Kiss of Love uncivilised: Women's panel chief

The Kiss of Love protest, scheduled to be held in Bengaluru on November 30, has now attracted opposition from the Chairperson of Karnataka State Women’s Commission, Manjula Manasa.

In a letter to the Home Minister and Director General of Police, she has dubbed the scheduled protest “uncivilised”, which is “detrimental to Indian culture.”

When cases of sexual assault against women are on the rise, the State should be sensible enough to discourage such protests, she has said.

“It is culture that distinguishes us from animals. It is unfortunate that kiss, which has a sanctity inside four walls, is being publicised in a distasteful manner.”
