Students protest against moral policing

Wednesday 27th July 2022 07:16 EDT

Colleges students - both young men and women - sat in each other’s laps at an old waiting shed near the College of Engineering in Trivandrum, to protest against moral policing by locals who had broken the bench into three individual seats to ensure that the college boys and girls didn’t sit next to each other. The engineering students sat in each others’ laps, fingers laced, hands draped over each other’s shoulders, and smiled into a camera. They posted the picture on social media and it has gone viral, a rebuttal to all those who would rather see students bent over their classroom desks, with boys and girls in separate rows.
