After Kochi and Delhi the liberal Kiss of Love campaign – involving the public display of affection – which has raised the hackles of conservatives is scheduled to hit Bangalore over the next weekend with a human rights activist Rachita Taneja set to organize an event if granted clearances by the police and the Congress government in Karnataka.

With right wing leaders like Sri Rama Sene chief Pramod Muttalik already threatening to disrupt any event involving kissing in public the Karnataka government is approaching the issue with caution.

Home minister K J George said on Tuesday that the government would permit the event to be held if it falls within the purview of laws concerning public decency. A former woman Congress minister C Motamma however cautioned the government against allowing the event.

Bangalore police commissioner M N Reddi told The Indian Express on Tuesday that no one had approached the police as yet for permission for the conduct of the Kiss of Love event in Bangalore.

Last week Sri Rama Sene leader Pramod Muttalik had threatened action on Kiss of Love events if organized in Karnataka. He had stated that kissing in public is against Indian culture and that it should be a private affair.

The human rights activists Rachita Taneja is proposing holding the event on November 29 and has a scheduled meeting with police officials on Wednesday. The activist said that she would not like to hold the event if security and safety were to be compromised.

      Common guys ... why do you want to show off in public. Don't you have your homes to do such stuff. Already we are seeing children abuse activities. Now seeing your public KISS OF LOVE, you still want to deteriorate the already polluted environment. What do you want to prove by this DUMB Act ???
