The ODI matches will be played in Chennai, Kolkata and New Delhi and the Twenty20 games in Bangalore and Ahmedabad.
The Ram Sene gained notoriety in January 24,2009 when its members attacked girls in a pub in Mangalore, claiming they were violating traditional Hindu values.
Muthalik later apologised for the attack, saying it was wrong, but said the attack was done to "save our mothers and daughters".
