Anti-Valentine’s Day protest - level 2

Anti-Valentine’s Day protest - level 2

19-02-2015 07:00

A conservative Hindu group in India protested against Valentine’s Day. The group rode on motorbikes and harassed couples in public places.

The men in the group even punished some people. One man, for example, had to do sit-ups. The group also organised a wedding between two dogs to show how much they don’t like Valentine’s Day. 

Difficult words: Hindu (relating to the religion of Hinduism), harass (to make somebody feel bad), sit-ups (a type of exercise to make your belly stronger).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
