Demonstrators who are supporting 'kiss of love' campaign are ethically and morally wrong.

Kiss of Love or Lust?

They are morally illiterate who have no idea about the Indian culture and are blindly importing the values from one society and impose on another society. It’s against of Indian culture, traditions and moral values. Kissing in Public has desecrated the institution of marriage, making a mockery of chastity, commitment and holiness. It's a shame what is going on in India today and how liberals are thinking and confusing the act of lust exaggerated in its expression as an act of Love.

Kissing was never considered offensive or as a disrespectful in India. Kissing our Children’s, siblings, parents are considered as a display of love which no one has any problem. But a Day dedicated publicly will become offence and deteriorates morally because kissing our spouses in public is considered to be erotic.
The people who support such campaign are immature, lacking self esteem, and dwelling in insecurites.They are old enough to differentiate to understand Love and lust and being against societal norms. When someone goes against societies norms, childrens and others respectable families will around them feel uncomfortable ,embarrassing and disrespectful.

Many corrupted people are adapting the western culture forsaking the beautiful culture of India .There is nothing wrong to adapt the western culture if it is appropriate and have standards of morality. I am really surprised and amazed why many youngsters are attracted to bad rather than good stuff. Those who hate these inappropriate values are wrongly labeled as haters, do not have modernism, ignorant bigots. Love that lacks of trust, honesty, respect, support between each other is not love, it is simply a lust. Kisses in places where there are others can be seen as a form of boasting of a love that may simply not be there. One can think that the couple is extremely in love but truth is that they may be faking it to get peoples attention and making a way for others for temptation. They give the impression that they are capable of having everything in front of everyone. I am not condemning anyone For Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts corrupting morals, not been able to understand right or wrong and good or bad. It's not only about tradition or culture but also the basic decency and respect.

Public display affection lowers the Indian standards incrementally for which the tradition was kept over the decades will be ruined by few perverts and this type of behavior is unacceptable in public and not healthy for a society. If Kissing is allowed in Public, it will lead to fondling, etc before you know it, everybody wants more and more . The kissing in public ends up further physical intimacy and slowly turning to entertainment for others to see leading to ugly scenes and unwanted attention. And those people who are tempted by them find it difficult to control themselves physically and might indulge in a criminal way making a way for, bullies, mockers and criminals like predators, sexual abusers, molesters, rapists to increase.
Everyone of us need to control our desires in holiness and honor and act the way we want behind the closed doors of bedroom with our life partners .If done outside bedroom it becomes a passion of lust not act of Love. Even animals don’t care about Public displays, they will do in front of anyone and anywhere. Those who encourage public kissing is behaving worse than the animals. Its shame and to be determined by the public's level of tolerance for immorality.

It is part if who we are, respect and affection will help keep our marriage strong. So kissing in public doesn't make our relationship stronger but an opportunity for tempting others and being a bad example for children’s and families. We should also keep the future generations in mind .Many youngsters are supporting this champign must be able to differentiate right way or wrong way and to avoid falling into trap of confusion. Why cant they show the love and affection behind the four corners of the wall in their home not under the sun in front of all. What will children think when they are forced to witness couples kissing each other on the streets like animals? Its disgusting and form of a Deceptive affection, indecent act and lust that cannot make a relationship last.
Love in Indian tradition is considered sacred, something which if you express publicly, it diminishes its value. Many Western people love our Indian Culture and are abandoning their views and adopting Indian views and traditions but we being Indian are fascinated by their culture and adapting our lifestyle to theirs. Even According to Indian law ,most of the charges against such act are bought under Section 294 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Section 294 of the IPC states:
Whoever, to the annoyance of others,
(a) does any obscene act in any public place, or
(b) sings, recites or utters any obscene songs, ballad or word, in or near any public place,shall be punished with imprisonment of either description for a term which may extend to three months, or with fine, or with both.

Everyone of us has our desire to control the purity and honor to become a passion of lust, love, work outside the bedroom .If we work with partners in our life the way you want to be done behind closed doors in the bedroom.

For most of the couples, it is more lust than anything else. Do I need to elaborate?
