New Delhi | The Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers on Saturday disrupted ‘Kiss of Love’, campaign being held by youths against moral policing outside Sangh headquarters here.
According to reports, RSS workers tried to prevent the youths from organising the controversial programme. However, the participants resisted the attempts, leading to a minor scuffle here today evening.
The two groups then raised slogans against each other. Shortly after police intervened to bring the situation under control, reports said. The programme was conducted here as part of a campaign launched by a group of students in Kerala against moral policing.
The group called ‘Free Thinkers’ launched the campaign to protest the recent attack on a coffee shop in Kerala’s Kozhikode city by a group of people who criticised the public display of affection by some couples.
