Press Statement on the Offensive décor of Goregaon Social
Nov. 2, 2016
It has been brought to our attention that the decor of the pub 'Goregaon Social' at Oberoi Mall, Goregaon (East), Mumbai, is blasphemous and hurts the religious sentiments of the Christian community. We strongly condemn what appears to be a deliberate attempt to insult the Christian community by lack of respect for our religious beliefs and the sacred objects that are used for Divine worship.
We demand that the pub 'Goregaon Social' be closed with immediate effect, with cancellation of their Trade License, Liquor Permit, Health License, etc. till such time the decor is changed.
We will petition the appropriate authorities to act, failing which we reserve the right to appropriate legal action.
