For those thinking that the Senas' and culture police's antics are something to be ignored, think about this: most of the security on Feb 13th at Pune would have been diverted towards protecting citizens entering movie theaters and couples celebrating Valentine's day.
If this had been a series of blasts, most of our security forces would have been wasted around multiplexes and parks, instead of chasing perps. I don't know if this aggravated the situation yesterday, but it sure as hell wouldn't have helped.
Opportunity cost is a very real cost, and folks playing the fool with citizens' security should be put to task very early with a no-forgiveness policy, whatever their last names be. Ironically, the Shiv Sena claims that SRK was not being patriotic by supporting Pakistani cricket players. Guess who were the real traitors yesterday?
