In a display of intolerance towards people’s right to freedom, comes this news from Kolkata. 

A couple was allegedly harassed and beaten up for hugging inside the city’s Metro compartment. 

According to a report by The Quint, a range of insensitive questions were hurled at the couple, including these:

“Why aren’t you going to a pub in Park Street?” to “Why don’t you get a room?”

It is one of the many instances of moral policing rampant in our country; where one supposedly inappropriate behaviour is reciprocated with physical violence.
