An unholy act

The Indian Express reports:
An Israeli couple who got married in Pushkar on Wednesday and had planned an Indian honeymoon could spend three months in jail instead after falling foul of the priests who conducted their marriage according to Hindu rituals. Their offence: a post-nuptial kiss on the ghats of the Pushkar Lake.

Priests conducting Orprez Allen and Selev Kermit’s marriage blew their fuse when they kissed right in front of them after the ceremony.

“It spoiled the prayers. The wedding became a farce because of this unholy act,” SN Garg, secretary of the Association of Pushkar Pandits, said.
Hmm. I wonder what Mrs Garg has to say such about such unholy acts.
