St. Valentine Akbar!

84% [of Muslims] see Valentine’s Day as unacceptable innovation, “an aspect of imitating the West”

Muslim cleric who called on Muslims to “sever limbs for the sake of Allah” calls Valentine’s Day “immoral”

Kashmir: Valentine’s Day “anti-Islamic and Muslims are not allowed to celebrate the day”

Uzbekistan: Muslim clerics preach against Valentine’s Day at Friday prayers

Saudi Arabia: Religious police ban Valentine’s Day

Indonesia: “Celebrating Valentine’s Day is against Islam”; restraining order issued against celebrating it

Malaysian Islamic Development Department: Valentine’s Day leads to “alcohol, abortion and baby-dumping”

Christian overseas workers living in Saudi Arabia from the Philippines and other countries always take extra precautions, heeding the Saudis’ warning to them specifically to avoid greeting anyone with the words “Happy Valentine’s Day” or exchanging any gift that reeks of romance. A spokesman for a Philippine workers group has commented: “We are urging fellow Filipinos in the Middle East, especially lovers, just to celebrate their Valentine’s Day secretly and with utmost care.”
