India issues arrest warrant for Gere over kiss
An Indian court has issued an arrest warrant for Richard Gere and Bollywood actress Shilpa Shelty after they kissed and embraced in public at an HIV/AIDS awareness event in New Dehli. The issue has caused an uproar in India where citizens have taken to the streets burning effigies of Gere. The judge who issued the warrants called the kiss and embrace an ”obscene act” and subpoenaed television footage of the event. Under Indian law, a person convicted of public obscenity faces up to three months in prison, a fine, or both.
