Richared Gere Doesn’t Bother to the Arrest Warrant of the Court

Richard Gere does not bother to the arrest order of himself sent by the Jaipur court of India for his kissing scandal to Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty. In the last week, Gere kissed Shilpa Shetty at an event promoting awareness for HIV/AIDS. He kissed on her cheek which flicked a lot of protests in India. However, Mr. Gere said that he did not do anything which can cause such warrant to him. RTE Entertainment reported:

In an interview on Comedy Central's 'The Daily Show With Jon Stewart', he said "Me kissing the girl on the cheek was nothing."

He dismissed the charge, saying "There is a very small right-wing, very conservative political party in India and they are the moral police in India ... they do this kind of thing quite often."

"It goes to a reputable court and it gets thrown out," he continued.

I think Richard Gere does not have any idea regarding the Indian culture. In India open kissing is regarded as obscenity and the country posses some law regarding obscenity. The court has issued warrant to the two actors for breaking the obscenity law of India.
