How could Shriya have the audacity to wear that dress to a awards function? That too in a function where the CM of Tamil Nadu (a staunch atheist) was the guest of honour. How unholy! Complete blasphemy. I completely understand why Hindu Makkal Katchi protested against the dress. Its completely against our scriptures and against Hinduism.
I empathise with the HMK. The dress spites the Vedas, it insults the Gita, its against all Hindu traditions and spits on every value that Hinduism extols.
To get an idea of how a true, pious Hindu should dress please refer to the picture given below.
