This is a cultural surge. Come let us kiss in the street, said the Facebook page. This is a cultural surge. Come let us kiss in the street, said the Facebook page.

After the Kochi edition of the ‘kiss of love‘ early this month, next in the same line is ‘kiss in the street’ slated for December 7 in Kozhikode to publically register the protest against the alleged incidents of moral policing in Kerala.

The organisers have launched a Facebook page for kiss in the street to uphold the freedom of an individual. The ‘kiss of love’ held in Kochi on November 2 had a slap on the cheek of moral policing. We need decentralised repeat of the kiss of love. This is a cultural surge. Come let us kiss in the street, said the Facebook page.

Police had arrested several men and women in Kochi who tried to conduct the ‘kiss of love’ protest in the wake of BJP attack against a hotel in Kozhikode. Thousands had thronged Kochi to witness the event, but had to return crestfallen as the police did not allow the participants of the kiss festival to go into the venue.

    People who don't want to see NEED NOT SEE. Nobody is forced to see it. Love is a personal matter and people have the right to express it. Nobody should be offended when they see two people kiss if they do there is something wrong with them.

        What are these people saying in the name of culture. We all agree on the fact that every person in the world are equal then why there is the need of differ rent laws for the SAME HUMANS.Which originated first, HUMANITY OR CULTURE. We got different culture for different countries but the same HUMANITY applies for all humans. The caste of HUMANS must be HUMANITY not any culture which is only secondary to that. India must not be run on hinduthwa, Saudi Arabia not on sharia. The world must be run on humanity.Its humane to express love and be loved. The nature is practical,then why can't be humans. Again we all agree that God is one, then why he made different laws for different people. People must open their eyes and must question these laws. Because only if we question, we will attain the truth. For men who had been blinded by religion, try to do that... You may get answers.

          Why are couples engaging in consensual are arrested in name of prosution, is that private. If a couple can't make love privately, there is a need to protest. The problem is that Indian laws are obsolete and need to be re looked on

            Yes love is a personal matter. The couples kissing in kozhikode was personal and was not in the streets.
