Post News, Hundreds protest Nepal crackdown on "nude" discos.

KATHMANDU (Reuters) - Hundreds of disco workers protested in Kathmandu on Monday against a government crackdown on "nude dancing" in its bid to improve the deteriorating law and order.

Police have raided scores of discos, nightclubs and dance bars in the past two weeks and detained 1,500 people saying many were running bars where "nude dances" were performed, not allowed by law in the Hindu majority society.

The Maoists banned the practice to defend Nepal's culture from "corrupting outside influence". Sounds good at first hearing, but they also banned the traditional sacrifices during Indrajatra. The obvious conclusion is that Maoist culture is the only culture they will tolerate.
