(Before It's News)


Celebrating Valentine’s Day has been banned in the capitol of Pakistan. Here’s the story from the Daily Mail:

A Pakistani court Monday banned public celebrations of Valentine’s Day in the capital Islamabad, the latest attempt by authorities to outlaw a holiday seen by many in the traditional Muslim society as vulgar and Western.

Response: Pakistan is not the only Muslim majority country to try and ban Valentine’s Day. In most Muslim nations Valentine’s Day is considered to be a Christian ‘religious’ holiday and also an ‘immoral’ intrusion upon their culture.

Every year Saudi Arabia actually arrests those caught celebrating the Western holiday and goes to the extreme of banning the sale of red roses, red flowers, and heart shaped boxes of candy on February 14.                 *Top
