Oh boy, moral policing in Pakistan is never-ending. Especially when it comes to PDA, even the married couples are not spared. God forbid if you do kiss in public, you put shame on the ‘Islamic State of Pakistan’. Chances are, you might even get caught by a cop and pay a fine. But in this case, a man filed a report against a kissing incident on a plane, the memefest on twitter is epic. Twittersphere not grills the man and takes the mickey out of him!
A recent incident on a Karachi-Islamabad flight has caused quite a stir in Pakistan.
A little background
An amorous couple caused an uproar on a domestic Airblue flight PA-200 as the passengers caught them kissing each other on May 20. According to eyewitnesses, it was the couple seated in the fourth row who began kissing first. As a number of fellow passengers complained, the air hostess requested the couple to stop.
However, the couple continued exhibiting some very intimate behavior regardless of having families around them. When they did not pay heed to her request, the air hostess provided the uncooperative couple with a blanket to keep their displays of affection under wraps.
As the couple was confronted about their actions, they reportedly hit back, “Who are you to tell us anything? You don’t have any right to interfere in someone’s privacy”. Advocate Bilal Farooq Alvi, who was on board the plane, issued a video message on social media claiming to detail the actions of the couple in the presence of families aboard the flight.
Alvi even went on to lodge a complaint with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) against the airline staff for not taking adequate measures to stop the couple. As of now, the civil aviation department is reportedly investigating the matter.
Shocked at Alvi’s intolerance, the Twittersphere grills Alvi and turn him into an epic meme. Enjoy the memefest on the plane kissing incident on twitter!
