In a disturbing incident, a group of people harassed an Australian couple at a restaurant in Bengaluru on Saturday. According to local media reports, they even threatened to skin the young man’s leg, for sporting a tattoo of Hindu goddess Yellamma (an Avatar of Durga) on his shin. The couple were detained by the city police, forced to apologise for ‘hurting religious sentiments’ of the people.
