India: Beer is against Indian culture?

Amit Varma, on India Uncut, wonders if beer is against Indian culture, after the Indian People's Party (BPJ) protested in opposition to a female minister who attended “a beer promotion party”.

    Have you ever seen liquor parties the indian people throw? The hard liquor flows like the river ganges, the beer flows like the river jamuna. We are seeing drunk brahmans everywhere. Liquor of any kind is sacred in India. If we didn’t have our liquor how could we enjoy kamasutra? If your female is a goddess of boozology let her promote beer. If she is a priest/minister of some kind, then shame on her.
