Senior BJP leader L K Advani said there can be ‘no compromise’ on the issue of last month’s attack on girls at a Mangalore pub as the act was ‘against Indian culture and ethos’.

“I strongly condemn the attack on girls in Mangalore. There can be no compromise on this. It’s wrong”,Advani said on the sidelines of a function in Bangalore.

“It (the attack) is basically against Indian culture,Indian ethos. Girls or boys,they have their own way”,he said,adding that one may not approve the girls in pub but that does not mean one attacks them.

Right wing Sri Ram Sene activists had attacked women and others at a Mangalore pub last month which triggered nationwide outrage against the Sene and the BJP government led by B S Yeddyurappa.
