Sri Ram Sene would not

Panaji, Mar 17 (ANI):
Criticising the Sri Ram Sene (SRS) for its conservative ideology, Goa Home
Minister Ravi Naik, on Tuesday said the State Government would not permit

free as men to decide what they want. Who are we to indulge in moral policing?"
Muthalik, on Monday, was
even banned from entering Dakshina Kannada district for a year. Mangalore
is the headquarters of Dakshina Kannada district.

of the Sri Ram Sene had barged into a pub in Mangalore on January 24 and
