Through a Facebook page it was a call to the people interested to come forward with their husbands/wives or partners to kiss or share a hug at marine drive to protest against the moral policing act at a restaurant in Kozhikode.

Thiruvananthapuram: "Kiss of love'" volunteers have been attacked by the alleged 'moral' police while they were at marine drive propagating the programme they are organising on November 2.

Through a Facebook page it was a call to the people interested to come forward with their husbands/wives or partners to kiss or share a hug at marine drive to protest against the moral policing act at a restaurant in Kozhikode.
