valentines day kashmirValentine’s Day has evolved in to what is essentially a nonreligious over-commercialized dating bonanza. It truly is a harmless day in which couples set aside some time to spend with one-another. At least that’s what I thought.

Apparently, someone forgot to inform the Muslims in Kashmir about this though. To them, Valentine’s Day is a western jihad of sorts that was launched in order to corrupt Islamic values the world over.

Two Islamic groups have taken it upon themselves to clean things up and restore civility and sound morals. The Forum Against Social Evil has joined forces with the female-only group known as Dukhtaran-e-Millat (Daughters of the Nation). Together they burned Valentine’s Day cards in the streets and showered blows on unsuspecting couples in restaurants.

But there’s a happy ending of sorts. These groups have been trying to oppress the locals for years and it appears to have had little affect. Stores continue to advertise Valentine’s Day and couples continue to date openly in parks, restaurants, and cafes.
