"to act in accordance with moral rules" after security cameras spotted the couple kissing.
The issue prompted an opposition lawmaker to question the Islamist-rooted ruling party, which many secularists fear wants to expand the role of Islam in Turkey, about whether subway officials were authorized to make such demands.
So some 100 - 200 or so people took to a subway stop in Ankara, along with their "free kisses" placards, to participate in a "kiss-in" protest. Then the Islamists had to get involved in a counter-protest. Even though there were only about 20 or so there chanting the obligatory "Allahu Akhbar", they allegedly brought their knives with them and then things got ugly. The Islamists attacked the kissers, and one individual was stabbed.
Secular Turks are also not happy with the recent decision to ban alcohol advertising and late night alcoholic beverage sales, other than in tourist areas.
Video of the protest. Note the vast difference between the peaceful "kissers" and the rabid pro-Islamists.
