free hugs

Two men have been arrested in Saudi Arabia for offering free hugs to passers-by in the capital, Riyadh.
The Saudi religious police detained the two young men for indulging in exotic practices and offending public order.
The free hugs movement aims to "brighten up" people's lives by offering strangers hugs.
They offered hugs, advertised on a placard, in one of Riyadh's main shopping streets.
They were subsequently arrested by the kingdom's religious police, the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which is charged with ensuring that sharia law is strictly adhered to.
The two were required to sign a pledge that they would not offer hugs again, reports say.

La gloire se réduit à peu de chose : être jugé par des ignorants et estimé par des imbéciles, entendre prononcer son nom par une populace qui approuve, rejette, aime ou hait sans raison. Certes il n'y a pas de quoi s'enorgueillir.
