Valentines Day - Moral PolicingValentine's Day is a very special day for people in love. Whether they are married or not, this day marks a beautiful memory amongst many couples. While this day has spread across the continents and reached India, it is no exception that this day is celebrated in India equally with other western countries. While many people may support this day, there is an equal oppression by a certain group of people.
The so-called groups (I will not take the names) have warned youth that if they see any couple celebrating Valentine's Day, will conduct marriage then and there. Who are they to do that? Why in the name of moral policing are they relenting to such activities? Why can't the law enforcement take proper action on such goons? Who gave them such rights to intrude into the private space of people? There have been many incidents where these moral police people trashed couples, irrespective of men and women to black and blue.
Valentine's Day is not the only day which has reached India from other western countries. There are plenty of such days (ex: New Year's Eve) which are being celebrated and this "Moral Police" have no issue with them but why with Valentine's Day? This day marks the expression of love towards their partner or future partner. Is expressing love a heinous crime? And nowadays youngsters are quite matured and being practical about their future life partner and it is a good practice to understand each other before getting married. Why are these people intruding into a person's freedom? This is a democratic country right! We must respect an individual's choices and freedom. You have no right to be a 'God Father' and do absurd things in the name of 'Moral Policing'.
