Kiss of Love: After creating hullabaloos in Kochi, Mumbai and Kolkata, it now reaches Delhi

Now, Kiss of Love campaign reaches Delhi
New Delhi, Nov 8: After giving Kochi, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Kolkata police a run for their money, the "Kiss of Love" campaign will finally arrive in the national capital of Delhi to protest against moral policing.

As per the campaign's Facebook page, the event will be held outside the office of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in Jhandewalan near the Metro station where youth of Delhi will display "embraces, holds and kisses".

"Come embrace, hold, shake hands, give high fives... and Kiss. They take away our cafes, our pubs, our parks, our galis and mohallas and tell us this is no place to kiss. Let's go to Jhandewala where the grand office of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) is located and register our protest," said a post on Facebook.

The Delhi chapter of the event, that has so far recieved a lukewarm response in the cities it was held, is being organised by students of Jawaharlal Nehru University. As per the organisers they have chosen RSS office because the right wing group has been denying them public spaces where they can express their love.

Nearly, 1,100 people have already confirmed their participation on the campaign's Facebook page.

Thousands of people accepted the invitation to kiss in public as "an expression of love" at Marine Drive at the shore of Kochi, Kerala, last week.

From there, the message has slowly spread to people living outside Kerala.

According to the organisers on the Facebook page, "Moral policing is a criminal activity. Most political parties and religious organisations try to do that. A group of young bloods join their hands together to prove to the society that kiss is the symbol of love."

A television had aired news, alleging immoral activities at a hotel named downtown café. A coffee shop in Kozhikode was vandalized by members of a youth wing affiliated to the BJP. The claim was that the cafe was used by young students for dates, which they deem unacceptable.

‘Kiss of love' protest is against the vandalism of the shop. It is also against the 'moral policing' act conducted across Kerala by various political parties in the name of right and wrong.

The incident had created an outrage in the social media and support has been pouring in for youngsters' right to express their love.

Opposing the event The Vishwa Hindu Parishad or VHP has said it will "legally challenge" the attempt to gather people for public display of affection.
