Down with Valentine’s Day!

It’s that dreaded day of the year again, unknown to none, prohibited by many and celebrated by most; Valentine’s Day. Pagan rituals and worshipping “Christianized” idols are probably at their peak right now. A commercial excuse for public displays of affection and then the hateful price hike in the market on ultimate necessities like flowers and chocolates? I’m so glad there are groups on Facebook that addressed this rising concern like:

Sorry, Valentines Day I am Muslim

Let’s boycott Valentine’s Day

and

Jihad against Biddah.

A post on Jihad against Biddah asks pertinent questions like:

Will u b my valentine on d DAY OF JUDGEMENT & GIVE ME ALL UR GOOD DEEDS WHEN I WILL FALL SHORT OF DEM WHEN MY RECORDS WOULD B OPENED?
–> will u share 50% of d HELL FIRE on me?
–> will u help me when i would b THROWN in a crowd of POISONOUS SNAKES or atleast get some of dem on urself?

To understand fully how dangerous this day can be, you must watch this video on YouTube here.

Personally, I could not agree with Mr Mullah more. Valentine’s day is a sickening holiday. What is with the gooey love messages and extravagant shopping for girls? Using religion to slam events like this (and anniversaries, birthdays etc) is just the right approach. Nobody dare argue with that! Good job Mr Mullah, I shall be sure to pass on this winning strategy to my great great grandchildren too.

Besides being un-Islamic and commercial, Valentine’s Day is also sexist. Men are pressurized by television commercials and shop windows to actually express their love! The stress and demands are just ridiculous! I mean, who the hell can be asked uprightly for love, chocolates and flowers? What an inconvenience to show off your love for her when you could just type a text message – even better, email it to her from your office PC. No cost!

Then there are the unmentionable acts that go on in “parks” and “coffee shops” . Disgraceful. I wouldn’t order the coffee with cream, sprinkled with chocolate shaped like a heart if they put a gun to my head. And those 80 year old love birds, using this day as an excuse to publicly share a cone outside McDonalds? Oh gross. I mean, who wants to grow old and love each other forever?? We’re gonna die anyway, why attach yourself from now?

Seriously, pragmatism is the way to go. Save the cash! Support the mullahs and we’ll all live happily ever after. This nonsensical behavior must stop! Lets take an oath now:

“We, from this day onwards, shall not go to cafes and indulge in harmless flirting with a member of the opposite sex. We will not visit parks, we will not buy red roses (EVER). We shall abstain from love and the cheese that goes with it. We will not spend a dime on our boyfriends and girlfriends because it’ll just spoil them, showing them how we really feel and we will definitely not let anyone else enjoy this day by posting videos and Facebook groups like the ones stated above.”

Now that we’ve taken this godforsaken oath, I’m gonna go start getting dressed for my date tonight!

    the religious segment of our society has nothing better to do then to obsess over what women do.what length are their kameez,how tightly fitting are their clothes,how much skin is visible.why don’t they spend this much time and energy on fighting corruption,target killings and load sheddings.All this sick fixation with sexual repression and percieved obscenity reveals what the mullahs really find important in life.this absolute fear that their daughters,sisters would make their own decision out of free will terrifies the religious fanatics who think it is their birthright to treat the women in their families as their personal slaves,that they are the owners and masters and they’ll make all the decisions for their daughters and sisters.it’s high time that our society stops falling for the propaganda of the religious rightwing.Recommend

    these religious fundos can’t accept the fact that pakistan has moved on from the draconian Zia era during which the religious extremists were given a free hand to destroy our society.their anger is at losing the absolute power which they enjoyed and now they can’t stand it when people refuse to surrender to the fundos’ sexual repression.all these fanatics do is to make girls feel ashamed of their gender,to feel ashamed of being born with a female body which the religious bigots tell them constantly has to be covered up in black cloth otherwise they’ll get raped.this propaganda of making girls accept that their bodies are evil,sinful things which tempt and lead astray masoom,bicharay naujawans is an old trick used by men through the ages to keep women in their control and under their feet,anytime a girl tries to stand up for her rights,tries to express her opinion,immediately these misogynists try to put her down by casting aspersions on her character.sadly,a lot of girls do doubt themselves when confronted by accusations from men.the religious extremists power to hold our society hostage must be ended otherwise we’ll continue to live in the dark ages.Recommend

    Why are people so distressed about it. Mullah is not stopping you by force. he is just telling you that this is un-islamic. so be it. Would you stop if you are afraid of Hell? or do you really believe in hell?
    Let me clarify one thing, Society has just dragged us down to “Days”, there is a father day, a mother day and so on. wouldnt be better if every day was a parents day, you gota respect and show your love every day. dont you? For valentines, what worries me is not that the day itself or the way it is been taken from some other societies and included in ours. Do we need such days? Do we need another reason to Date? or be flirting with opposite sex? isnt the modern era of media and communication enough to destroy our norms and culture? Than we talk about how Females are treated as a show piece. Recommend

    Not to bring in the Religious context, but let’s be honest. This is a commercial excuse more than anything, do some research on how luxury good manufacturers perform on this day as compared to any other day of the calendar. You really need a day on the calendar to express yourself? you can’t do it on any of the other days? It is merely a boost in sales for multiple industries not an increase in ‘love’, you would be delusional to think of it like that. Besides I’m pretty sure most women here would rather be pleasantly surprised with an extravagant dinner, present, flowers etc randomly as opposed to being part of a herd when everyone else in the neighborhood is doing it. Also the author sarcastically writes that it’s a sexist holiday while it actually is.. you really need to open up your eyes. I’m no hater on the day, heck people get happy I have no problems with that but at least read between the lines and understand why the day exists. Recommend

    Soccer Striker,

    Saudi Arabia doesn’t recognize marital rape like the secular countries do. And a rape victim there has a better chance of being punished than a rapist, so rape cases frequently go unreported.

    And Saudi Arabia is nowhere near the list of world’s least corrupt states. Here’s the list. Get your facts straight. They are Finland, New Zealand, Sweden, and yes, Denmark.

    I urge everybody to follow Dr. Asad Sadick’s advice. After all, I’m sure he chooses to own no more than two shirts and never eats at a nice restaurant, which is markedly more expensive than eating at home.

    Instead, he saves up all that money and donates it all to Edhi, because he doesn’t believe in spending money on small, non-basic amenities that make him and his loved ones happier.

    That has to be the case, because surely he gets the irony of telling people to not spend a few hundred rupees on roses or chocolates, while spending thousands himself on non-essential stuff.

    It’s extraordinary how we become so charitable at the time of Valentine’s day celebration, but almost completely inconsiderate of the poor when it comes to spending money on extravagant religious rituals and other personal pleasures.Recommend
