(Newser) – Rape is sort of a touchy subject in India right now, so promoting a new cocktail named "Balatkari" (meaning "rapist") probably isn't a great idea. But a Mumbai bar called Bonobo did it anyway, sparking a fierce protest from a group of women from India's Nationalist Congress Party. The women stormed the bar, ripped up its menus, and even attacked a bartender, the Independent reports. "It is shameful to know that some people do not consider rape as a heinous crime," one protester said. (Click for the latest on the gang-rape case rocking the country.)
