Freedom to be with friends, be it of any gender. Against Moral Policing

You all know that Uttar Pradesh, India has a new government now. And the new government has created a Anti-Romeo Squad. The purpose of the squad was to catch eve teasers and women molesters in Uttar Pradesh. But it seems the squad has drifted its aim from eve teasers to couples, friends etc. They are raiding parks, restaurants, and other public places and are catching couples or someone who is with a person of opposite gender. This is not only harassing, but it is also violation of rights given to us by the Constitution of India.
These people are doing moral policing, rather than catching eve teasers.
I do agree that eve teasing should end and eve teasers must be caught. But, innocent people and people who are together with mutual consent must not be affected.
UP Police must understand the difference between moral policing and catching eve teasers.
Even though the CM has ordered not to harass couples, friends, and people who are together with the mutual consent. But it seems, this order does not affect the Anti-Romeo Squad.
As per our Constitution we are allowed to be with anyone, irrespective of caste, religion, gender.
They even have questioned tourists at tourists places.
I strongly oppose such kind of moral policing.
Thus I request you all to sign this petition and make your voice count.
P.S. : I do agree completely that Eve Teasing and crime against women must end and one should not compromise on that.
