[India]Kissing event’ register protest against ‘moral policing

moniker

Broken In
They could've chosen a better way to protest against moral policing. Kissing in public is illegal in India, and you gotta respect the law. Maybe if they hadn't mentioned that they'd kiss in public they wouldn't have faced this police clampdown.

There are better ways to protest than to indulge in illegal activities. But this doesn't condone the behavior of the yuvamorcha goons who attacked the people and vandalized the hotel. They acted like hooligans and should be arrested. Not sure if they have been.

Yes, the laws against public displays of affection are archaic, but you don't protest against those laws by breaking those laws. That's anarchy.

Kissing is not illegal per se in India but police can book you under section 294 which says that “whoever, to the annoyance of other… does any obscene act in any public place” shall be punished with imprisonment extending up to three years or with a fine or both so it means if others are not annoyed by your kissing(almost impossible in average indian public place) then it is not applicable.However even if a couple is booked court can still provide relief as it was seen in case of a married couple by delhi High Court:
The Telegraph - Calcutta (Kolkata) | Opinion | Who’s afraid of kissing?
In his interim order, Justice S. Muralidhar observed, “It is inconceivable how... the expression of love by a young married couple would attract the offence of obscenity and trigger the coercive process of law.”

The Indian constitution allows you to have multiple spouses if your existing spouse has no objection. Then why these guys have problem?
