Nepal Cracks Down On Nude Discos

By Wyatt Earp | September 16, 2008

Heh, heh, he said “cracks.”

I wonder if the crackdown has anything to do with the fact that most of the people in that country look like a Yeti. What? I’m just sayin’.

KATHMANDU – 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.

Why do I have a feeling that the police officers “interrogated” more than a few nude “persons of interest?” Not that I would do anything like that, mind you.

A Maoist-led government which took power in August has already ordered the bars should be closed an hour before midnight, to halt worsening public security in the capital, home to more than two million people.

Bar and disco operators are protesting the move would jeopardize their business and render 80,000 people jobless. (H/T – )

80,000 people??? Well, I guess when you live in Kathmandu, there’s not much in the form of entertainment . . . except seeing the occasional climber fall from the peak of Mount Everest.
