Every human should cultivate habit of well being , when you are in a public place.Being a activist never boss over others . There is way of approaching strangers. Your act creates differences among the people ad divide in the name of community.

If you really have concern towards the people express it in aright way and not by misbehaving in public places .It spoils the reputation as well as the peaceful ambiance

Why are the people unnecessarily creating scenes? Never behave cheap.If the girl herself is comfortable visiting with her friend What’s your problem?
