Pakistani court issues nationwide ban on Valentine's Day

Quote:
The Islamabad High Court in Pakistan's capital issued an order Monday that banned the celebration of Valentine's Day across the country 'with immediate effect.'

The order prohibits the display of adverts on electronic and print media that reference Valentine's Day, bans the sale of associated merchandise and states that the day cannot be celebrated in "any public space or government building."

Why do you need all the balloons and flowers for your girlfriend anyway? As long as you have a nice pile of rocks to throw at her in case she forgets to were her hijab.
Nothing says you are mine forever like a sweet pile of throwing rocks.

Nah, the JW's are a pretty peaceful bunch. Islam is a bit more energetic AND direct in their actions. Don't like Valentines Day, well then time to behead a Teddy Bear!

But then again false equivalence is such a tired old game.

They hate Valentines Day because their wives can't take the candy and cards to kindergarten.

I'm just waiting for some liberal doctor to come out with some kind of finding that people with no significant other goes through some kind of depression on Valentine's day, and it's very mean of us who do to gloat about it.

It has essentially turned into a commercial western tradition and rooted in christianity, so it's no real surprise the Muslim religion would reject it and hardliner countries ruled by Muslim theocracies outright ban it...fair or not.

Question: Does the Muslim religion have and celebrate any holidays? Do the nations ruled under the Muslim law celebrate any not religious holidays?

My friend in Germany got his wife flowers for Valentine's Day. I was surprised they celebrate it. However, Western "holiday" or not, does it seem reasonable to "outlaw" such a silly and harmless while being religiously neutral holiday? Of all the problems going on there, their officials think Valentines Day is that much of a threat? Speaks volumes about their society and why they don't blend well with ours.

Just like Catholicism co-opted pagan festivals, secularist society has co-opted then Catholic/Christian festivals for their own commercial purposes. At first by catering to that particular religion, but then rather quickly realizing they're missing out on a bigger market. So, things like Christmas, Easter, Valentines Day, St. Patrick's Day, Mardi Gras, etc become much less religion based and simply an excuse to party and gather as groups.

That dynamic could be explained in several ways. One could say that positioning Christian events or celebrations at the same times as pagan ones served to keep recent converts from returning to the old ways, as a competing alternative. Either way, dates DO overlap, and guesses at motivation DO NOT have factual support, as far as I know.

You'd be better off with a bed bug/flea extermination company.

The Muslims have an entire month of fun and games called Ramadan. Some of the holiday festivities include not eating, drinking or having sex (even with goats) while the sun is up.

Just how hard is it to eat an early breakfast, skip lunch and eat a late supper? That describes a lot of my days. Sheesh!
