A group of political activists have threatened to commit suicide if a New Year Bash starring Sunny Leone is allowed to happen in Bengaluru.
They have claimed that Sunny Leone’s appearance will be against the Indian culture, reports the MASALA.
The protesting members are from the fringe group Karnataka Rakshana Vedike Yuva Sene, the youth wing of Karnataka Rakshana Vedike.
‘We won’t allow western culture to hurt our Kannada culture. We all know the history of Sunny Leone.
And we won’t allow it,’ Harish, the leader of the protesters, said the leader of the pro-Kannadiga activists.
The demonstrators, wearing black ribbons around their head, set ablaze posters of Sunny at Manyata Tech Park, where the New Year bash has been scheduled to take place.
The members of the fringe groups said they had no issues if she wore a saree for her performance.
The organiser issued a statement saying the New Year party was a family affair. ‘Being a Kannadiga myself, I have ensured the standard of the show is representative of Bengaluru’s culture.
Even though, Sunny Leone got a lot of offers to dance on New Year’s Eve, she chose to come here, as Bengaluru and Hyderabad are her favourite places.
This is a family programme and the culture of the state is not being disrespected,’ said the organiser.
