FREE TO KISS?
Right-wing Hindu groups in India say they will be "requesting" unmarried couples
caught in public on Valentine's Day to marry on the spot
- an announcement that's provoked a backlash on Facebook.
But in an act of protest against moral policing, thousands of romantic notes have been appearing on Facebook this week
as part of an organised "Love Letters Movement".
The pro-Valentine's camp is just as organised as their opponents. Rahul Pasupalan is an organiser of the "Kiss of Love" group, which is not only behind the love letters protest but also got crowds out in Kerala in a mass kiss to protest the vandalising of a cafe where couples were shown kissing on television. This time around, the group is planning a huge Valentine's Day celebration.
