Couple to appeal public kissing verdict in Dubai:

A couple who claimed they kissed on the cheek in a restaurant while under the influence of alcohol faces one month in jail and deportation.

An Emirati woman raised a complaint against a 24-year-old British man, who works in Dubai, and a 25-year-old woman, visiting from the UK. Because they broking rules by touching and kissing each other on lips in public. The lady said what they did pissed her off because her children were there and they saw that disrespectful scene in the restaurant around 2 am. After she called the police telling them what happened. The couple claimed they kissed on the cheek under the influence of alcohol. Now they face one month in jail and deportation. The couple will appear before the Appeals Court next week, seeking acquittal or reduction of the primary judgment.

I think they deserved this punishment even if it’s sort of harsh because we all got annoyed when we see such scenes in publics. That makes kids stare at them and send them a message which does not belong to neither our areas nor our religion it’s like saying “it’s okay to do such immortal attitude anywhere as you like as long you think it’s good”. That message could ruin our societies. Our religion and habits did not teach us such crap. Those behaves teach them abhorred deeds. I wish that punishment be like a respectful message which everyone appreciates and a red line that that no one else crosses again. Hope this couple is considered as a moral anyway. It’s nice to be advanced country having so many different inhabited nationalities but without forsaken our principles and religion. Each country has its own habits and beliefs which should be respected by any dweller.
Do you think they deserve acquittal or even reduction? Should we be more lax with them? Do you think what couple did is normal behave and they have the right to do whatever they do in their countries?

Honestly I'm not sure about the punishment. What I do know though is that when we are visiting other countries I think its necessary to abide by their laws and customs to be respectful.

Exactly that is what I meant and it's monumental to keep us respectful and safe in foreign countries when we get abide by other countries policy.
Thanks for your passing Widsom ^^

Sounds you got amazed by the punishment XD. You don't know how much those people cross borders by their disrespectful manners. The country admonishes them many times by telling rules and circumstances of crossing line, plus they know what they do is against our customs and religion. But they still ignoring the material rules although they already know such attitudes are not desirable and nasty. So the punishment is not crazy at all and it should be considered as a moral message.
Thanks for your comment I liked it ^^
