The Hindu today

There are two news items that bother me in today's Hindu.
The Minister was forced to quit from the post of Pakistan Muslim league's women wing's head. This was because she hugged her paragliding instructor in france after a jump. The cleric said she had committed a very "obscene" act by doing so and so the need for dismissal.
Second Headline "Ire over Ahmadinejad gesture" (sorry no link available but report can be found on page 14)
The Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was criticised for hugging and kissing the hand of his teacher from primary school in public. The lady is 70 years old. The newspapers termed the incident contrary to islamic laws and called it an "indecent" act.
Closer home last week Richard Gere kissing Shipa Shetty was termed indecent and a case was filed against both of them.
Is all I can say.
