Defy the ban. Celebrate Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day, which is now banned in Pakistan.

From the Associated Press:
A Pakistani judge on Monday banned all Valentine's Day celebrations in the country's capital, Islamabad, saying they are against Islamic teachings.
The judge ruled on a petition seeking to ban public celebrations of the Western holiday, court official Niaz Saleh said. He said the order had been sent to Pakistan's media regulator to ensure a blackout on any Valentine's Day promotions in print or electronic media.
The ban applies only to Pakistan's capital as the Islamabad high court has no jurisdiction beyond the city.
The regulator in a statement directed all Pakistani media outlets not to print or broadcast anything that promotes Valentine's Day. No event shall be held at any official level and at any public place, the statement quoted a part of the court order.
Later on Monday, the government issued an order to local police to enforce the court ban. A similar order was in place last year in Islamabad.
Malaysia, another Muslim country also bans Valentine's Day, Pamela Geller reported.

Ditto Iran.

The Islamic State in Iraq banned even wearing red.

In Indonesia, it is legal but there are those who protest Valentine's Day.

I suppose if you marry off girls before they reach puberty, there is no such thing as dating and really is no need for the day.

But what a dreary and sad life people live in these backward places. And yes, I say backward because they have not learned to respect freewill and individuality. Until they do, they will not advance from the seventh century.

  2. The Pakistani women were behind this. They complained that the men were paying more attention to their goats than to their women. - Elric

    1. What, no salo?

      "It is important that salo not be exposed to light or aged to long as the fat can become oxidized causing a bitter taste. However, should a batch of salo go bad, it makes an excellent water-repellent for leather boots."

    3. Hahaha! Yeah, I did it up right yesterday. Flowers for the wife and mom in law, check. Clever cards, check. Pan seared salmon with Bearnaise, potatoes, asparagus. Eat your hearts out, Pakis. In America we don't treat our women as chattel.

  6. The origins of Valentine's Day began with the pagan Roman holiday of Lupercalia, and what the Romans did to celebrate actually fit right in with modern Islamic state practices (according to an old article posted on-line by NPR):

    From Feb. 13 to 15, the Romans celebrated the feast of Lupercalia. The men sacrificed a goat and a dog, then whipped women with the hides of the animals they had just slain.

    The Roman romantics "were drunk. They were naked," says Noel Lenski, a historian at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Young women would actually line up for the men to hit them, Lenski says. They believed this would make them fertile."

    The brutal fete included a matchmaking lottery, in which young men drew the names of women from a jar. The couple would then be, um, coupled up for the duration of the festival — or longer, if the match was right.
